Moisture-proof film molds to surface

Parafilm® M is a semi-transparent, flexible, thermoplastic film with two-way stretch.

  • Non-toxic and free from plasticizers, primarily composed of polyolefins and paraffin waxes offering good resistance against acids, alkalis and some organic solvents—use not recommended with acetone, diethyl ether or tetrachloride
  • 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 odorless, colorless 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
  • Two color options available in 2” rolls (natural and purple) for color coding purposes
  • Disposable

Efficient and cost-effective covering for:

  • Test tubes
  • Beakers
  • Vials
  • Petri dishes
  • Flasks
  • Various other instruments and objects with irregular surfaces
  • Overwrap to further secure stoppers, lids and caps
  • Shelf or tray liner to prevent slipping of bottles or instruments
