Fast Tear Strip Foil: Conventionally, pharma companies have been using 30- and 40-micron soft tempered Strip Foil pack laminate. Uflex developed a 20-micron pin-hole free soft tempered foil. It contributes to providing higher yield gain of 36%. Fast Tear Strip Foil is produced in-house to impart easy tear-ability of the laminate without any effort. Fast Tear Strip Foil maintains the bursting pressure of the pocket with reduced foil thickness. The value addition of holography solution with Latentogram imparts brand protection of the pack and maintains the same barrier properties when compared to that of conventional strip pack laminate. This foil conforms to all regulatory requirements of pharmaceutical products and also meets toxicology requirements.
PET-based Cold Form Blister: In the conventional Cold Form Laminate, there are three layers – nylon, aluminum and PVC. Uflex developed Alu-Alu packaging where a special polyester film has replaced the conventional nylon and PVC while retaining aluminum, making it an indigenous product since both PVC and BON have to be imported from other countries. Uflex was granted a U.S. Patent recently for this.
Child Resistant & Senior Friendly (CRSF) Foil: The Child Resistant & Senior Friendly (CRSF) Foils, developed by Uflex, are available in two types: Push-Through and Peel-Push. As the name suggests, it requires some amount of pressure for a child to open it. However an adult or senior can open it easily. This protects unintentional damage to the foil which is common with conventional blister foils which get easily tampered during handling affecting the formulation. CRSF Foils are also commonly used in regulated markets.
Brand Identity and Protection Solutions: Pharma brands deal with counterfeiting and medication non-adherence in the case of chronic therapies. Considering the literacy levels and linguistic diversity of India, Uflex offers tailor-made Consumer Discernible Packaging Solutions which provide unique brand identity and top-of-mind medication adherence communication along with highly specialized brand protection packaging technologies.
“Uflex approach to business is to grow and develop consumer-friendly products," Uflex Ltd. Executive Director Amitava Ray said. "This is why we ceaselessly work towards delivering an amalgamation of un-interrupted supplies, quality, service and innovation that are expected in the pharma packaging business.
After the display of these products at CPHI, they have been launched for Indian pharma markets.
