Essentra provides an innovative offering of cartons, leaflets, labels, printed primary packaging and tapes for a range of medical devices from pharmaceutical drugs to critical disinfection.
Innovative carton solutions to meet demands for more effective and economical packaging.
Designed for fragile products such as vials, bottles, ampoules and syringes, Parenteral Paper Packs (PPP) are an important environmental packaging innovation. Made of 100% recyclable carton board, these display boxes have minimum impact on virgin materials and require no extra assembly before adding the product.
Inserting leaflets into a pharmaceutical product carton can be difficult and costly. Essentra’s ComboPack™ enables cartons to be preloaded with a cross-folded tagsert before contents are added. ComboPack™ is quick and easy to use. There’s no need for a separate folding process, and it reduces transport costs as the combined package and contents are produced on the same site.
Our cartons can be layered with a range of techniques to create unique overt and covert fine-design security solutions.
Piggyback® comprises two- or three-folded leaflets glued together back to back.
Plurium™ is a multipage folded booklet that offers separate sections for different audiences, marketing purposes and even languages. Our Plurium™ products enable large volumes of information to be displayed (at compliant font sizes) and are available in either leaflet or booklet formats. Both formats comprise up to five sheets (10 printed pages) glued at the spine, which can be colour coded to highlight different sections.
Pharmaceutical products are increasingly being issued with a folding label to hold legal texts and patient information. Inserts and outserts enable a label and leaflet insert to be combined to form a folding label.
Self adhesive healthcare labels to inform patients, while protecting and enhancing your brand.
Pharma-Sling® is a pressure-sensitive adhesive label with an additional ply of clear over-laminate to allow for container or device hanging.
Essentra’s pressure-sensitive, multipanel extended-content labels and two- or three-ply Peel 2 Read labels provide extra space for instructions, translations, legal text and ingredients. By helping to reduce handling and eliminate mislabelling, they can increase production efficiency.
Peel 2 Read labels (two- and three-ply) are simple peel-back labels that enable extended text on the pack to house information such as instructions, multiple languages, legal information and ingredients.
Blister foils, Cold Form and printed medical papers for disposable packaging.
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.
Medical papers are used for various devices and components (eg disposable syringes) to assure cleanliness and quality.
