Push Packs save material and costs
As far as the eco-balance is concerned, the packaging forms in the Push Pack product family have inherent advantages over conventional blister packs. This is due to the significantly lower material consumption, especially in direct comparison with Al/Al blisters. The Push Pack foil exhibits the same barrier properties as blister foil but is much thinner and lighter. The heat-sealing machines in Romaco Siebler’s HM 1 series process this ultra-thin primary packaging foil into air, light and moisture-tight push-through strips. The QuickSeal technology was developed by Siebler specifically for handling laminates with an aluminium foil thickness of between 9 µm and 25 µm. Push Packs are consequently less than half the weight of Al/Al blisters. The material saving is additionally reflected in the costs: Push Packs are up to 60 percent cheaper than Al/Al blisters.
Regardless of whether the standard, barrier or eco version of the Push Packs is chosen, all packaging forms are made from PVC-free material. Since the relatively small cavities in the Push Packs also mean smaller air pockets, the medicines have a longer shelf life. Romaco can supply the push-through sealed strips in various geometries and designs on request. All Push Packs have a large surface that can be printed on both sides. Siebler heat-sealing machines pack between 800 and 7000 tablets per minute depending on requirements.
