Container seals from AdvantaPure now available in silicone and TPE

Previously offered only in platinum-cured silicone, the closures are used in pharmaceutical, biotech, laboratory and other clean applications. BioClosures work with flexible container systems, laboratory bottles, and sampling and storage receptacles of glass, plastic or metal.
AdvantaPure's TPE material, AdvantaFlex, provides an alternative to silicone. The company says that it offers lower absorption and adsorption characteristics than silicone and does not contain silicone oils. As tubing, AdvantaFlex provides weldability and helps eliminate the need for costly aseptic connectors. It is also heat-sealable.
AdvantaPure, a division of NewAge Industries, specialises in clean products for the pharmaceutical, biomedical, food, beverage, chemical, and cosmetic industries. The company is based in Southampton, PA, USA.
