Innovations in material science are enabling groundbreaking solutions for a wide range of challenges that impact patient care and consumer experiences in healthcare. Some of the latest will be presented by Aptar CSP Technologies at the up-coming Indian Smart Packaging Summit on 19th March 2021.

The company,  leveraging 20 years+ of material science expertise, has developed unique, material science-based solutions that take advantage of its proprietary 3-Phase Activ-Polymer™ technology. This technology is fully custom-engineered and formulated to enable control of the kinetics of moisture adsorption, oxygen and VOC scavenging, antimicrobial emission, and more, it claims.

During the Indian Smart Packaging Summit Aptar CSP will explain how these technologies can help the Indian pharmaceutical sector, amongst others, to protect and preserve many of the drugs which need to be stored and transported over long distances in challenging conditions.

It is a technology that can be applied to solve challenges in a range of pharma-related application fields such as oral solid dose drugs, diagnostics, probiotics, transdermal, inhaled drugs, medical devices, as well as food safety.

Two examples of how this technology works include Activ-Blister™ technology for oral solid dose drugs and ActivShield™* (not available for sale in the USA) technology for N95 mask decontamination.

Activ-Blister™ Solutions: In the development of the oral solid doses – today’s most popular drug delivery form – there are stability issues associated with moisture, oxygen, and reactive impurities, resulting in the loss of potency or degradant growth. According to Aptar CSP, Activ-Blister™ solves these challenges by creating a microclimate for moisture and oxygen-sensitive capsules and tablets in individual blister cavities to extend shelf life and ensure stability.

This technology can be integrated into traditional blister packaging and enables drug developers to protect sensitive drugs that would normally require a cold-form foil solution in the preferred thermoform blister format.

Its 3-Phase Activ-Polymer™ technology has been applied to help resolve the shortage of N95 masks during the global COVID-19 pandemic. ActivShield™ emits a sterilizing agent that quickly, easily and safely decontaminates individual N95 masks, enabling repeated re-use when this needed personal protective equipment is in short supply.

The power of material science is undeniable and can be applied in multiple application fields to help improve patient and consumer experiences. Come and learn more by registering as a delegate for the India Smart Packaging Summit today.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
