Blister laminate for light- and moisture-sensitive medications

Article-Blister laminate for light- and moisture-sensitive medications

The Cold Form™ 4000 blister laminate is suitable for light- and moisture-sensitive medications due to its 45-micron, heavy-gauge foil sandwiched between PVC film on the sealant side and a 60-micron nylon film on the other. Cold Form is said to offer two times the dent-resistance of other cold-formable blister materials due to an additional layer of a 60-micron PVC laminated to the nylon exterior. The co. reports that the extra layer greatly enhances the material's rigidity, practically eliminating indentations and impressions that could occur through typical shipping and handling. In addition, the exterior film layer of the laminate can be reverse-printed or surface-printed to display up to 8 colors, for enhanced product branding.
