Premium Film-Coated Components, for Unrivaled Particulate Reduction

Delivering the highest levels of quality to meet increasing requirements

Our experience and expertise combined with our ongoing commitment to quality enables us to deliver premium solutions to your injectable challenges, reducing the risk of contamination and compatibility issues.

As the pharmaceutical and biotech markets continue to develop more sensitive drugs including complex proteins, there is an increased need for more inert injectable components. Our PremiumCoat® range of coated stoppers and plungers are covered with a fluorinated (ETFE) film, which is applied during the manufacturing process. This approach delivers a homogenized protective coating, which is the established best practice method to create the most robust and effective barrier between the drug and the component.

Our PremiumCoat® range of components are compatible with most of the current primary packaging as well as being customizable, to best meet your requirements and support your specific developments.

PremiumCoat® significantly reduces the quantity of leachables long-term

The combination of a pure, state-of the art formulation and film coating offers an optimized compatibility between the component and the drug to reach an optimum chemical inertness. Studies have demonstrated the long-term benefits and performance of Aptar Pharma’s PremiumCoat® components in multiple testing conditions including the utilization of various solvents and sterilization methods, all of which can improve your final product’s shelf-life.

Utilizes our pure, state-of-the-art elastomeric formulation

The reliable sourcing of carefully selected ingredients combined with development and state-of-the-art production of the most suitable and purest elastomer formulations for pharmaceutical use are key.

Our proprietary, pure and ultra-clean elastomeric formulations offer the lowest levels of extractables and leachables (E&L), setting the standard for injectable components.

Thanks to our in-house expertise, we continue to develop innovative formulations offering a balance of both mechanical and physical properties. We use the fewest possible ingredients, ensuring the best results in terms of chemical inertness, which is ideal for your sensitive drugs.

Lower PCI, for optimal protection of your sensitive drugs

Our PremiumCoat® components minimizes the risks linked to particulate contaminations. Thanks to our combination of pure elastomeric formulation and ETFE film coating, our PremiumCoat® components achieve a reduced Particulate Count Index (PCI), offering optimal cleanliness for your most sensitive drugs.

Best-in-class quality to de-risk drug product development

Thanks to enhanced compatibility and tight particulate specifications, PremiumCoat® facilitates and reduces the risk of your project developments. PremiumCoat® offers premium quality with our highest levels of cleanliness, including visual inspection of all of our components.

PremiumCoat® can also be offered Ready-to-Sterilize and Ready-to-Use (Sterile Gamma irradiated).

PremiumCoat® is available in various packaging formats for sterilization on-site or by direct introduction into isolators and Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS).
