Tekni-Films has launched a new thermoformable film laminate that it claims can be used to make the highest-barrier clear blister film available on the market.
The Tekni-Plex subsidiary said the new product is made using 4 mil (100 micron) PCTFE in either the Aclar or Vaposhield types of barrier film. It may be laminated to any standard thermoformable film, such as PVC, PP, Barex oxygen barrier film, or PETG.
Tekni-Films, which specialises in supplying blister films for pharmaceutical, over-the-counter (OTC) and nutritional products, said the lamination has applications where ultra high barrier qualities and clarity are needed in a blister or packaging application.
More information on the new laminate, including sample data sheets for PVC-based 4 mil high barrier films, are available on Tekni-Films' website .
