Benefits of blister packaging or blister pack

This form of product packaging is probably the most popular among pharmaceutical, beauty, and toy products. For anyone not familiar with blister packaging, a traditional blister pack is known as a face seal blister and has a cardboard back. The plastic blister is fixed to the front of the cardboard, to contain and protect the product.  And it is typically made out of two components; the pocket and the backing. The pocket holds and protects the product, it is usually made out of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and the backing can and often is made out of foil, paper, or plastic. A blister can be made in any shape a uniform shape to protect the product.

Advantages of blister packaging: 

  • Safe storage and protection from damage. 
  • Blister packaging guards products against oxygen and humidity and other environmental threats.
