Wayne, Pa. (April 13, 2017) — The latest in flexible packaging materials for pharmaceutical applications and an extensive line of closure liners for a wide variety of products will be featured by Tekni-Plex companies at Interpack, May  4-10, Dusseldorf, Germany, Hall 7, level 1 / C25.

Tekni-Films will be discussing its Flexapharm® super-barrier coated (SBC) thermoformable, polyvinylidene chloride (PVdC) blister film line which offers ultra-high moisture and oxygen barrier and economic attributes for pharmaceutical applications.  Flexapharm® SBC is an alternative to cold formed foil or PCTFE based blisters for a wide range of tablets and capsules. It is created by applying a PVdC barrier coating to a film structure typically made from layers of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and/or polyethylene. Multiple layers can be applied depending on the desired barrier attributes of the specific application. The technology offers a greater degree of customization and flexibility compared to laminated structures.
