Advanced moisture protection for flexibles
Dessiflex sachet laminates include an active sealing layer that absorbs moisture trapped into the package or coming from cross-diffusion through the seals. It is ideal to protect very moisture sensitive products and devices and extend product shelf life. It can be applied to sachets, strip packs, stick packs and flow wraps. In this pack desiccant particles are integrated into the sealing layer using a solventless coextrusion coating process. After the filling process, residual humidity can still persist within the packaging headspace, moisture can also penetrate through the seal edges. To counter these effects, desiccant particles within the sealing layer will irreversibly absorb moisture from headspace and prevent ingress through the seal edges. The active desiccant agent improves the protection of the active ingredient, whether it is extremely sensitive to humidity or exposed to extreme climate conditions. There is no direct contact with the product: desiccant particles are isolated from the packaged product by the sealing layer Dessiflex flow packs eliminate the need to include silica gel sachets in the blister overwraps . Benefits *Enhanced protection of active ingredients *Significant product shelf life extension *Increased product and patient safety by eliminating the use of external dessicant into the package *Simplification of the packaging process *Reduction of pack size.
