Spartech, a manufacturer of engineered thermoplastics and custom packaging solutions, has announced the availability of Tufpak high-temperature polypropylene films and bags that offer universal sterilizability features primarily for medical and biopharmaceutical applications.
Designed for high-temperature aseptic packaging, the Tufpak proprietary polypropylene blown film extrusion process produces superior physical plastic properties as compared to standard blown film producers and converters. This substrate can be sterilized in both high-temperature (steam autoclave) methods and through radiation (electron beam and gamma ray) processes. This polypropylene product can withstand ionizing radiation sterilization for medical packaging and healthcare research environments.
Copolymer affinity materials also make it possible to create aseptic bags and pouches that allow for sampling of the packaging content within a sterile environment that protects against outside contaminants.
Utilizing this technology, Spartech offers: autoclave polypropylene biohazard bags specifically intended for biotech, pharmaceutical, healthcare, medical research, and government/military industries; and Tufpak breathable bags designed for bioremediation, biopesticides, tissue culture growth, agricultural, and bioreactor applications.
