Pharmaceutical foil

Pharmaceutical foil

The unique barrier provided by aluminium foil makes it an excellent component for packing sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals.
From rolling to ready material storing, our plant meets the highest hygiene standards guaranteeing that the final product will fulfil the strictest specifications. With the use of on-line pinhole detectors we control the entire length of the foil ensuring that our product achieves maximum impermeability.
Especially for blister foil, our experience and our extensive technological expertise enable us to offer a product surface suitable for water based primers without applying any chemical treatment.
Our metal for cold forming has been widely proven to guarantee a great formability, while keeping the highest possible barrier.
