Rubber coated closures

Omniflex is an inert, flexible, fluorinated polymer coating for pharmaceutical rubber closures which covers the entire product surface, including the trim edge. Whether it is Omniflex, OmniflexPlus or OCP (Omniflex Coated Plungers), the chemical inertness of the fluorinated polymer coating provides a very high degree of compatibility with pharmaceutical or biotechnology products.

With the latest innovation, Omniflex3G, Helvoet Pharma has fused its Omniflex fluorinated polymer coating together with its ultra-clean FM457 compound to form the latest major advancement in rubber closure technology.

The revolutionary new Omniflex3G closure possesses exceptional properties including a rubber substrate with exceptional purity, a superior fluoropolymer barrier that covers the stopper completely, silicone-free machineability, and the highest level of seal integrity that is maintained even after exposure to ultra-low, cold storage temperatures of -78°C / -108.4°F.

The absence of additional siliconisation makes the Omniflex range the key component for biotech applications, Cephalosporines, Cytostatics, oil solutions and high-end pharmaceutical product developments. Our coated closures range includes serum and lyophilisation 13mm, 20mm and 32mm stoppers as well as a full range of prefilled syringe components.

RfS and RfU components

Helvoet Pharma supplies to its customers products in RfS or RfU. In both cases the products are washed with purified water and rinsed with water for injection. When using RfS components, a very high standard of particulate and biological cleanliness is applied. The products are packed in special autoclavable bags (Tyvek).

There is no need to wash and repack goods before the sterilisation process in the autoclave or use our RfU components, where components are supplied gammairradiated. Components can be used immediately in the clean room without pre-treatment. Both RfS and RfU product treatments are based upon validated processes

Prefilled Syringe Components

Developing elastomeric components for prefilled syringes is no easy task. The high demands on compound compatibility and functional performance require the most advanced formulations and designs. As always, Helvoet Pharma is up to the task.

Components for prefilled syringes must perform a variety of functions. Plungers, for instance, must not only ensure a perfect plunger barrel seal integrity (PBSI) but must also demonstrate perfect gliding behaviour in order to administer the syringe contents safely and consistently, even after several years of storage. Tip caps and needle shields, on the other hand,…

Small Volume Parenteral Components

Whether it be for powder, serum or freeze-dried applications, you can count on Helvoet Pharma components to deliver optimum protection, compatibility, safety and performance for small volume parenterals.

Helvoet Pharma produces a broad range of standard 13mm and 20mm rubber stoppers and aluminium seals for all commonly used glass vials, all of which meet and exceed the exacting pharmaceutical requirements of containing and protecting small volume parenterals. As with all our products, our small volume parenteral components are designed to ensure maximum flexibility,…
