Constantia Flexibles released its new packaging system, the Flexible Blister, which can be incorporated into existing production while offering a portable system for packaging.

The flexible blister requires no changes to existing production equipment. Roberto Martín, head of innovation laminates for Constantia Flexibles, told us: “No change in the current packaging lines are required because of the [drop-in] technology, which makes this possible, is already incorporated in the laminate.”

Constantia uses conventional strip packaging equipment for the solution; however, it is able to have similar barrier protections to that of traditional blister packaging, despite having flexible film on both sides.

Flexible Blister is suitable for oral dosage pharmaceuticals, for both over-the-counter and prescription medicines, and can accommodate various specifications for sizes and shapes. Constantia states that the packaging solutions incorporates anti-counterfeiting measures as well.

Martín explained that the idea for the product came after engineers at Constantia Flexible’s Spain-based product excellence center researched ways to make unit-dose packaging more user-friendly and participants at a workshop shared “must-have features”​ for a portable pack.

“Giving our engineers the freedom to develop fresh ideas and customers a forum to share their visions is the bedrock of that process. This is exactly how the idea to improve on the classic blister pack was born,”​ Martín added.

Constantia can apply consumer information to the packaging either affixed or printed on the strip packaging – eliminating the need for consumers to carry the cardboard carton that usually has the consumer information affixed to it.
