Fluoropolymer sample and bioprocess bags

Our VERSIV extruded fluoropolymer films are used across the medical and life science industries for fluid bags. Their chemical inertness and low-temperature flexibility make them well-suited for cryogenic sample bags used in biotechnology and genetic studies. Our FEP film and other melt extrudable and heat sealable fluoropolymer films are ideal for collecting, preparing, and storing tissue samples.

Our Products

VERSIV™ FEP Hazy

Fluoropolymer film manufactured from fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) resin that makes it highly suited for insulating wires in high temperature or aggressive environments.

Clear Film

A fluoropolymer film that we have manufactured from fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) resin to support applications that have unusual endurance, thermal or chemical requirements.

Drug Delivery Vials

Rubber pharma and lab closures

Our VERSIV high-performance films are used as cap liners, stoppers, and plunger laminates. As a barrier, they minimize interaction between the drug to enhance the purity, and shelf life and reduce the number of recalls. Our films do not contaminate samples, while their high thermoforming and bonding properties mean they can conform to complex shapes.

Our Products

VERSIV™ Cast PTFE Film product family image

VERSIV™ Cast PTFE Films have a special multi-layer construction comprised of various layers configured with different polymers and polymer blends – which can be customized to meet your unique needs. They are used in heat weldable and anti-static conductive applications as well as mold release and vacuum bagging.

Edged Skived PTFE

The outstanding insulation and low friction properties mean Skived PTFE Films are the first choice for niche food, pharma and electronics release applications, as well as storage tank liners and pump and valve diaphragms. The wide product range includes different types of skived PTFE suitable for unique customer applications – like Virgin PTFE, modified PTFE and PTFE compounds. A bondable version with best-in-class etching on one or both sides is also available.

Zitex G Family

Microporous PTFE (Zitex®) G is used as a hydrophobic venting membrane, gas diffusion membrane in sensors, and filter membrane for particle filtration.

Transdermal patches

Our high-performance films are developed and manufactured to serve as medical release films for skin-mounted devices in medical and pharmaceutical applications. USFDA approved, they achieve the correct release levels and minimize cross-contamination to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness and medical device performance. The films provide chemical and thermal flexibility as well as excellent mechanical performance.

Our Products

ETFE E2

ETFE E2 General Purpose film can be used in diverse and demanding  applications like dry-erase writing surfaces, protective laminates for outdoor graphics, and front sheets in photovoltaic (PV) cells. Non-stick, self-cleaning, and heat-sealable, C-treated bondable versions are also available.

Clear Release Liner

Designed specifically for FDA-compliant protection and release, these polyester film substrates are used against medical grade adhesives and products.

Life Science- Orthopedics and Prosthetics

Orthopedics and prosthetics

Comfort is an essential part of the recovery process for those dependent on the use of orthopedics or prosthetics. These products are worn for extended periods of time and any discomfort or sores caused by friction negatively impact recovery. Our VERSIV products line sensitive contact areas to reduce or eliminate irritation zones. They are long-lasting, yet easily replaceable.

Clean Lab

Lab surface protection

It is essential for the effective functioning of medical and pharmaceutical labs that surfaces are kept clean, sterile, and damage-free. Our VERSIV surface protection films deliver excellent resistance to chemical attack and easy cleaning from strong acids and bases. These fluoropolymer films also offer reliable protection from scratches, abrasions, and other damage that can occur in busy lab environments.
