Information

At the CPHI Shanghai exhibition last year, I met a professor from the Department of Chemistry of Sichuan University who wanted to introduce us a granular glue that can be heat-sealed with PP material (granular at room temperature, it melts after heating). There are still many PP glues on the market, mainly for heat sealing with PP containers. And because the material of PP is environmentally friendly and recyclable, it has become more popular than ever in the trend of green environmental protection in recent years, and its application in the food industry is also more extensive.

 

 

The field that this professor wants to apply is the pharmaceutical packaging material industry. He wants to replace the PVC material we are currently using for tablet and capsule packaging with PP material, and the corresponding heat-sealing glue for sealing aluminum foil should also be replaced with Corresponding to glue that can be heat-sealed with PP material. From an academic point of view, there is no problem at all, and it meets environmental protection standards. The number of PVC materials we use in the pharmaceutical packaging material industry every year is staggering. Some studies indicate that by 2025, the global consumption of PVC will reach nearly 60 million tons.

 

 

Since the high consumption of PVC and the environmental protection performance of PP have formed such a sharp contrast, is this feasible in actual use?

 

The huge application of PVC materials in the pharmaceutical packaging industry is largely due to the properties of the materials themselves. First of all, PVC materials are cheap and easy to obtain. In today's soaring prices, the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry has been under national control, maintaining price stability and lowering the prices of some high-priced drugs. For this reason, pharmaceutical companies will also strictly control the cost of their packaging materials. The price of PP material and its corresponding glue price are much higher than the price of PVC on the market now.

Secondly, PVC material can be made into rigid plastic, and its blister and brewing ability is much better than that of PP material. For two materials of the same thickness, PP is prone to bubble breakage after blister.

 

 

However, for some composite materials, such as cold-stamped aluminum, some manufacturers have replaced PVC with PP for material improvements. Improved from the original nylon/aluminum/PVC to nylon/aluminum/PP. However, this material has not been widely accepted and applied by manufacturers, so the demand for the material is still extremely low and cannot be put into mass production, because the machinery of the pharmaceutical factory also needs to be modified accordingly.

 

 

To sum up, although the upgrading of materials will conform to the needs and changes of the times, it takes a long period of thinking education and product performance improvement to completely replace PVC materials from the industry.

Medications are essential in our daily lives, and their quality and safety often depend on the packaging materials used. Pharmaceutical cold aluminum foil, a new type of drug packaging material, offers unique advantages for efficiently storing medications, making it an ideal choice for long-term preservation. Traditional drug packaging materials, such as plastic bottles, typically only meet basic packaging needs and pose several issues regarding drug safety and shelf life. The advent of pharmaceutical cold aluminum foil provides a new solution in the pharmaceutical packaging field, leading to widespread application. The advantages of pharmaceutical cold aluminum foil are mainly reflected in the following four aspects.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is a synthetic plastic made from vinyl chloride monomers through polymerization reactions. It is the third largest synthetic polymer plastic in the world (after polyethylene and polypropylene) and can be traced back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. PVC gradually became an important material in various fields. Among them, medicinal PVC hard sheets are a common pharmaceutical packaging material, with good sealing, moisture resistance, and corrosion resistance.
The importance of pharmaceutical packaging materials in the pharmaceutical packaging market is undeniable. Pharmaceutical packaging plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety, efficacy, and quality of pharmaceutical products. The packaging market in the pharmaceutical industry is continuously evolving to meet the changing needs and regulations.
The pharmaceutical packaging materials play a crucial role in ensuring the quality and safety of drugs, among which pharmaceutical aluminum foil, as a widely used packaging material, has numerous remarkable characteristics and advantages. It possesses good moisture resistance, airtightness, and sealability.
In the field of medicine, blister packs are a common form of drug packaging. However, have you noticed that some blister packs have an additional protective layer? This protective layer is usually made of tropical aluminum, and its presence is not accidental but holds significant importance and value.
The content of the standards for pharmaceutical packaging materials products is to ensure that the packaging materials meet a series of regulations and requirements for pharmaceutical packaging needs. These standards aim to safeguard the safety, stability, effectiveness, and compliance of pharmaceutical packaging materials, ensuring that drugs are not contaminated or deteriorated during transportation, storage, and use. The specific content of the standards for pharmaceutical packaging materials products includes:
Cold forming and thermoforming are not just different in terms of temperature. In the blister packaging manufacturing process, they are two common production methods with significant differences in processes, material selection, product performance, and application areas.
Pharmaceutical aluminum foil packaging materials play a crucial role in the pharmaceutical industry, as they can effectively protect drugs and extend their shelf life. However, many people have doubts about whether pharmaceutical aluminum foil packaging materials have an expiration date. In fact, aluminum foil itself usually does not have a specific shelf life, but in practical use, we still need to pay attention to and control its shelf life to some extent.
PTP (Press Through Packaging) blister foils are a type of packaging used extensively in the pharmaceutical industry to protect and preserve medications.
Pharmaceutical packaging materials refer to materials used to meet the requirements of packaging containers, packaging decoration, packaging printing, packaging transportation, etc. It includes main packaging materials such as metal, plastic, glass, ceramics, paper, bamboo, wild mushrooms, natural fibers, chemical fibers, composite materials, as well as auxiliary materials such as coatings, adhesives, straps, decorations, and printing materials.
As a pharmaceutical manufacturer, choosing the right pharmaceutical packaging materials is crucial because packaging not only directly relates to the quality and stability of the product, but also to the health and safety of consumers. So, let me introduce some guidelines for choosing suitable pharmaceutical packaging materials.
The field of pharmaceutical packaging has been constantly pursuing safer and more effective packaging materials. As a new type of packaging material, strip foil has broad application prospects and continued development trends.
