Abstract : The patent relates to microleaks in flexible packages which constitute an avenue for microbiological contamination of the contents. These are blocked by immersion of the package in an elastomer polymer solution having a viscosity of 10 to 1000 centipoises which solution enters into the microleak and upon removal of the solvent deposits an elastomer plug which completely and effectively closes the microleak.
