Medical and Pharmaceutical Packaging

All Flex has developed a range of materials especially for the packaging of single use, disposable medical devices and pharmaceutical products. Materials are available for applications where sterilisation is by steam, ethylene oxide, irradiation and plasma.

Typical end use applications include, for example, pouches for dentists and hospitals, rollstock applications for medical dressings, kits, syringes and catheters and the technically demanding areas of intravenous solutions. Also barrier foil laminates for moisture and light sensitive products such as impregnated dressings, wipes and pharmaceutical formulations.

Our specifications comply with the most stringent healthcare packaging regulations.

Weld and peel open seal layers are available for partnering Tyvek® and papers for both two and three dimensional packages.

Printing is available up to eight colours, inclusive of steam and ethylene oxide indicator inks. It is also possible to use tinted films for product differentiation.

As an innovative company we respond to development requests - laminates such as Opa/Opa/Pe for strength, lightweight Pet/Pe with slip for cost-saving flowrap applications and variable film gauges for puncture resistance.
