Klockner Pentaplast: Light foamed medical packaging

Because current FDA medical-packaging regulations prohibit the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) content, Klöckner Pentaplast’s Pentamed light foamed high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) films fill customers’ sustainability goals by providing material reduction as they reduce package weight while maintaining physical properties comparable to standard materials.

The films can improve package yield by 5 to 20% providing cost-saving opportunities. 

Pentamed light films offer quality formability and processability on standard thermoforming and form/fill/seal equipment. They are sealable to a wide range of lid stocks. The films can be EtO, gamma, and E-beam sterilized and can be used for trays, containers, clamshells, and liners.
