PharmaGuard” is the name of the innovative blister concept for solid applications, which SÜDPACK MEDICA will showcase at Stand E1 at the Connect in Pharma trade fair and convention in Geneva in mid-June. This recyclable packaging concept for the pharmaceutical industry is characterized by outstanding material properties and serves as a building block for improving their eco-balance.

PharmaGuard sets new standards. The PP-based top and bottom webs are manufactured in a unique coextrusion process and, as a complete mono-material solution, they can be allocated to the existing material streams. Furthermore, this solution offers outstanding material efficiency and, thanks to the low density of PP, saves a considerable number of resources while maintaining high yields. According to a life cycle assessment conducted by Sphera, the new packaging concept is associated with a greatly reduced climate impact (in CO2-eq) as well as lower energy and water consumption compared to other popular blister solutions.

PharmaGuard not only convinces in terms of sustainability …

… but also when it comes to performance. Successful applications are virtually guaranteed thanks to the material’s excellent sealing performance, which ensures the highest possible packaging quality and safety in a highly efficient process. Thanks to its large processing window, the bottom web combines outstanding thermoforming properties with uniform demolding behavior. And despite the specific material features of PP films, SÜDPACK customers also benefit in terms of processing – these materials can be processed safely with only minor modifications to existing packaging lines.

For optimum product protection and maximum stability, the high-performance films can be equipped with different barrier and mechanical properties, depending on the product to be packaged. Another feature that sets SÜDPACK’s films apart from the competition is their excellent pharmacopeia-compliant water-vapor-barrier properties over the entire residual wall thickness. In addition, the SÜDPACK solution also stands out thanks to its very high transparency compared to the other PP-based blister film solutions currently on the market.

A recipe for success with real added value

Now SÜDPACK MEDICA and Liveo Research, the European market leader in pharma blister packaging, join forces to introduce the new PP blister innovation. Customers looking to switch to a more sustainable packaging concept can count on active support from the two film specialists. Getting in touch is easy: SÜDPACK MEDICA and Liveo Research will share a stand at Connect in Pharma and are committed to providing their customers with the best possible alternative for their individual requirements. This exclusive collaboration also allows synergies to be exploited – for example, in the area of consulting on applications and process technologies. Thanks to Liveo’s extensive manufacturing and market knowledge, its expertise also encompasses aspects such as the stability of specific drugs as well as risk management and the current regulatory framework.

Exciting presentation on industry trends and innovations

On June 15 between 2:00 and 2:30 p.m. in Theater 1 in the conference area, SÜDPACK MEDICA and Liveo Research will shed light on new trends for the pharmaceutical industry in a half-hour presentation entitled “Innovation Showcase – Innovative Primary Pharma Packaging”. The preferred sustainable alternatives include, in particular, mono-solutions and non-vinyl polymers. Experts from both companies will discuss the various options and provide some relevant details regarding the key factors for LCA studies.
