Alu Alu foil is used in many advanced drug packaging in the market. However, among some common drugs, there are also many drugs that are packaged in conventional blister packaging. Since alu Alu foil and blister packaging are used in many drugs, Which one is better for packaging medicine.

Conventional blister blister packaging is the most common type of drug packaging for capsules and tablet blisters, with aluminum cover foil on one side and PVC film (plastic) or other structure of PVC film (laminate) on the other side, such as PVC /PVDC.

Because cold aluminum is a three-layer structure with strong insulation, its water vapor transmittance at 38°C/90%RH (relative humidity) is almost 0 g/m2/ day, while the WVTR of standard PVC film under the same atmospheric conditions is 3.1g/m2/ day.

The advantages of aLu alu foil are:

Suitable for ultraviolet sensitive, highly hygroscopic or additional heat and cold protection drugs.

It has very high mechanical tear resistance and puncture resistance.

It provides long-term resistance to stratification the downside is that.
