FluroTec® Barrier Film

An investment in drug protection

West FluroTec barrier film helps protect drugs by providing a barrier that minimizes interaction between the drug and the closure while maintaining container closure integrity. In addition, the fluoropolymer film reduces absorption and adsorption of the drug product, an important benefit for maintaining the strength and shelf life of most drugs.
