A wide range of high-performance films for manufacturing pouch packaging as well as innovative and recyclable material structures for thermoformed packaging for diverse requirements: SÜDPACK Medica will present an attractive product and service portfolio at the Pharmapack on Stand J46 in Hall 7.2. The company’s stated aim is: performance and sustainability – intelligently combined. For years, it has been a valued partner to the global medical technology, pharmaceutical, and diagnostic industry. It will demonstrate its expertise above all in recyclable packaging solutions in an informative series of talks on the morning of the trade show’s opening day.
The development of sustainable film solutions is amongst the key strategic initiatives for the SÜDPACK Group. Its groundbreaking innovations include a PP-based thermoforming film for manufacturing blister packaging. This development already attracted huge interest from trade visitors at the last two trade shows in 2022. These films exceed normal market standards with regard to barrier effect and efficiency. The material offers optimum barrier properties and is characterized by good processability on existing packaging lines.
SÜDPACK Medica’s second focus at the trade show is on various solutions for the production of pouch packaging. The high-barrier three-side sealed pouches, high-performance flow-pack films and films for manufacturing stick packs and sachets provide exceptionally good sealing and peelability as well as excellent processability in highly automated processes. Thanks to their very good barrier and mechanical properties, they reliably protect packaged products from external influences – and with various material combinations and integrated functionalities, they offer maximum performance and convenience.
One highlight of the trade show presentation will be a PLA film which is an alternative to cellulose-based films used for sterile packaging, such as cellophane or comparable films with high water vapor permeability. The material is based on renewable raw materials and can be composted industrially in accordance with DIN EN 13432. Designed in particular as a sterile barrier system for demanding diagnostic flow pack applications, the film features good mechanical properties as well as excellent oxygen and water vapor permeability. Even gamma sterilization is possible without visual impairments.
SÜDPACK also expects high interest from trade visitors in its coextruded flexible and rigid films. The top and bottom webs for manufacturing thermoformed packaging are suitable for automated forming, filling, and sealing processes. They are perfectly matched to each other and offer versatile forming and processing. Depending on requirements, they can be enhanced with various barriers, functionalities, and tints. They seal onto top webs made of plastic or medical paper such as Tyvek.
Furthermore, in Paris SÜDPACK will present a wide spectrum of lidding films for safe, hermetic closure of the packaging solutions. The range covers everything from custom solutions with special barrier properties to composites with special papers or Tyvek.
Additionally, SÜDPACK will provide informative insights into “Sustainable material structures for packaging pharmaceuticals and medical products” in a 30-minute presentation on February 1, 2023. The main focus is on two burning questions: What are the benefits of recyclable high-performance films such as PP-based mono-materials, and what applications are they suitable for? To help answer these questions, the presentation will also inform the audience about various LCA studies which can be applied to determine and evaluate the environmental impacts of different packaging solutions along the entire value creation chain.
