One of the world's most widely used forms of packaging – the blister pack – can now be made totally in paperboard.
Two major benefits are reduced environmental impact and less consumer rage and self-injury. Blister packs are made to hang on a holder in the retail store and often consist of a paperboard backing plus a moulded transparent plastic front section to display the product to the consumer. The Norwegian converter Moltzaus's ingeniously designed Cefapac improves both the pack's environmental performance and its openability, and has already won awards.
The pack is produced by Invercote from Iggesund Paperboard. Read the entire news item about a plastic-free blister pack on iggesund.com.
