Amcor's Formpack® Ultra is a new cold-form blister for pharmaceutical products. The material can be elongated more than standard cold form solutions, resulting in cavities that can be drawn deeper and with sharper wall angles than ever before. This gives pharmaceutical companies two options: 1) design a smaller blister card, or 2) add more cavities without increasing the blister card size. Formpack® Ultra's superior elongation is possible thanks to 'best in class' selection of raw materials, advanced manufacturing processes and extensive quality control.
Louis Lindenberg, global packaging sustainability director for Unilever, explained, "Not only is there a significant saving in material usage, but the additional benefits in terms of production, logistics and storage make it a truly world class example of resource efficiency."
Commenting on the award, Andrea Della Torre, R&D director at Amcor Flexibles, says, "Formpack® Ultra supports a more responsible packaging use across the value chain and lowers the total cost of goods for pharmaceutical companies. Its reduced size also meets patients' needs for smaller, more discreet and convenient blister packs."
