Supply of desiccant strip sealed into the foil of the Stickpack,suitable for moisture-sensitive products.
In addition to the well-known Merz Stickpack program for the pharmaceutical industry, Merz will present a new development for the production of “Activ Stickpacks” at FachPack. This stickpack is equipped with an additional material which absorbs moisture and oxygen and, therefore, can regulate the atmosphere within the packaging.
As a result, the products in the Stickpack (e.g. tablets – micro tablets, but also powders or granules) can be protected more efficiently against moisture and their shelf life and stability are improved.
Thanks to the unique design, the risk of choking conventional desiccant can be excluded: the additional material is firmly welded with the film and designed in a way that the product is not hidden by the additional material.
This also leads to the fact that the additional material cannot be removed from the film without destroying the packaging, which again is beneficial for the application of pediatric medication.
This functional group is shown on a MERZ SBL50 machine in combination with a micro tablet dosing unit, which can fill any number of tablets requested in a highly flexible manner.
This additional equipment can be retrofitted at any MERZ SBL50 machine, which is true for all Merz machinery.

* DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION:
In the strip supply, a desiccant strip is cut to length and simultaneously glued onto the inside of the foil of the Stickpack.
The desiccant strip is then located inside the Stickpack.
It protects moisture-sensitive pharma products.
The foils used offer better protection against moisture than the thermoformed packs (blister packs) that are already known because the Stickpack has an aluminium barrier all around.
Standard foils can be used.
