Push Tab® - an innovative tablet packaging solution for pharmaceutical and healthcare industries

Huhtamaki’s Push Tab® is a flexible blister solution for tablet packaging. It presents a new child-safe way of opening a strip pack by pushing through the tablet. Push Tab® provides an alternative to blister or cold form packs.

“We’ve developed Push Tab® especially as an alternative to high barrier blisters and cold form packaging. Its main advantages are that it is PVC free and cost effective,” says Fabio Daidone, Senior Sales Manager from Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging.

The PVC free material provides the highest barrier properties with improved shelf life. The barrier properties are not affected in any way by pushing through the film and thus guarantee the highest levels of product safety. The risk of migration is also very low, as the laminate does not contain any solvents. Based on the typical market specification of PET-PE-Alu-PE/Surlyn, Push Tab® is suitable for all climate zones.

The Push Tab® packaging is available in unlimited forms and shapes for differentiation. The material is also easy to print on with different technologies, which provides new opportunities for design and product visibility.

We are currently working with several customers on diverse projects to introduce Push Tab® into the market.

We will be presenting Push Tab® at Pharmapack Paris on February 6-7, 2019. Come and meet us on our booth E48.
