Blister packs are useful for protecting products against external factors, such as humidity and contamination, for extended periods of time. They are commonly used as unit-dose packaging for pharmaceutical tablets, capsules or lozenges and can provide moisture and oxygen barrier protection for shelf life requirements, as well as a certain level of tamper resistance. Opaque blisters also protect light-sensitive products against UV rays. Blister packs may be used for packing physician samples of drug products, or for Over The Counter (OTC) products in the pharmacy.
At Legacy, we utilize high-speed thermoforming and cold forming equipment with online vision systems to ensure that each tablet or capsule is adequately encapsulated by the protective laminate. Our efficiency and experience in blister packaging is ideal for the following applications:
- Commercial production or product sampling
- Hospital unit dose
- Child resistant, tamper evident and peel/push
- Standard PVC/foil combinations to cold form high barrier laminate
- Online printing, cartoning, carding and other pack-out configurations
