Aptar Pharma announces metal-free multidose nasal spray pump

Aptar Pharma is launching APF Futurity, its first metal-free, designed-for-recycling multidose nasal spray pump for nasal saline and other over-the-counter pharma products.

Having achieved a Class AA certification for European recycling streams from cyclos-HTP, APF Futurity is made of polyolefin; it is designed to be free of parts made of metal or other materials that would disrupt a plastic recycling stream, negating the need for separation and reportedly improving the quality of recyclate produced.

According to the company, the spray pump can be used in combination with and recycled alongside a polypropylene or HDPE container bottle, leading to a more convenient user experience.

Patent protection has reportedly been filed for the spray pump, which claims to deliver precise and consistent dosing with soft actuation. The Futurity platform as a whole aims to meet increasing demand for access to recyclable products, with 77% of respondents to a 2022 study by Aptar Pharma describing recyclability as an ‘important’ or ‘very important’ factor in the products they buy.
