TSB 2003/011: Quantification of Surface Silicone on Pharmaceutical Packaging Components

Review of stopper siliconization process and West’s proprietary atomic absorption method for quantification of surface silicone oil levels on stoppers.
In the pharmaceutical packaging industry, silicone oil has traditionally been used on elastomeric components to reduce friction between the components and their environment. This reduction in friction improves the transportation, shelf life, machinability and insertion force of the siliconized components...
