Perpetua Sachet - the packaging solution is characterized by its high barrier properties

Constantia Flexibles’ new solution Perpetua is a more sustainable high-barrier packaging solution for pharma products. It is the company’s first recyclable polymeric mono-material, has a wide range of uses in pharma packaging applications, and is now available worldwide. Perpetua offers product protection from oxygen, water vapor, and light.

High protection levels against moisture, oxygen, and heat are important for protecting active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), to provide the patient with an effective medication. Constantia Flexibles’ goal was to meet the very high barrier properties for pharma products while implementing the best possible sustainability standards. The result is Perpetua, a recyclable product family, based on a unique line of full PP (Polypropylene) high barrier laminates. The flexible packaging solution is available in application-tailored versions. Being cyclos-HTP* certified, its recyclability ranges from 90% to 96%, depending on the individual material specification.

The high barrier properties and lower environmental footprint do not limit the design possibilities of the packaging.

Pierre-Henri Bruchon, executive vice president Pharma Division Constantia Flexibles, says, “Our mission is to constantly rethink packaging to make a meaningful contribution to our customers and the environment. Sustainability plays a decisive role in all our business activities. Therefore, the development of a more sustainable but at the same time high-barrier solution for pharma products like Perpetua was of high importance to us. It is the perfect packaging solution for pharma products.”

*The Institute cyclos-HTP is a German institute which has designed a catalog for requirements and for assessing and certifying the recyclability of packaging and goods. Institute cyclos-HTP certifies the recyclability for Perpetua family products.
