TekniPlex Healthcare, which uses advanced materials science experience to provide better patient results, introduced the world’s first fully transparent recyclable mid-barrier blister packaging.
Its new packaging material breakthrough comprises barrier protection against moisture.
The mid-barrier blisters have a polyolefin blister film seal with a barrier PP lidding film. This packaging is the first time a formed blister + lidding selection is certified as recyclable– a considerable milestone in the evolving inspiration to make healthcare packaging more sustainable. From a manufacturing perspective, initial machinability studies have been positive, with large-scale tests planned for the near future.
“The proficiency in creating transparent barrier blister packages recyclable is a critical phase toward healthcare materials circularity, one in which technological challenges must be overcome with extensive research, trials, and dedication,” said Chris Qualters, CEO of TekniPlex Healthcare. “We are extremely proud to be the foremost materials science company qualified to meet this longstanding market need. We look ahead to showcasing the new blister packages at Pack Expo.”
