Gerresheimer Presents a Substantially Increased Barrier with the Duma Twist-Off Advanced Container

Düsseldorf/Paris – The developers at Gerresheimer believe in the principle of 'you can make a good thing better' and are now presenting the results of their work, an improved Duma Twist-Off container called Duma Twist-Off Advanced for solid pharmaceuticals. The improvements extend from more uniform wall thickness, through optimized closure design to compatibility with all other high quality Duma Twist-Off and Duma OneLiner closures.

"As a result of our longstanding collaboration with our customers we have been able to integrate their suggestions and requirements for sustainable increased barrier in our containers. We continuously optimize our products, even the proven pharmaceutical packaging products, so that we can deliver added value to our customers and patients," said Niels Düring, Global Senior Vice President Plastic Packaging.

Duma Twist-Off Advanced containers are more stable than their predecessors because the thinner areas have been eliminated and they have a more uniform wall thickness distribution. Their permeation has also been further reduced and their barrier properties improved. The new design is compatible with all other high quality Duma Twist-Off closures, including the Duma OneLiner. Duma Twist-Off Advanced also has a full set of documentation for product registration.

The new Duma Twist-Off Advanced containers with closures are available in sizes 15, 35, 75, 100 and 150 ml.

The Gerresheimer Duma, Dudek and Triveni branded products include a broad range of containers in HDPE and closures in LDPE PP for the pharmaceutical market. A wide choice of solid dosage, closure and security systems makes the range fully adaptable to the individual requirements of the customer. It includes containers with screw caps, snap closures, child-safe and senior-friendly closures.
