Easy to open for seniors and consumers with dexterity challenges, the Keystone Folding Box f=1 version of its Key-Pak® child-resistant blister card can be used with cold-form foil (Alu/Alu) blisters. The customizable fold-over Alu-Alu version is suitable for pharma products requiring high barrier protection, as well as delicate or friable oral solid dose products requiring a peel-back opening to prevent physical damage to tablets or capsules.
Made mostly of paperboard, the blister card comprises up to 75% less plastic than bottles or amber vials. Its back-side “zipper” design provides for safe, clean, simple removal of each dose, while its broad, flat surface gives ample room for usage instructions or drug information.
The blister card also features a single-component composition that streamlines production and leads to fewer specifications, inspections, assembly, graphics, engineering, and necessary tooling.
“Introducing a proven f=1 cold-form, all-aluminum version of our Key-Pak® blister card is a logical next step in the product’s evolution and series expansion, providing another option to an already customizable line of solutions,” says Ward Smith, director of marketing & business development at Keystone Folding Box. “Given the recent lead time challenges for traditional blister materials that some pharma companies and contract packagers are experiencing, the product’s timing also aligns with a defined market need.”
