Oracle Packaging is now offering a high-barrier pouchstock laminate tailored to the specific challenges of over-the-counter effervescent products. Ideal for packaging coarse, often powdery, effervescent tablets, company officials say the laminate provides protection against moisture and oxygen for a variety of product formats, shapes and sizes.
A durable sealant layer used in the laminate provides hot-tack and hermetic seals at relatively low seal temperatures — an important feature for packaging products that tend to create a powdery residue. The pouching materials are comprised of layers of either ink or lacquer, and a paper/PE/aluminum foil/sealant.
Offering high levels of puncture resistance, machinability and seal integrity, Oracle Packaging’s effervescent tablet laminates are available in 10 colors for printed and unprinted rolls. They are also available in low- or high-gloss materials, and the pouchstock can be printed on both sides.
"Oracle Packaging has extensive experience with developing and manufacturing flexible packaging solutions for effervescent products,” says Andrew Starr, director of Oracle Packaging. “Our specifications are built to address the unique needs of these products, specifically shape, fragility and moisture sensitivity. You can rest assured that Oracle has a product that meets your needs."
