Blister packaging is widely used. But anything that has plastic on the front and another material (usually cardboard) on the back is considered blister packaging. So what are the benefits of choosing blister packaging?
Freshness: Especially for one-time-use items, having individual compartments makes it possible to have items ready for the consumer anytime, anywhere. For this reason, food, pharmaceuticals, and other environmentally sensitive items may benefit from blister packaging.
Dosage or Serving Size: For pharmaceuticals and certain foods, these packages evenly dispense an item so that the consumer knows exactly how much to use at one time. Medication dosages are easier to understand and safer for consumers when using this type of packaging.
Packaging Materials: Aesthetically speaking, plastic blister containers are a good choice as it offers a variety of options for the product to create a visually appealing and texturally pleasing experience. Typically, plastic and cardboard are used in commercial applications.
Visibility: These containers feature a plastic front that allows consumers to view the product before purchasing. Doing so ensures that the number of products included is as advertised and that all products are accounted for. Even though customers can view items, they cannot touch them. In this way, the product is protected from thieves and tampering.
Security: For items that need to stay in place, blister packs are the ideal solution. Personalized and often small compartments do not allow product movement within the package. This design prevents items from being damaged during shipping.
Customizable: Because all plastic blisters are thermoformed, each design is unique to the product being sold. Regardless of the size or quantity of items contained in a blister pack, it can be customized to suit the needs of the product.
One of the attractions of blister packaging is that it is airtight packaging. For this reason, it is most commonly used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. You may recall what pharmacy medicines look like, and the way they are carefully sealed in packages to allow for sterile conditions.
Other uses of blister packaging include items such as cosmetics, batteries, and other daily necessities and stationery items such as dental floss or toothbrushes. The blister packs are airtight, which makes them hygienic and free from dust until applicable.
