Aluminium is used in pharmaceutical packaging thanks to its special properties. This material creates a barrier to protect product from contaminations – light, oxygen and moisture – ensuring longer shelf life and higher security to patients.
IPS pharmaceutical packaging
IPS Industrial Packaging Solution manufactures specific aluminium foil for blister packaging. In particular our society developed a specific laminated foil composed of OPA/AL/Heat Sealing lacquer (Oriented Polyamide – Aluminium – Heat Sealing lacquer), to manufacture tropical cold form with even higher protection against temperature and moisture. Pharmaceutical foil is manufactured in a clean room with fully aseptic operational conditions. For laminated products a thermal chamber ensures the reticulation of the glue, in order to guarantee perfect adhesion properties.
