Tekni-Plex Gallazzi is set to exhibit its latest rigid and flexible packaging materials for pharmaceutical applications at this year’s Pharmapack event in France.

The event will take place between 7 and 8 February in Paris.

At the event, the company will showcase Tekni-Films Flexapharm line of SBC ultra-high moisture and oxygen barrier PVdC thermoformable blister films, which can be used for multiple pharma packaging applications.

The company will also exhibit high-barrier PCTFE laminated solutions, as well as PVC/PVdC two and three-layered structured products at the event.

Tekni-Plex will exhibit PVC-free solutions, including TekniMD PX copolyester films that can be laminated with PCTFE.

Other PVC-free products offered by the firm include custom extrusions such as PP, PP/COC/PP, and other high barrier and multilayer coextrusion solutions.

Tekni-Films supplies of thermoformable blister barrier films, flexible films, lidding foils and pouch materials for pharmaceutical, medical, diagnostic health and personal care applications.

In October 2017, Genstar Capital acquired Tekni-Plex from American Securities for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Wayne of Pennsylvania, Tekni-Plex produces products, components and materials for healthcare, specialty packaging and food packaging applications.
