Introduction to Product

Blister pack is referred to the different types of pre-formed plastic packaging that are used to package different types of small consumer goods, food, and pharmaceuticals. The primary component of the pack is consisting of a cavity or pocket made from a formable web, usually a thermoformed plastic and having a backing of paperboard or a lidding seal of aluminum foils or plastic. They are convenient for protecting products against external factors such as humidity and contamination for an extended period. Opaque blisters are useful to protect light-sensitive products from UV-rays. Many blister packaging machines use heat and pressure to form the cavity or pocket from a roll or sheet of plastic. This kind of packaging safeguards the medicines and small medical devices from moisture, odor, oxygen, and also increases their lifespan. The blister packaging market is anticipated to witness high growth owing to factors such as an increase in middle-class population, growth in demand from the healthcare sector, and the popularity of using convenient packaging.
