Selig publishes tamper-evident packaging white paper
Selig, a leading worldwide manufacturer of tamper evident cap and closure lining materials, is pleased to announce the publishing of the company’s white paper on producing tamper-evident, easy to access packaging for the pharmaceutical sector.
The white paper has been developed by experts at Selig to help manufacturers create packaging that meets the demands of not only consumers and regulators but pharmaceutical companies as well. Developing robust, secure containers that protect the integrity of products, yet provide clear visual evidence of tampering and are easy to open is a challenge that manufacturers have been struggling with for years. The Selig white paper discusses the issues faced and how these can be overcome through induction cap sealing. It also discusses the use of laminated liners in pharmaceutical applications and issues surrounding achieving an effective seal.
Darren Dodd, Marketing and Service Director, comments: “We have prepared this whitepaper to show manufacturers that it is possible to develop tamper-evident, easy-to-open pharmaceutical packaging by using induction cap sealing. Although there are interactions between the container, product, liner design, line speed and induction settings that need to be considered, once these are understood safe, secure, cost-effective and stylish pharmaceutical packaging results are possible”.
