– Small piece of this film will seal test tubes, beakers, flasks, culture tubes, etc
– Made of a semi-transparent, flexible and waterproof material
– Resistant to most acids and alcohols yet is gas permeable
– 100mm width

PARAFILM stretches up to 200% and clings even around irregular shapes and surfaces. The sealing film is free of plasticizers and consists primarily of polyolefins and paraffin waxes. PARAFILM M is resistant up to 48 hours against many polar substances, eg saline solutions, inorganic acids and alkaline solutions.

Protect the integrity of research applications with a tight moisture-barrier that holds a strong seal and doesn′t release from glassware, despite off-gassing
Reduce the risk of tampered data with a covering that is odourless, colourless and semi-transparent
Prevents moisture and volume loss due to material composition and tight seal
Flexible and self-sealing material allows it to cling around irregular shapes and surfaces
Stretches more than 200% of original length
Resistant up to 48 hours against many polar substances such as saline solutions, inorganic acids and alkaline solutions
