Pharmaceutical Packaging Films (PVC/PVDC/ALU- ALU/ BLISTER)

Packaging Films are used for sealing off the top of the products or the contents of the product. Packaging film possess good barrier properties on their own,but with the aid of coatings,film types,and manufacturing methods,the positive attributes skyrockets. From ease of handling and storage,overall cost savings,and convenience, packaging has cemented itself in the packaging world. Packaging Films add visual appeal to products and packaging .

Variants in Packaging Films (See Specification)

PVC / PVDC films

PVC(Polyvinyl chloride) and PVDC (polyvinyldine chloride)are used in pharmaceuticals as primary packaging materials, which protect pharmaceutical product against Oxygen and odour, moisture , water vapour transmission ,contamination and bacteria . These properties make PVC/PVDC the material of choice for blister packaging. It is available in sizes – 40 g/m² PVDC ,60 g/m² PVDC ,90 g/m² PVDC ,120 g/m² PVDC.

PVC Monofilms

PVC, is the third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer, and used worldwide for packaging variety of products like food, medicines ,etc. it is flexible, light, cost-effective tough and safe. PVC mono films has excellent organoleptic properties (does not affect the taste of the packaged food or medicine). PVC mono films protects against contamination by helping to prevent the spread of germs during manufacture, distribution and display. PVC mono films protects the medicines from sun light and UV rays.

Rigid Barrier Films

Description: PVC is a high performance calendared rigid film, offering high chemical resistance. Available in Film thickness

ranging from 150 µ to 500 µ.

Features:

  • Excellent thermoforming characteristics.
  • Sealable with a wide range of heat-seal coatings.
  • Barrier for moisture and gas transmissions
A-PET and PET-G films

APET is a process in PET packaging, but in a specific stage. PET is the highly common material used to make products like water bottles. When it’s being moulded in an amorphous state, it goes by the name APET.

PET-G is similar to PET packaging, but with a key difference – glycol. It prevents the material from crystallizing and becoming breakable. Its slightly-softer exterior makes it highly impact-resistant.

Alu Alu Foil
Alu Alu Foils

Many of alu alu foil’s properties combine to provide user-friendly, safe and versatile packaging formats for pharmaceutical tablets, creams, liquids and powders. Alufoil’s excellent barrier properties totally exclude moisture, oxygen and other gases, micro-organisms and light, maintaining degradable products in peak condition over long periods.

Blister Foils

Blister Foils are several types of pre-formed plastic packaging used for small consumer goods, foods, and for pharmaceuticals. The primary component of a blister pack is a cavity or pocket made from a formable web, usually a thermoformed plastic.

Applications

  • PVC film can be found in stretch wrap for industrial and pallet wrap
  • A-PET & PET-G film are long lasting , give seamless finish and are easy for packaging
  • PVDC has excellent moisture and gas barrier properties and is resistant to grease and oil, which makes it ideal for household wrap.
