RPC Astrapak Plastop, a business unit of RPC Group, has unveiled new Medipac container range for the prescriptive medicines and wellness supplements markets.
Medipac container range is available in a variety of shapes and sizes, which can be used for a multitude of doses.
Available in 145ml, 175ml, 260ml and 340ml sizes, the Medipac containers are suitable for all types of tablets, capsules and supplements, helping brands to maintain continuity irrespective of the dose.
The 100% polypropylene (PP) construction of the containers are said to provide a light weight and advanced pack, which is impact resistant and long-lasting for maximum product protection.
An optional liner in the closure will provide additional protection against degradation during transport, and the screw-on closure integrates a tamper-evident sealing band for enhanced consumer safety.
Medipac’s classic rounded shape and surface ﬁnish provides a better look on-shelf, while a large decorative area facilitates effective branding through using either screen-printing or self-adhesive labels.
The 100% recyclability of PP allows companies to achieve sustainability targets. Applications for recycled PP comprise of spatulas, cutting boards, storage bins and shipping pallets.
