Alufoil Trophy 2012: The winners
Constantia Flexibles’ innovative opening solutions for stick packs offer easy and clean opening for dosage stick packs, primarily used in the pharmaceutical sector for oral applications of both liquids and powder. The Laser Perforation Opening Aid can be opened quickly and simply and is clearly marked by arrows at one end of the stick. Using the PET/Alu/PE-LD easy-tear laminate and laser perforation allows 100 per cent of the aperture to be opened. The stick pack with Opening Aid TOF introduces a micro-perforation in a defined area of the PET layer of the laminate.
Again, the device is also suited to oral applications for pharmaceuticals, as well as other personal care or food products. Both forms of opening come in child resistant formats and have no impact on the barrier properties of the aluminium foil laminate.
