SGD Pharma – pre-treated glass for thermosealing applications

Selecting the right primary packaging materials and closure systems are critical for maintaining shelf-life of pharmaceutical products

Many of today’s oral pharmaceutical products are sensitive to moisture and oxygen. For oral products, especially sensitive ones such as powders and solids, adding a moisture and oxygen resistant hermetic seal to the glass bottle brings huge benefits. A hermetic seal protects both the contents and consequently the user as the seal also provides an added level of security as a tamper evident feature.

For over 15 years, SGD Pharma has offered an industry leading solution to bottle sealing challenges. Using a well-established external treatment on the sealing surface of the glass greatly enhances and guarantees an optimal seal adhesion of the foil. The treated glass bottles are suitable for both induction or heat seals, both of which help form a completely hermetic seal which can maximize product shelf life and provide best-in-class product protection.

SGD Pharma’s external treatment is suitable for use in pharmaceutical-grade packaging and is food contact compliant.
