(Summary description)Pharmaceutical PTP foils are generally "hard" aluminum. His thickness requirements, contained in the U.S. and global markets, are historically different. In the US, most foils are around 25 microns thick, or 25.4 µm to be precise. In Europe, however, a thickness of 20.0 µm is more common and has a greater length advantage for the same weight of raw material. In recent years, countries have trended towards thinner 20.0 µm aluminium foils regardless of the market. And today, the vast majority of aluminum foils are coated with "universal" heat seal lacquers to ensure a good seal.

The development of PTP aluminum foil

Pharmaceutical PTP foils are generally "hard" aluminum. His thickness requirements, contained in the U.S. and global markets, are historically different. In the US, most foils are around 25 microns thick, or 25.4 µm to be precise. In Europe, however, a thickness of 20.0 µm is more common and has a greater length advantage for the same weight of raw material. In recent years, countries have trended towards thinner 20.0 µm aluminium foils regardless of the market. And today, the vast majority of aluminum foils are coated with "universal" heat seal lacquers to ensure a good seal.

Early development
Alcan Packaging SINGEN is the first company in the world to produce rigid aluminium foils that are hermetically sealed to uPVC films. The most critical factor for medicinal aluminum foil at the time was allowing oral solid dose tablets to be easily squeezed through the foil.

So for early aluminum foil products, the challenges revolved around developing foils with good tear properties - so that drug tablets could easily "push" out of the foil; and good sealing properties - to achieve the gas needed for product integrity hermetically sealed.

Material properties
The characteristics of aluminum foil for packaging are "hard" or "soft". Soft foils receive additional annealing and any lubricants used during rolling will evaporate.

The application of the protective paint takes place in the first process. Drying (solvent removal) is carried out at high temperature and airflow. The drying heat and airflow also help remove rolling oil from the inside of the material.

Heat seal painting is carried out in the second process. The varnish contains resins that bind the remaining rolling oil and is characterized by good adhesion to the surface. Heat-sealing varnishes are also chosen because of their sensitivity to humidity.

Applications
The development of sealing aluminum foil has evolved into three main forms of blister packaging:

Push-Through (PTP): Used to seal aluminum foil lids to a variety of formable films with the following general structures:
Pre-painted –> Aluminium (hard or soft tempered) –> Heat Seal Coating (HSC)

Peelable: Used to seal foil lids to formable films (usually PVC or PP) with one of the following structures:
Paper –> PET –> Soft Aluminum –> HSC
PET –> Soft Aluminum –> HSC
Paper -> Soft Aluminum -> HSC

Peel/Push: Used to seal foil lids to formable films (usually PVC or PP) with one of the following constructions:
Paper –> PET –> Special Adhesives –> Soft Aluminum –> HSC
PET –> Special Adhesives –> Soft Aluminum –> HSC

Future trends
As the market evolves, lidding films differ in:

1. Type of opening
2. Child protection type
3. Printability (pre-print or online printing)

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.
