Italcoat supplies coated aluminium to manufacturers of seals for injectable products, vial caps, tear-off and pilfer-proof caps.
Pharmaceutical industries need to guarantee quality and integrity of their products and aluminium capsules and closures are fundamental to keep intact the essential features of medicines. This is possible thanks to the barrier effect of aluminium that protect drugs from humidity, oxygen and microbiological contaminants, ensuring preservation even under cryogenic conditions.
Yet, coated aluminium is particularly suitable for pharmaceutical applications since its mechanical properties are ideal for deep drawing process, has excellent isotropy, sterilization and corrosion resistance.
Italcoat offers FDA or BGA approved epoxy coating, resistant to degreasing through chlorinated degreaser and sterilisation in water vapour at 121° C for 30 minutes or in oven at 180° C for 90 minutes.
Upon request, we can offer BPA-NIA (Bisphenol A – Not intentionally Added) coatings.
All lacquers are available in the bright, opaque, semi-opaque, semi-transparent and transparent version.
