Aluminum foil for pharmaceutical packaging

Aluminum foil for blister packs, strip packs, sachets and pouches.

In addition to the traditional aluminum foil used for blister packaging,  the aluminum foil is also composted with a variety of plastics and paper and other materials as pharmaceutical packaging materials, such as child-safe blister aluminum foil, cold stamping forming aluminum foil, tropical blister packaging aluminum foil suppository compound film.

Compared with other packaging materials, aluminum material has the following advantages: 

1.the density of aluminum is very small, 2.7g/cm, only 35‰ of steel, which makes the container easy to achieve light weight. 

2.Aluminum surface can naturally generate a layer of dense aluminum oxide film, this layer of colorless film can prevent further oxidation;

3. Aluminum non-toxic and tasteless, in line with the hygiene standards of packaged food;

4. Aluminum surface gloss, easy to color, good printing effect; The opening performance of easy opening cover made of aluminum is better than that of tin plate. Aluminum has excellent reflection and conduction properties to light and heat, The composite film made of aluminum foil is completely impermeable to air and light, which can effectively protect the inner food. 

5.Aluminum foil can also improve the strength of aluminum - plastic composite film. Waste can be recycled and reused, which can save energy consumption and prevent the public hazards caused by waste, meeting the requirements of environmental protection. 

Drug blister packaging using aluminum foil is sealed on the plastic sheet sealing material, also known as cover mouth material, commonly known as PTP medicinal aluminum foil. It based on the rigid industrial aluminum foil material, with non-toxic, corrosion resistance, permeability resistance, health advantages of heat, moisture, easily for high temperature disinfection sterilization, blocking light, can protect the drug from the destruction of the light, the aluminum foil with plastic cover material plate sealing should be on the printing and coating machine before printing text pattern, and coated with protective agent, on the other side of the aluminum foil coated with adhesive. The purpose of coating protectant is to prevent the mechanical wear of the ink on the surface of aluminum foil, and to prevent the contact between the outer ink and the inner adhesive during the mechanical winding of aluminum foil. The effect of coating adhesive is to make aluminum foil and plastic sheet with good adhesive strength. The raw material used to produce PTP aluminum foil is pure aluminum foil for industrial use. It is generally required that the thickness is 0.02mm, the tensile strength is 98kPa, and the bursting strength is 90kPa. The surface is clean, flat, without wrinkles, indentation damage, or fluorescent substances, and the wetting tension on the surface is no less than 32.


Because metal packaging materials are easy to recycle and dispose, their wastes pollute the environment less than plastic and paper. With the metal packaging materials such as tin and aluminum, widely used in the manufacture of food and beverage packaging cans. Because aluminum foil recycling is very easy, almost no pollution to the environment, so the use of aluminum foil instead of plastic and paper is a good direction of development. Many foods and medicines can be packaged in containers made of aluminum foil


In Europe and the United States, developed countries, used for packaging aluminum foil products accounted for 70% of the total demand. In the Chinese market, aluminum foil is mainly used as raw and auxiliary material for industrial manufacturing. Packaging aluminum foil only accounts for 30% of the total domestic demand. Although the development of aluminum foil packaging late, but the rapid growth of the current market, the prospect of attention.


HTMM(Henan Tendeli  Metalurgical Materials Co., Ltd)specialized in aluminum foil for more than decades, mainly supply 1,3,8 series alloy, Thickness from 0.006-0.2mm,width from 200mm-1700mm high quality aluminum foil. We have the roughing rolling mill, middle rolling mill and , The rolling machine keep the HONEYWELL thickness controlling system and ABB plate controlling system. the products quality can reach the domestic first-class level.
