Clear High Barrier Materials
Exploring clear alternatives to aluminum foil - The trend towards packaging products in clear materials continues to gain momentum. Product visibility can be a powerful marketing tool. It allows for product differentiation and identification, while appealing to consumers’ desire to see what they are purchasing. Manufacturers enjoy the ability to easily inspect packaged product through the use of vision systems, metal detectors, and manual visual inspection. Because clear materials are metal-free, RFID and security/theft sensors are not inhibited, pleasing the retailer. The material choices that we have today allow for a variety of approaches when packaging sensitive products. Clear high-barrier materials that can compete with aluminum foil on both performance and economics are a reality.
Optimization of Cold-Form Foil
Identifying and optimizing for performance requirements in cold form foil. Cold-form foils have been successfully deployed in pharmaceutical, medical device and in vitro diagnostic/point- of-care test kits for many years. As research scientists continue to create innovative solutions, demands on cold-form foils continue to grow and develop. It is critical, therefore, to have a solid understanding of the specific requirements that these foils need to meet, how the desired performance is realized, and how both requirements and material design impact the overall package design. In this white paper, we will look more closely at the interaction of cold-form foil requirements, package design, and manufacturing processes, with a view to understanding how all of these need to work together to achieve optimal package performance so that patients can receive the life-saving therapies they need.
