Use of Water-Based Coatings in ETO Sterilization

Q.

Can a water based coated paper web be used for ETO packaging?

A.

There are water based coatings that are stable for ETO sterilization applications. The same is true for adhesives and inks. The best course of action is to verify stability with your SPM, and to validate the stability of the coating through appropriate qualification efforts. Verification can be confirmed through visual inspection, IR (verify no migration of the coating to the instrument) and through coating adhesion testing.
