Aptar Pharma Stoppers & PremiumCoat® Solutions

  • Vial Stoppers
  • Lyophilization Stoppers
  • PremiumCoat®

Solutions for single dose, multidose and intravenous delivery

Our vial stoppers leverage our state-of-the-art Bromobutyl for low extractables & leachables, and our Chlorobutyl for non-buffered/acidic drugs, to ensure compatibility with the drug throughout its lifecycle.

Our stoppers are compatible with ISO vials, with either Non-Blowback or European Blowback-specific designs.

Ensuring long-term integrity for lyophilized drugs

Our market-proven Bromobutyl offers low residual moisture and minimized water permeation to protect the integrity of lyophilized drugs.

Our two-legged and igloo designs are combined with preplacement features and rough surface treatments to facilitate the lyophilization process, and to limit the risk of sticking on lyophilization shelves.




Premium protection for your most sensitive drugs

Our PremiumCoat® platform combines our pure Bromobutyl formulation with our market-proven ETFE film-coating and state-of-the-art finishing process to guarantee our lowest level of extractables & leachables, and optimal particulate cleanliness.

The proven functional properties of PremiumCoat® help ensure the drug remains protected from drug filling through to patient administration.

Vial Stoppers for Biotech Drugs, Vaccines and Small Molecule Delivery

Biologic Drug Delivery

Our pure Bromobutyl formulation and PremiumCoat® ETFE film-coated stoppers protect sensitive drugs from extractables & leachables, and are ideal solutions for anticipating vial-to-prefilled (V2P) lifecycle management strategies.

The functional performance of our formulation combined with our versatile designs ensure that the drug remains safe from the time of filling to patient administration.

Single Dose and Multidose Vaccines

Our versatile, market-leading, Bromobutyl formulation, can be combined with our PremiumCoat® ETFE film coating to protect the most sensitive vaccines. Its functional performance enables multi-piercing, supporting safe vaccination campaigns.

Our Chlorobutyl formulation, trusted on the market for over 20 years, limits the generation of particles on high-speed filling lines.

Small Molecules and Generic Delivery

Our Halobutyl formulations offer a versatile panel of solutions that can accommodate aggressive solvents, unbuffered solutions and acidic drug formulations.

Our designs and surface treatments enable high-speed filling and promote efficiency during lyophilization cycles.

With our large production capacity, we secure long-term supply to derisk your projects and ensure patients safely receive their critical doses.
