September 23, 2021 – Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging will unveil a new 27mm desiccant stopper at Pharmapack 2021.
A key benefit is that the new stopper is perceived as very easy to open, a common problem cited by many patients who sometimes struggle to open cylindrical tubes of tablets and medication.
Furthermore, the stopper uses fewer raw materials and is therefore lightweight. The new used polymers are sourced from renewable-focused suppliers, helping to reduce the carbon footprints of those that use them.
This represents a key step for Airnov as it seeks to bring more sustainable solutions to the market.
Stéphane Rault, Global Product Manager, Airnov, commented: “This new stopper gives advantages to improve the easy opening of packaging by patients and shows how Airnov continues to engage more in the development of sustainable solutions, which is helping to reduce our impact on the planet.
“Most importantly, this product represents an answer to our customers’ needs and has been developed based on feedback we have received from them.”
The new lightweight, sustainable and practical features do not compromise the core function of the stopper, which is to protect the moisture sensitive nutraceutical, probiotic and pharmaceutical products (among others) inside tube-style packaging.
