Klocker Introduces Ultra-High Barrier Aclar Film
Published: October 17th, 2011
Klockner Pentaplast’s Pentapharm film product line has been extended to include Pentapharm ACLAR PA600/02 barrier films for pharmaceutical packaging applications. Pentapharm ACLAR PA600/02 film is a two-layer (PVC/ACLAR) laminated film that provides the highest moisture barrier available in the Pentapharm ACLAR product line.
Pentapharm ACLAR PA600/02 films are made with Honeywell’s 152-micron ACLAR
UltRx6000, which is 50% thicker than the current maximum gauge ACLAR films available in the marketplace today, for a 50% increase in moisture barrier.
Ideal for solid oral-dose packaging, powders, ethical drugs, OTC, generics, physician samples, veterinary medicine, and nutraceuticals that require ultra, ultra-high moisture barrier, Pentapharm ACLAR PA600/02 films are a cost-effective solution as these films allow for small footprint packages, which require less material and total cost per
package as compared to other packages in the non-polymer ultra-high barrier range, the company said in a statement.
Pentapharm ACLAR 600/02 films are transparent, non-yellowing, and offer excellent machinability on existing standard form/fill/seal packaging lines and tooling. With rigid vinyl as the product contact layer, Pentapharm ACLAR 600/02 films offer sealability to common vinyl-compatible lidstocks, the company said.
“Pentapharm ACLAR 600/02 films were developed in response to customers’ needs for an ultra, ultra-high moisture barrier pharmaceutical film. The expansion of our pharmaceutical film range to include this film, along with our existing Pentapharm films, continues to provide our customers with the broadest available selection of barrier films in the industry,” said Daniel Stagnaro, Pharmaceutical Films Business Manager, Klöckner Pentaplast/Americas.
Pentapharm ACLAR films are offered globally and manufactured throughout the worldwide network of Klöckner Pentaplast production facilities.
