C-Flex® EZ Top® Container Closure Improves Productivity Versus Stainless SteelSource: Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics
Biopharmaceutical manufacturers have found that switching from stainless steel closures to C-Flex® EZ Top® single-use solutions can improve productivity, lower costs and ensure product integrity during their manufacturing and laboratory processes.
The single-use EZ Tops® are made of fully characterized Class VI C-Flex® thermoplastic elastomer; the smooth inner bore eliminates risk of product entrapment and buildup that may occur around stainless steel fittings. Additional risks involved with stainless steel assemblies include the possibility of product loss due to leaks and the need to define a useful life for the stainless steel segment. Even after the useful life is determined, the manufacturer must rely on the operators for replacement at the appropriate time.
Switching to C-Flex® EZ Top® Container Closure Assemblies also eliminates costs inherent with stainless steel products such as cleaning validation costs and labor costs to assemble the stainless steel closure system.
