Technical Data, Closures
Gray Bromobutyl / 39 with Complete Coat
Pros:
Low gas and vapor permeability, good for multiple piercing applications,
compatible with most cephalosporin’s, resistant to animal, vegetable, and mineral oils,
good resistance to aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated solvents.
Cons:
Not recommended for use with ketones. Can be autoclaved and irradiated.
Gray Bromobutyl / 46
Pros:
Low gas and vapor permeability, good for multiple piercing applications, excellent
moisture absorption and desorption properties following autoclave and lyophilization
drying cycles.
Cons:
Poor resistance to mineral oil, aliphatic, aromatic, and chlorinated solvents. Can
be autoclaved and irradiated.
