Medicines are very used items, and the choice of packaging materials for medicines is also very important. 

Bad packaging materials can easily lead to volatilization of medicinal properties and cannot be used, resulting in waste of medicines and affecting the global environment.


The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most sensitive and regulated industries when it comes to the production, supply and distribution of high-quality products. 

Here, government agencies set strict specifications on how medicines should be packaged and delivered to end users.


Therefore, aluminum foil packaging has replaced traditional plastic, paper and other packaging as a new type of packaging material. 

Traditional medicine packaging is mainly in bottles and cans, which are bulky and difficult to carry, and each tablet or capsule is not individually protected. 

Using one of them will affect other capsules and cannot be stored for a long time. 

Aluminum foil for pharmaceutical packaging is becoming the most economical and suitable alternative to traditional bottle packaging.


Aluminum foil is used in pharmaceutical packaging because it has high barrier properties to moisture, oxygen vapor, 

and is therefore ideal for providing an inert environment for the packaging of hygroscopic tablets and capsules. 

The aluminum foil commonly used in pharmaceutical packaging is aluminum foil blister aluminum foil,

the thickness of the aluminum foil is 20 microns or 25 microns, and it is sealed with PVC film to form a blister package. 

It can protect the medicinal properties of medicines in the most effective and maximum cycle.
