Medical Barrier Packaging
Barrier Packaging for Organic Medical Products
Fisher Container has taken the opportunity to utilize our 45 years of experience to create a line of barrier packaging that caters to the organic medicine industry. Each individual product needs a package that will allow it the greatest amount of shelf life, and our barrier pouches are top-of-the-line.
Don’t be fooled by companies claiming to have knowledge in packaging when “Smell-Proof” is advertised; the correct terminology would be “barrier” packaging. The cause for the “Smell” that can permeate through the pouch is a very low oxygen or moisture vapor transmission barrier. The values to examine are calculated with Moisture Vapor Transmission Rates and Oxygen Transmission Rates so that you can see, in a given time, exactly how much of each can permeate in or out of the pouch when it is hermetically sealed (sealed airtight).
With Fisher Container’s expertise, we can help you find the exact Barrier properties that your product needs to allow it the greatest length of shelf life. All of our barrier pouches can also be vacuum sealed and nitrogen flushed to prevent oxidation.
Here is a list of the characteristics that Fisher Container tests to maintain excellent quality:
- Dart Impact
- Elmendorf Tear Strength
- Tensile Strength at Yield
- Ultimate Tensile Strength
- Elongation at Break
- Coefficient of Friction
- Melt Index
- MVTR (Moisture Vapor Transmission)
- OTR (Oxygen Transmission)
