Rubber Bands for the Medical & Pharmaceutical Industry
Rubber bands are used in a wide variety of areas in the pharmaceutical industry, especially when it comes to bundling. A nasal spray against hay fever can be combined with the appropriate eye drops. Or a disposable syringe with a needle. A package leaflet can also be attached to a product using a rubber band. Elastic cords for the production of FFP2 masks were also made for a specific project. These rubber cords could be glued to the mask in a thermal process.
As a rule, only latex-free rubber bands are used in the pharmaceutical industry. This requirement is due to the fact that no substances containing latex may be used in hospitals, medical practices or care facilities in order to avoid latex allergies. H+D can supply latex-free rubber bands using a special fully synthetic rubber.
