TPE for Consumer Goods

The SOFT EST.® TPE range has been created especially for consumer goods applications. It can be processed smoothly and efficiently by injection molding. This brand benefits from our long experience in manufacturing TPE granulates and developing TPE formulations suitable for highly regulated markets. The range encompasses 21 materials made from flexible TPE compounds. These include highly transparent, translucent and natural-colored versions with Shore hardness values from A20 to A85. The materials are all food-safe according to EU 10/2011 and FDA regulations. The products are suitable for applications involving direct contact with foods containing water, acids, alcohol and fats and also with dry foods; in all these situations the correct ratio must be maintained between the contact area and the total area.

TPE Compounds for medical syringe piston seals

Seals for medicine and pharmaceuticals need to comply with various and extremely demanding tasks considering that they are used in critical components and processes such as in therapeutic, diagnostic equipment or in infusion devices. As a general rule, materials must correspond with the specifications of the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration as well as the USP Class VI Standards. They need to be tested for biocompatibility (ISO 10993) and physiological safety as well as guarantee the material’s compatibility with the human organism if there is direct contact between the material/product and patient. Sterilizability as well as resistance to chemicals and media are other characteristics to be taken into consideration.

By applying the corresponding level of care, PROVAMED® TPE are exclusively compounded from raw materials approved for medical applications and subject to strict selection criteria. This material quality means that products thus manufactured pass the decisive medical tests.

A syringe – for administering medication (injections), drawing body fluids (puncture) or tissue (biopsy), infusing fluids and nutrients as well as for irrigating wounds – comprises a cylindrical cavity containing a mobile piston, a conical or cylindrical nozzle, and a seal mounted at the end of the piston. By the way, the first syringe for administering liquid medication – so-called injectables – was developed by a Frenchman, Charles-Gabriel Pravaz, in 1841. While the disposable syringe bodies are usually made of polypropylene or cycloolefin copolymer plastic, the seals are based on rubber, caoutchouc, silicon or TPE. A variety of demands are made of these seals.

Leakproof closure of the syringe body, support of the piston movement for precise administration, user friendliness and patient welfare, to name but a few. Apart from function, sterility and low-migration properties, the material must also meet the requirements of the EN ISO 7886 standard (for disposable syringes) establishing its gliding properties, tightness and mechanics. The connector on a catheter coupling must be capable of withstanding specified tensile forces on the one hand but must not be crimped or otherwise damaged on the other.

Apart from caoutchouc, the material of choice in the past was often silicon as it was regarded as being generally compatible. Nowadays, increasing miniaturization means that processing often represents a challenge even for experienced injection-molding experts. And there is much to be said for using TPE which are comparably easy to process as they contain a very low percentage of emitable substances, are recyclable and cost-effective, and display very good sealing and adhesion properties.

Disposable syringes are usually packed individually and sterilized. Sterilization often takes the form of gamma radiation. For many plastics, impingement by this highly-energetic radiation represents a major challenge. Embrittlement, discoloration and in some cases extreme changes in terms of mechanical properties can be the result. These effects need to be taken into consideration as early as the formulation stage for the TPE recipe. The fact that PROVAMED® TPE are suitable, especially for technical medical applications requiring sterilization of the end product, has been proven by numerous tests prior to and after deployment of the various sterilization methods. Even after a high dose (50kGy) of gamma radiation or autoclaving at 134 °C, hardly any changes were detected in terms of mechanical properties and the values were close to the respective original tensile strength value.

PROVAMED® TPE can be adapted to a wide variety of customized requirement profiles. They also offer a particularly good degree of adhesion to thermoplastics such as PE, PP, PS, ABS, PC and PA, which is also maintained even with continuous contact with media and at increased temperatures. Furthermore, they are free of PVC, phthalates, silicon and latex, which means they are also free of allergens.

TPE for medical drip chambers of IV sets

PVC is still used in the vast majority of these devices, but there has been a concerted effort over the years to move away from this material because of perceived health concerns. TPEs are a safe bet, according to Actega, especially in this application.

Firmenporträt

ACTEGA DS GmbH was founded in 1920 under the name of Diersch & Schröder. The company specializes in the manufacture and development of soft elastic plastics in granulate form and sealing compounds for food closures and packaging, TPE materials for medical and pharmaceutical articles as well as for consumer goods.



ACTEGA DS develops, produces and markets specialized TPE materials for highly regulated markets such as the medical and pharmaceutical sector and the consumer goods industry. ACTEGA DS is a world leader in the manufacture of sealing components for plastic and metal closures in the food and drinks industries, supplying innovative, application-oriented TPE solutions. Since the company was founded, ACTEGA DS has been constantly presenting the latest technologies, which they develop and market hand in hand with their customers, manufacturers of closure machines and other decision-makers in the industry. When developing materials for sealing applications involving direct contact with foods, the company makes good use of its in-depth knowledge and expertise around thermoplastic elastomers. It has thus been able to develop for example SOFT EST.® TPE and PROVALIN® - innovative TPE materials and closure compounds with most minimal migration. The focus on TPEs for sensitive application areas and highly regulated markets was a major factor, enabling the company to become successfully established within the market and provide broad portfolio of materials for applications in the beverage and food industries, the consumer goods industry and medical technology. Whether TPE plastic granulates for toys, TPE seals, PVC plastisols for closures, thermoplastic elastomers for children's toys, household articles or TPE for kitchen applications or even medical technology articles, ACTEGA DS has the solution ready.
