What is parafilm?

A versatile, moisture-resistant, thermoplastic flexible plastic for a wide variety of clinical and industrial applications, Parafilm M® film has been used with confidence for years in scientific research and laboratory settings.

It is a proven fast, economical covering or stopper for test tubes, beakers, vials, petri dishes, flasks and various instruments and objects with irregular surfaces.

It is an ideal shelf or tray liner to prevent slipping of bottles or instruments. It is odorless and semi-transparent.

In laboratories, Parafilm M® sheet is a thermoplastic, self-sealing film that holds moisture loss to a minimum and offers excellent barrier protection to the contents of tubes, flasks, culture tubes, etc…
