Uflex Ltd. has released a fast tear strip foil, PET-based cold form blister, child-resistant and senior friendly foil for pharmaceutical companies.

For its fast tear strip foil, Uflex has developed 20-micron pinhole-free soft tempered foil. It contributes in providing higher yield gain of 36 percent, leading to tremendous cost savings for pharma companies. Offering excellent printing on matte finish with superior readability through multi-color reverse printing design, the foil is produced in house to impart easy tearability of the laminate without any effort. This foil conforms to all regulatory requirements of pharmaceutical products and also meets toxicology requirements.

The PET-based cold form blister is a revolutionary Alu-Alu packaging where special polyester film has replaced the conventional nylon and PVC while retaining aluminum. For this unique development, Uflex has also been granted a United States patent. Alu-Alu packaging provides sustainability and cost optimization.

Finally, Uflex’s child-resistant and senior friendly (CRSF) foil is available in two varities: push-through and peel-push. As the name suggests, it requires some amount of pressure for a child to open it. However, an adult or senior can open it easily. This protects unintentional damage to the foil, which is common with conventional blister foils.
