Frequently Asked Questions about Blister Pack Adhesives
What are blister packs?
Blisters are thermo-formed packages, often transparent, ensuring the presentation and protection of a product in its packaging. These packaging effectively guarantee the product’s quality and maximize its shelf life. Blister packs are typically used for pills, tablets, and capsules in the pharmaceutical industry.
What are the trends regarding this packaging?
The demand for blister packs has increased. This is due to the attractivity of the single-dose package, the excellent resistance of this packaging against moisture, its longer shelf life, and the controlled dosages. There are also new trends in the materials used to manufacture these blisters. The blister packs have long been made of PVC due to their low cost and ease of production. Today, an increasing number of retailers are seeking alternatives to PVC. PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) are good alternatives.
Which adhesives are used to make blisters for medical applications?
In medical applications, amorphous and high Tg-content materials are used as primers or heat-adhesive coatings for blister packs. Polyurethane adhesives are ideal for these packages. These adhesives are temperature resistant, offer strong adhesion, and have some flexibility to withstand deformation.
