Blister foils and Cold Form

Essentra offers a range of printed decoration solutions for printed blister foils and Cold Form material for high-efficiency pharmaceutical packaging. Printed foil options include push-through, peel-push, tear-open, peelable and child-resistant formats.

We specialise in tailored solutions and, with a portfolio of base material (from a range of established suppliers), we can assure product protection and ease of opening that conform to regulatory standards.

We have a number of production sites, all of them GMP compliant. That means we can offer high flexibility and low minimum order volumes (as low as 5kg) along with quick turnaround times. Access to several sites also translates into supply chain flexibility, reduced working capital requirements and speed to market. Importantly, it also helps assure supply and aids contingency planning.
