Aptar CSP Technologies, part of AptarGroup, Inc. and an active material science company, collaborated with ProAmpac, a material science and flexible packaging company, to develop and launch ProActive Intelligence Moisture Protect (MP-1000). This next-generation platform technology combines Aptar CSP’s proprietary 3-Phase Activ-Polymer technology with ProAmpac’s flexible blown film technology to deliver a patent-pending, moisture-adsorbing flexible packaging solution. This is the first in a series of active microclimate management packaging solutions to mitigate degradation risk, maintain potency, and improve product performance.

Aptar CSP’s 3-Phase Activ-Polymer platform technology is a highly engineered active material science solution trusted by global brands to protect sensitive drug products, probiotics, medical devices, drug delivery systems, and foods. By incorporating the moisture adsorbing Activ-Polymer material into a flexible film structure, MP-1000 delivers high-quality moisture protection without the need for add-on desiccant sachets, thus reducing manufacturing downtime. This solution not only adsorbs excess moisture inside the package but also shields the contents from moisture exposure that typically occurs when moisture molecules pass through the packaging en route to an add-on desiccant.

This active packaging solution features varying moisture capacities to deliver customized microclimate protection that meets differing product needs. Available in rollstock or pre-made pouches, MP-1000 has excellent seal characteristics and runs on high-speed form-fill-sealing equipment, ensuring product integrity and compatibility with existing flexible packaging equipment.

“We are pleased to unveil this new platform of active material science solutions with ProAmpac. The goal of this collaboration is to transform the way active packaging is delivered and fulfill unmet needs by providing the market with a fully integrated, flexible, multi-layer film solution, powered by CSP’s proven Activ-Polymer technology,” said Badre Hammond, vice president of global commercial operations and general manager APAC for Aptar CSP Technologies. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with ProAmpac to leverage the current platform to develop new active materials that address a broad range of product stability challenges.”

“We are excited to launch the Moisture Protect MP-1000 platforms, the newest addition to the ProActive Intelligence product line. This innovative product has a high moisture-adsorbing capacity and is set to revolutionize moisture protection in flexible packaging. Our extensive material science work and exclusive collaboration with Aptar CSP Technologies has enabled us to bring the latest active packaging products to the market,” said Hesam Tabatabaei, senior vice president of global product development and innovation for ProAmpac.

Aptar CSP’s Activ-Polymer technology is a trusted solution for protecting high-value drugs, diabetes test strips, continuous glucose monitoring devices, probiotics, drug delivery devices, and even medical devices and implants across the globe. It is custom-engineered to provide a broad spectrum of product-specific protection in a wide range of physical formats. Key capabilities include scavenging oxygen, odors, and VOCs, emitting aromas or antimicrobials, and mitigating risk of mutagenic N-nitrosamine impurity formation and drug degradation.
