Constantia Flexibles has introduced Perpetua, a more sustainable high-barrier packaging option for pharmaceutical products. It is the company’s first recyclable polymeric mono-material.
Perpetua has a wide range of uses in pharma packaging applications offering important active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) protection from oxygen, water vapor, and light to provide the patient with effective medication.
The new recyclable product family is based on a unique line of full PP (polypropylene) high barrier laminates and is available in application-tailored versions. It has been certified by The Institute cyclos-HTP, a German initiative that has designed a catalog for requirements and for assessing and certifying the recyclability of packaging and goods. The product has received a score of 90 to 96 percent, depending on the individual material specification.
Pierre-Henri Bruchon, EVP pharma division at Constantia Flexibles, commented: ‘Our mission is to constantly rethink packaging to make a meaningful contribution to our customers and the environment. Sustainability plays a decisive role in all our business activities. Therefore, the development of a more sustainable but at the same time high-barrier solution for pharma products like Perpetua was of high importance to us. It is the perfect packaging solution for pharma products.’
