PVC/PVDC For Medicine Blister Pack

What is pvc blister?

Pharmaceutical packaging has a layer of the most basic material is PVC,PVC bubble cover layer for pharmaceutical dosage form to provide structural rigidity and physical protection, prevent moisture oxygen into the bubble cover.The main advantages of PVC are its low cost and ease of thermal molding. In the case of blister packaging, PVC sheet material does not contain any plasticizer and is sometimes called rigid PVC or PVDC.

The thickness of PVC sheet is usually between 200µ and 300µ, depending on the cavity size and shape. Most PVC sheets used for medicinal blister covers are 250µ or 0.250 mm thick.

In order to overcome the lack of barrier performance of PVC film, it can be coated with PVDC or laminated PCTFE to increase the protection performance. Pvc-based multilayer blister films are commonly used in pharmaceutical blister packaging where PVC serves as a thermoforming framework for the structure. Better packaging of drugs.

Pharmaceutical Pvc Overview:

Medicine pvc can be used to make tablets, capsules, and medicine packaging. It has a strong barrier to water, oxygen, and ultraviolet radiation, and then plays a role in protecting medicinal products. It is especially suitable for drugs with high sensitivity range and drugs with strong hygroscopicity or light-sensitive.

Pharma Pvdc Overview:

PVDC is also a very popular and commonly used pharmaceutical packaging material, also known as PVC composite film. It is the most commonly used blister packaging material in pharmaceutical packaging. About 67% of blister packaging use PVDC composite film. PVDC composite film is a material with the best barrier properties and has an excellent barrier effect on air, moisture, and fine particles. It can be used under high temperature and high humidity conditions, and other properties are similar to PVD, such as good compatibility, ease to form and seal, and low price.

Pharma Alu Pvc/Pvdc Packaging Prospects

With the increase in the use of pharmaceutical products, the demand for aluminum/aluminum foil in the pharmaceutical industry is increasing, because the pharmaceutical packaging materials made of PVC/PVDC have the highest barrier to moisture, oxygen, other gases, and ultraviolet rays. Under ICH conditions It keeps the barrier performance under the lower part, and it ensures easy packaging due to its unique structure. Its tighter blister structure allows higher blister density to reduce blister size and material usage, saving costs.

Pvc/Pvdc Aluminium Pharmaceutical Packaging Produce Guarantee

All medicinal packaging products (polyester/aluminum/polyethylene medicinal composite film) are produced in the purification workshop, and the PE bags used for product packaging are fully monitored by professional production personnel. A clean environment can maintain the same production cost while ensuring stable product quality.

Pvc/Pvdc Pharma Packaging Selection Considerations

The choice of packaging materials for medicinal packaging, the nature of the main medicines (moisture, oxidation, fragrance retention, etc.), and the shelf-life requirements are determined. It should be noted that this is a very prudent choice. It is necessary to consider both the quality of the drug and the development and cost of the company. It is recommended to determine the choice of packaging materials with a competent packaging material factory or packaging material experts. Huawei Aluminum is a company A supplier with more than ten years of aluminum foil manufacturing experience.

The basic principle of selection: general medicines, PVC medicinal tablets can be used if the requirements for moisture resistance are not high. PVC/PVDC or PVC/PE/PVDC composite sheets can be used for medicines that require moisture resistance and oxidation resistance or require a long shelf life. PVC/PE composite tablets can be used for oral liquid and suppository medicines.
