Case Studies

Automatic line for filling and labelling drugs

  • Challenge: Customers required a sterile material that must be easy to clean and resistant to chemicals

  • Material used: Sustarin® C HG

  • R&D phase involving material approvals and sample development

  • Different variations of size

  • Sterile and fully disposable

  • No need for additional sterilisation or sanitisation procedures

ESD and anti-static products for tablet manufacturing

  • Challenge: Customer required anti-static materials for products involved in manufacture of Drugs from powder

  • Materials used: Polystone® G EL used for Glove Ports, Polystone® M AST used for chutes and tubes, Sustarin® C ESD used for manifolds, Fibracon® PTFE AS used for seals and flexible connections

  • ESD and AS materials dissipate static build up generated by the movement of the powders

  • Wide range of temeratures and cleaning agents
