Well-known as the best quality rubber turn-over closure with serrated stopper, Suba-Seal brand is available exclusively from Sigma-Aldrich. Ideal for air and moisture-sensitive chemistry procedures. After piercing with non-coring needle, rubber closes puncture, providing air and moisture tight seal to protect contents of vessel or container from atmosphere.

Storage Note for Natural Rubber Septa: Store septa in a closed bag out of sunlight to retard blooming, which is the formation of a whitish film on the surface of the rubber. Blooming is a natural process and does not affect performance. Remove visible bloom by washing or wiping off before use.
Note: For extra security when using large bore transfer needles, fasten septum to bottle or flask opening with a wrap-it tie. See ties and accessory tool listings.
