Pharmaceutical Labelling and Foils
Pharmaceutical labeling is an area of the industry in which a label’s function – its role in identifying and explaining what a product is and does – is of the utmost importance. Regulations must be adhered to, because a text slip-up in dosing instructions, expiration dates, or ingredient lists could amount to dire consequences. End users of these products trust that their medicines are labeled accurately, and they also trust that the integrity of the package has not been comprised. Again, dire consequences.
High-quality medicines need packaging in which they are safely protected from environmental influences, oxygen and moisture. It is only in this way that the ingredients retain their effects which they are to develop when ingested.
Blister packs are often used for medicines in the pharmaceutical industry. These consist of the so-called push-through Blister (or shorter “Blister”), a moulded plastic with cavities for the individual tablets, and a push-through closure made of aluminium foil or pharmaceutical foils, which is called blister film or lid film. As a result, capsules and tablets are hygienically clean and protected. The unrivaled barrier properties of aluminium foil/ pharmaceutical foil packaging makes it impenetrable to moisture, aromas, oxygen and other gases, as well as micro-organisms and light. Sensitive products are therefore kept in perfect condition for long periods.
