Flexible Packaging

Printing on Flexible Packaging Materials

As medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers prepare to comply with FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) and various other track and trace/serialization initiatives, they are evaluating the ability of existing printing systems to produce the requisite bar codes and human readable text. Systems must be able to print high-quality codes on widely used flexible packaging materials, for instance, because manufacturers may be reluctant to qualify new materials simply to improve print quality. New printing approaches may therefore be in order.

Adding Color for Branding, Security

In an effort to enhance and protect brands, Rollprint Packaging Products Inc. has developed a color-changing sealant for heat-seal applications. The coextrusion-coated sealant can be applied to any thermally stable web such as polyester, nylon, and polypropylene or on any of Rollprint’s ClearFoil barrier structures.

Using the new sealant, medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers can color code products by type or size. Because the web remains transparent, package contents are visible through the color.
