Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets for the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries

Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, unveiled a new product for the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries at the API China trade show in the form of Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets.

Welded together using uncoated Tyvek, these sustainable packets offer greater moisture absorbing capacity while at the same time cutting raw materials usage by 25%.

The packets can be produced in single units at extremely small sizes – the smallest being just 19x25mm and 0.5g in weight and carrying high vertical and horizontal tear strength properties.

Airnov’s Rimless products also used in food packaging applications

The Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets are primarily designed for small pharmaceutical and diagnostics product bottles and can also be utilized in medical devices and food packaging applications.

Albert Zhao, Head of Sales Region APAC and Operation China at Airnov, commented: “These state-of-the-art packets using new desiccant sealing techniques have been developed by our team at Airnov’s Dongguan plant, and are the result of close consultation with our customers in these sectors.

“A key demand was to create a solution that can drop into bottles and lie flat, as opposed to lining the side of the packaging. This saves space before the bottle is filled with our customer’s product.”

The Dongguan plant specializes in the manufacture of a full range of high-quality desiccant packets, chiefly for customers in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and food industries but also for a range of complementary active packaging products.

Because of their ultra-small size, the Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets can also be inserted into medicine bottles post-production. They are small enough to insert through the bottleneck, helping to reduce complexity and add speed to the manufacturing and assembly process.

Airnov exhibited this range of packets at API China, a leading pharmaceuticals and chemicals trade show that has been attracting a wide audience of buyers and sellers since it was established in 1968.

Airnov was joined by more than 1,500 fellow exhibitors showcasing their products to over 60,000 visitors at the event, which was hosted at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou over three days (May 26-28).

“We are taking the opportunity to showcase our innovations at API China and demonstrate the value Airnov can bring to pharmaceutical industry players,” added Zhao. “We welcome visitors to visit our booth and see how our Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets can streamline their packaging solutions while also boosting their commitments to sustainability.”


Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
