Glass Replacement Syringes:
With recent advancements in pharmaceuticals, the syringe market has experienced significant changes. Traditional glass syringes have limitations that make them incapable of serving the entire market, allowing Plas-Tech engineers to develop plastic syringes as an alternative. Our COP & COC glass replacement plastic syringes are the answer, with improved accuracy and performance advantages over traditional glass syringes.
Benefits of COP & COC plastic syringes over glass syringes: Available in 100% Silicone Free!; DMSO Compatible; Lower cost options; Shatter resistance; Weight: 50% less than glass, thus reducing shipping costs; Very low protein and water absorption; Ability to design in ways impossible with glass; Chemical resistance is very good when compared to glass; NEW! DMSO and Organic Solvent capability for Pre-Filled syringe applications; Solvent bonded and ultrasonically welded; Options for EO, Gamma and Steam Autoclave sterilization; and Tub Fill or ISO Luer Lock Configurations.
COP Plastic Syringes: COP (cyclic olefin polymer) plastic syringes have similar properties to COC syringes, but are even less brittle and can be made into more varied size and complex shaped containers. COP syringes are increasingly popular in applications where high viscosity products require high strength and high transparency to ensure the product is thoroughly injected.
COC Plastic Syringes: Plas-Tech Engineering invested nearly five years in research and development of COC (cyclic olefin copolymer) plastic syringes for the pharmaceutical and medical industry. The unique processing methods we developed allowed us to produce a high quality product that exceeds the accuracy and performance standards set by glass syringes. The superior moisture barrier we deliver with our COC medical syringes extends the shelf life of some pharmaceutical solutions by 3 years, a standard that can't be met by other thermoplastics used in less challenging applications. With COC syringes, the drug remains pure because COC is biologically inert, with very low extractables.
Silicone-Free Syringes: Many syringes in the marketplace use a silicone plunger tip for their seal on the pushrod that goes inside the syringe. Due to potential leaching of silicone, there has been a big push for syringes to be made silicone-free. Plas-Tech Engineering offers silicone-free syringes made from COC and COP, which are then coated with a Fluoropolymers. This creates a zero break force, controlled friction, and is also 100% silicone-free.
Other Plastic Syringes: Plastech Engineering is a leader in pre-filled plastic syringes that may be used in a variety of applications for safe, efficient delivery of pharmaceutical compounds.
More than 1,900 exhibitors present their international range at the world's leading specialist event for industrial plastics processing. The next Fakuma will take place from October 12 to 16, 2021 in the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Center.
The Fakuma offers a comprehensive overview of all plastics technologies: Whether injection molding - here the Fakuma occupies a leading position worldwide - extrusion technology, thermoforming or 3D printing: At the Fakuma the user can find out about all processes and technologies relevant to plastics processing and tools to provide targeted information.
15 December, a global event translated into 7 languages. Live from the SACMI parent company, this webinar will showcase the latest ready-to-market developments for the industry, from technology to new cap design solutions. Key advantages include integrated design of cap-preform systems to optimise performance and cost
Ocean-bound plastics is defined as those that have been recovered from ocean-feeding waterways and inland areas within a 50-kilometre radius of the ocean.
The ocean-bound resin SABIC uses is mechanically recycled and converted into components for new consumer goods and electronics applications, such as TV remote controls and electronic razors. It has the potential to also be used in other industries, such as automotive.
INCREASING AWARENESS OF REUSE AND RECYCLING
The refill station pilot project is scheduled to last for six to eight months, with the aim of gathering experience together with the target group in order to find out which solutions make sense and are feasible for fostering a closed-loop economy. The Hamburg-based company plans to take further steps depending on how well the public responds to the new service.
In May 2020, the manufacturer of the traditional blue “creme” tin announced its commitment to the “Global Plastic Pledge”. Three goals are to be achieved across all brands.
By 2025, all packaging is to be refillable, reusable or recyclable.
The share of recycled materials in plastic packaging is to be increased to 30%.
At the same time, the quantity of new, petroleum-based plastic in use is to be reduced by 50%.
By the end of 2020, Beiersdorf will also have shifted more than 90% of its PET bottles in Europe over to recycled plastic (rPET). This initiative alone will reduce the amount of new plastic by more than 1200 tonnes annually.
REFILL STATIONS FOR DETERGENTS AND WASHING-UP LIQUIDS
With its new brand Love Nature, Düsseldorf-based consumer goods manufacturer Henkel is specifically targeting customers who want to shop more conscientiously and who are prepared to give sustainable packaging alternatives a try.
Since October 2020, customers in 15 selected dm, Rossmann and Müller drugstores have been able to refill Love Nature detergent and washing-up liquid bottles themselves at specially designed refill stations.
To ensure that everything works perfectly from a technical standpoint, Henkel offers special refill bottles for each product group. There are two detergent and two washing-up liquid variants to choose from, each of which can be dispensed into the bottle provided with the label “My detergent” or “My washing-up liquid”. The traditional shelf goods can currently not be refilled.
The bodies of the refillable bottles are made of 100% recycled plastic and can in turn be fully recycled at the end of their service life. The test phase with the refill stations is currently scheduled for one year.

The carry handle is an incredible add-on by Davik that is not limited to a single application or industry. The product was specially developed by Davik‘s R&D – adhesive formulations that make it suitable for all common packaging materials.
But what is carry handle tape? Carry handle tape is combined from a small strip of flexible film (various film variations are available) coated with adhesive and from laminate material also called “label” or “insert”, used for non-adhesive area, This serves as the part that you grab for carrying a pack with full convenience.
The carry handle adhesives were developed over 20 years ago and used since then by customers worldwide. The adhesive properties and holding strength are highly reliable for various types of packs.
The adaptability and convenience offered by the Carry Handle are one of the main reasons behind its popularity. The non-adhesive area of the handle can be printed with any customer design and it can provide your product more innovative, fresh and functional look.
Carry handle tape is simple for application and Davik experts can provide you a full support while updating the design for your pack.
