Tekni-Films, a Tekni-Plex business, will be discussing its recently-launched super barrier-coated (SBC) thermoformable film for pharmaceutical blister packs at MD&M East, June 12-14, Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York City, Booth 1839.
Tekni-Films SBC 240 is being positioned as a performance and improved-cost alternative for 4- and 6-mil PCTFE and cold formed foil for thermoformable blister applications. The triplex structure is ideal for applications such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, probiotics and other related products.
In addition to its desirable clear properties, SBC 240 doesn’t require stiffening ribs, which can be used to improve the ability of PCTFE to lie flat, nor the oversized blister wells created by cold forming. This means that pharmaceutical companies can use a smaller blister card to contain the same number of tablets or capsules, or increase the count on a same-sized card. The end result is material cost savings all the way through the packaging process, including cartons and cases, as well as improved production efficiencies.
Tekni-Films will also be discussing its TekniMD® PX copolyester film series with grades that provide a cost effective alternative to PETG for thermoformed medical tray packaging. The company also offers a laminated alternative to PVC for thermoformed pharmaceutical blister applications.
Tekni-Films also will be displaying its ultra-high barrier PVDC coating and a wide variety of other multilayer packaging structures that deliver the stringent oxygen and water vapor barrier properties necessary to protect pharmaceutical and medical device products.
