A new laminate from Amcor Flexibles, which enables sensitive pharmaceuticals to be packed in stick packs, has scooped an Alufoil Trophy 2018 in the Resource Efficiency category.
PolyInert Laminates for Stick Packs is a multilayer barrier laminate with aluminium foil that has a contact layer specifically developed with low scalping properties. This improves the shelf life of the product as well as helping to reduce both the pack size and its carbon footprint, according to the company.
Other advantages of Polyinert include that it can be sandwich or surface printed for information, marketing or to include anti-counterfeiting measures.
Тhe reduction in pack size, compared with traditional formats such as sachets, can achieve as much as 40% materials savings, reduce non-renewable primary energy by 30% and water consumption by 39%, in addition to the 30% saved on the carbon footprint.
