West FluroTec® barrier films protect medications by providing a barrier that minimizes interaction between the drug and the closure while maintaining the integrity of the container closure. In addition, the fluoropolymer film reduces absorption of the drug product, an important benefit to the so-called shelf life of most drugs. The West FluroTec® film is applied during the molding process and is compatible with complex shaped closures typically required for dry powder and lyophilized applications.
