Predictive Modeling Software facilitates blister design.

October 4, 2013

Suited for pharmaceutical industry, Pentapharm® BlisterPro® lets users explore effects of tool geometry, film types, and process conditions as well as predict protective barrier properties of final package without running line trials. Solution expedites package development cycle by combining finite element analysis simulations with actual tool design, fabrication, and package production. After designs are created and analyzed, they are directly transmitted to CNC machine for tool fabrication. Read More

Light Medical Packaging Films help meet sustainability goals.

November 15, 2012

Intended for medical-device packaging, Pentamed® light foamed high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) films enable material reduction by reducing package weight while maintaining physical properties comparable to standard materials. Products offer formability and processability compatible with standard thermoforming and form/fill/seal equipment and are sealable to range of lid stocks. Able to be EtO, gamma, and E-beam sterilized, films can be used for trays, containers, clamshells, and liners. Read More

Co-Polyester Films suit medical device packaging applications.

July 29, 2011

Meeting needs of medical form-fill-seal and tray applications, Pentamed® MD-EK10R00 Films protect sterilized contents against damage and breach of sterile barriers. High glass-transition temperature allows for heat resistance that slows aging while speeding validation and sterilization. Sterilization chamber temperatures are not limited by package so there is minimized risk of warping and sticking. For every 10°C increase in EtO chamber temperature, sterilization time can be cut in half. Read More
