The proven concept of a fluoropolymer film coating technology in combination with Datwyler’s ultra-low extractable rubber formulation forms a protective barrier reducing drug-stopper interaction to obtain the lowest level of extractables. The chemical and functional characteristics of UltraShield have been specifically designed to securely store drugs under ultra-low temperatures up to -80°C and to provide compatibility with modern solvent-based drug excipients. The lubrication of the non-drug contact part of the stopper is fixed with an innovative curing system not requiring any additional curing agents. This results in flawless machineability while offering best-in-class subvisible particle levels and optimal chemical performance.
UltraShield™ is manufactured according to Datwyler’s FirstLine® concept ensuring the highest quality standards on the market. This standard is an advanced manufacturing concept for high-quality elastomer components for the healthcare industry with state-of-the-art clean room technology, automatic production cells, fully automatic camera inspection and a unique washing process.
UltraShield™ is the complementary solution to Datwyler’s existing product range.
With best-in-class extractable and leachable profiles and the highest quality standards, both UltraShield™ and OmniFlex® have a unique set of value-added features that makes them complementary in addressing any of our customers’ needs with the ultimate solution.Geert Moens
