Tekni-Films: Barrier-coated thermoformable film

SBC 240
Tekni-Films introduces SBC 240, a super barrier-coated (SBC) thermoformable film for pharmaceutical blister packs.

Tekni-Films SBC 240 is being positioned as a performance and improved-cost alternative for 4- and 6-mil PCTFE and cold formed foil for thermoformable blister applications. The triplex structure is ideal for applications such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, probiotics and other related products.

In addition to its desirable clear properties, SBC 240 doesn’t require stiffening ribs, which can be used to improve the ability of PCTFE to lie flat, nor the oversized blister wells created by cold forming. This means that pharmaceutical companies can use a smaller blister card to contain the same number of tablets or capsules, or increase the count on a same-sized card. The end result is material cost savings all the way through the packaging process, including cartons and cases, as well as improved production efficiencies.
