Blister aluminum foil advantages

Barrier properties: Blister aluminum foil provides an excellent barrier against moisture, gases, and light, protecting the pharmaceutical product from degradation and ensuring its stability and effectiveness.

Protection: The foil provides physical protection to the product, preventing damage during handling, transportation, and storage.

Tamper evidence: Blister aluminum foil can be designed to provide tamper-evident packaging, ensuring the integrity of the product.

Printability: The foil can be easily printed with product information, dosage instructions, expiry dates, and manufacturer details, providing important information to patients and healthcare professionals.

Versatility: Blister aluminum foil can be used for packaging a wide range of pharmaceutical products, including tablets, capsules, and pills.

Convenience: Blister packaging is convenient for consumers, as it allows for easy dispensing and storage of individual doses.

Cost-effective: Blister aluminum foil is cost-effective compared to other types of packaging materials, making it an economical choice for pharmaceutical companies.

Child-Resistance: A blister packaging with a cover foil made of soft aluminum is considered to be more child-resistant.

PTP medicinal aluminum foil

PTP pharmaceutical packaging aluminum foil (Press Through Packaging) is an aluminum foil material specially designed for pharmaceutical blister packaging. It is widely used in the field of pharmaceutical packaging. It is mainly used for the sealed packaging of tablets, capsules, suppositories and other solid preparations. It is combined with medicinal plastic films (such as PVC, PVDC or PCTFE, etc.) through thermoforming to form independent Each vesicle encapsulates a piece of medicine, which not only ensures the safety of the medicine, but also makes it convenient for consumers to carry and use.

Pharmaceutical Packaging Aluminum Foil Used

PTP pharmaceutical packaging aluminum foil is usually composed of multi-layer structures, including but not limited to:

Protective layer (OP): Optional outer protective film to prevent external factors from affecting the aluminum foil.

Outer printing layer: used to print drug information, such as trademarks, expiration dates, batch numbers, etc.

Aluminum foil substrate (AL): The core part is made of high-purity aluminum after rolling. It has good barrier properties (preventing the penetration of oxygen and moisture), light-shielding properties, and certain physical strength and temperature resistance.

Inside Printed Layer: Sometimes inside printing is done to enhance aesthetics or provide additional information.

Adhesive layer (VC): The side in contact with the plastic film is coated with adhesive to ensure that the aluminum foil and plastic film can be firmly combined when heat-sealed.

Cold forming foil(Alu Alu Foil)

Cold stamped aluminum overcomes the shortcomings of conventional medicinal PVC hard sheets and PP hard sheets in moisture resistance, gas isolation, light protection, thermal stability, etc. It is a kind of product that isolates various gases and blocks light radiation. High-end pharmaceutical packaging blister-type materials can effectively extend the shelf life of pharmaceuticals and can be used as pharmaceutical packaging materials in extreme (high/low temperature) environments.

The 8021 aluminum foil, 8079 aluminum foil, etc. produced by Huawei Aluminum Industry have the advantages of high cupping value, high heat sealing strength, no holes, and good sealing performance.

Tropical blister foil

Tropical blister packaging (aluminum plastic aluminum) is equivalent to adding a cold stamped aluminum foil outer cover on the outside of the thermoformed plastic blister and PTP pharmaceutical packaging aluminum foil. The blister packaging still adopts vacuum molding and maintains the same blister size. The area around the blister is slightly wider so that the cold-formed tropical blister composite film can be heat-sealed with the thermoformed blister, making up for the traditional The problems of light-blocking and poor water-blocking properties in aluminum-plastic packaging are now being gradually accepted by the market.

AL/PE strip foil

AL/PE foil refers to a composite material composed of aluminum foil (Aluminum Foil) and polyethylene (PE) film. This material combines the respective advantages of aluminum foil and PE film and is widely used in the packaging industry, especially in situations where high barrier properties, moisture resistance, fragrance retention, light protection and other functions are required.

Specifically, due to its excellent barrier properties, the aluminum foil layer (AL) can effectively block oxygen, water vapor and light, maintain the stability of the products inside the package, extend the shelf life, and also prevent outside odors from entering the interior of the package and affecting product quality. . The polyethylene layer (PE) provides an inner layer that is flexible, tear-resistant, and has good heat-sealing properties, so that this composite material can be easily heat-sealed to make bags or laminated with other materials to make various composites. Packaging bags, such as food packaging bags, pharmaceutical packaging bags, etc.

Advantages of of Pharmaceutical packaging aluminum foil

Oxygen, light and odor barrier

Oxygen and light exposure can dramatically reduce the shelf life of many products. Don’t expose your pharmaceutical or food offerings to bacteria or oxygen, but seal them with foil packaging. This encourages stores to order more of your products.

Flexible sizing

Foil can be manufactured in virtually any dimension. It’s very easy to adjust the length, width and thickness of material, allowing you to customize your packaging to fit your items and your marketing strategy.

Bacteria-resistant material

Many packages allow bacteria and odors to pass through, even when sealed. Aluminum is a great barrier for both harmful bacteria and unpleasant odors. An odor barrier is useful if your product has a strong odor or can easily take on surrounding smells.

Cost-effective solution

Thanks to bulk manufacturing strategies, aluminum costs and the extended lifetime of foil-packaged products, this manufacturing solution allows you to cut down on your supply costs. Grow your business by lowering production costs when you choose foil as your packaging material.

Iconic colors and printing

Help your products stand out with expertly designed packages. Bags, pouches and other foil packaging can come in a wide range of colors and be printed with your chosen marketing material and product specifications. The shape, color and design of your aluminum packaging is entirely in your control, giving you the resources you need for eye-catching designs.
