EVERTIS LAUNCHES EVERCARE™ BRAND FOR THE HEALTHCARE PACKAGING MARKET

Evertis launches Evercare™ brand, a foremost supplier of specialty and innovative medical-grade films designed to provide excellent performance and help regulatory compliance to the healthcare market. Evercare™ is made on over 65 years of trusted specialized Evertis experience in developing PET and PETG films for regulated applications that fulfill sustainability credentials and are now compliant in meeting the rigorous demands of the healthcare industry.

Evercare™ sits in a vertically integrated Group with a unique value proposition to Healthcare customers regarding innovation, sustainability, and supply chain security. As film converters for packaging, Evertis is integrated with Selenis, a premium supplier of innovative copolyester resins with solutions specifically developed and certified for the medical value chain to support patient safety further. As a group, it fully understands and plays its part in circularity while reducing the carbon footprint of its products.

Evercare™ PET and PETG drop-in solutions offer performance and sustainability advantages compared to other materials. Their films facilitate the thermoforming process, provide improved mechanical and optical properties, and have a better resistance to sterilization. Manufactured in strict compliance with GMP standards and support regulatory compliance needs, Evercare™ films are offered with declarations such as ISO10993, USP661.1, and ISO11607, as well as change notification.

Gonzalo Lopez-Oleaga, Evertis Europe Deputy CEO, said, “This is another key milestone in the journey of our Group of businesses. As innovators and thought leaders in polyester-based materials, we are now positioned to help healthcare companies meet their sustainability packaging goals, now and into the future. Behind Evercare™, we have made large investments operationally in technology and, most importantly, GMP manufacturing supported by full certifications to service this market”.

Like other industries, healthcare packaging faces the challenges of improving sustainability. This is why the Evercare product range offers plug-and-play recyclable PET-based PET-based solutions and two other sustainable options: bio-based and chemically recycled materials with up to 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. These options take advantage of vertical integration with Selenis, meeting the same quality and regulatory standards and representing an excellent opportunity to lower carbon footprint.

Casimiro Sacchetti, CSO of Evertis Americas, said, “It’s an exciting and unique offering for the Healthcare market. It’s the coming together of experience and deep technical knowledge underpinned by a truly integrated, vertical operational set-up from resin production to extrusion of medical-grade films. With the innovative Evercare™ film range, we are actively supporting the move of our medical & pharma customers towards safe and eco-friendly packaging solutions.”
