Co-extrusion is becoming more and more important as the sensitivity of drugs in the pharmaceutical industry increases.
The term co-extrusion stands for the merging of plastic melts of the same or different types. This enables a layer structure with different material properties. This process is used in combinations to produce special mechanical, optical or barrier properties.
Röchling Medical offers the combination of two to six layers.Application
- Storage of aggressive filling goods (e.g. hazardous substances)
- Improvement of the water vapor barrier (moisture-sensitive materials)
- improved barrier properties compared to monomaterials
- possibility of different coloring of the individual layers (e.g. UV protection or company-specific color aspects)
- po product contact through the barrier layer if it is in the middle
In extrusion thickened plastics are continuously pressed out of a shaping opening under high pressure. By means of co-extrusion, several layers can be built up using different plastic melts and thus special mechanical, optical or functional properties can be achieved. Profiles, medical tubes, braidings and shafts for a wide range of applications in pharmaceutical administration, fluid management and surgery are created under normal or clean room conditions for the medical technology.
