Foam Plugs as Stoppers

Foam plugs are analyzed for its performance with respect to health standard. ‘ACUTE SYSTEMIC TOXICITY TEST’ over rats is conducted to understand its toxicity parameter. This is in accordance with a South Africa Bureau of Standards Test – SANS 640 – 2005, which tests for parameters like weight, density, aging and solvent resistance.

We offer a wide range of Foam plugs in form of block/cylindrical shapes, made up of polyurethane. These are widely used as fillers in tablets/capsules packing when bottled. The composition of Foam Plugs – Urethane do not melt when heated.

Foam plugs used is density 18kg/m3. These foam plugs are reusable which come with consistent density and dimension. Additional features are: auto cleavable, non-absorbent and non-toxic. The foam is produced in blocks – 3m3 which are then cut according to desired dimension during which utmost care is taken to avoid contamination. Antiseptic washing is ensured for cutting blade and board. Cut pieces of foam plugs are packed into a plastic bag, sealed and packed in a final cardboard box.

Our USFDA approved and DMF free pharmaceutical foam plugs are used for pharmaceutical products and drugs like Aspirin Drug packaging to protect products from damage during shipping time.

Salient Features:

  • Blocks/ Cylindrical Shapes
  • Auto-Clavable
  • Non- Absorbent

The foam plugs are performed for its performance with respect to Health standard; accordingly it is performed over rats called ‘ACUTE SYSTEMIC TOXICITY TEST’.

The foam is tested in accordance with a South Africa Bureau of Standards Test – SANS 640 – 2005, which tests for weight, density, ageing and solvent resistance.

Foam used are of reusable quality with consistent density 18kg/m3 and dimension.
