Pouches are a standard packaging format in the healthcare industry, but some pouches are easy to break or puncture, which can result in significant risk for patients. Dennis Siepmann, Business Development Manager at Actega, says that using a film made with ProvaMed, a product portfolio from Actega, can significantly increase pouch strength and elongation.
SteriPack will highlight its new vented pouches at Booth 1450 at the upcoming Medical Design & Manufacturing West Show February 11–13 in Anaheim, CA. PeelVent is a vented chevron peelable pouch, and TearVent is a vented linear tear pouch, and both are offered as alternatives to standard chevron peel and linear tear pouches with film to film and a breathable vent.
