What are the specifications and types of medicinal aluminum foil?
Medicinal aluminum foil, also known as medicinal foil, is an aluminum foil specially used for packaging pharmaceutical products such as tablets, capsules, and powders. Aluminum foil, a pharmaceutical packaging material, can effectively protect against the influence of external factors, better ensure product integrity and provide anti-tampering functions.
The specifications and types of pharmaceutical aluminum foil may vary depending on the specific requirements of the pharmaceutical product.
Pharmaceutical aluminum foil is typically available in various thicknesses, ranging from 0.02 mm to 0.04 mm (20-60 microns). The choice of thickness depends on factors such as the product’s sensitivity to moisture, light and oxygen.
Alloy: Aluminum foil is usually made of high-purity aluminum, common choices are 8011, 8021, 8079, 1235 and other alloys. These alloys have excellent barrier properties and are suitable for direct contact with drugs.
|1235 aluminum foil||1235 aluminum foil for pharmaceutical is pure aluminum of the 1000 series aluminum alloy. It has good corrosion resistance and barrier properties, so it can also be used as a raw material for the production of pharmaceutical packaging.|
|8011 aluminum foil||8011 aluminum foil for pharmaceutical is a high-purity aluminum alloy with a minimum aluminum content of 99%. It has excellent moisture-proof, light-proof and gas-proof barrier properties and is a common choice for pharmaceutical packaging.|
|8021 aluminum foil||8021 aluminum foil for pharmaceutical Similar to 8011, 8021 is a high-purity aluminum alloy with a minimum aluminum content of 99%. It has good strength and ductility, is easy to process and form, and provides excellent moisture resistance.|
|8079 aluminum foil||8079 aluminum foil for pharmaceutical Like other pharmaceutical grade aluminum foil, 8079 is a high purity alloy with a minimum aluminum content of 99%. 8079 can be heat-sealable to create a secure and tamper-evident seal, ensuring the integrity of the drug product.|
Unprinted Aluminum Foil: Unprinted aluminum foil is a plain aluminum foil without any printing or labels on the surface. It is commonly used in solid dosage form pharmaceutical products.
Printed Foil: Printed foil includes basic product information, branding and possible dosage instructions. This type of foil is used for packaging that requires labeling and branding.
Blister foil: Blister foil is a special type of pharmaceutical aluminum foil used for blister packaging of tablets and capsules. It usually has a heat-sealable layer on one side to seal the product in the blister cavity. It can also be printed or unprinted.
Pharmaceutical aluminum foil surface treatment specifications
Surface Treatment: Some pharmaceutical aluminum foils may have special surface treatments or coatings to enhance barrier properties. These treatments can include heat-seal varnishes, print-receptive coatings, or protective layers to prevent interactions with the drug product.
Color: Pharmaceutical aluminum foil is usually silver, but it can come in a variety of colors or be printed in color to differentiate the product or for branding purposes.
Packaging form: Medicinal aluminum foil comes in a variety of packaging forms, including blister packaging, strip packaging, and sachet packaging.
The specific choice of pharmaceutical aluminum foil depends on the requirements of the drug and the selection of the most appropriate foil type to ensure safety and effectiveness.
