Sanner enters decorative packaging market with Brilliance tube

Offers in-mould labelling and desiccant closures for effervescent tablets

Sanner is entering the market for decorated packaging with the new Brilliance tube

Sanner, a German manufacturer of high-quality plastic packaging for pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare products, is expanding its portfolio.

The company has added the Brilliance tube for effervescent tablets with in-mould labelling (IML) which can be used with the company's proven desiccant closures to protect their contents from light and moisture.

The Brilliance tube also allows photorealistic printing with a choice of textures and finishes and more legible product information. Up to eight colours and metallic effects are possible to make packaging stand out at point of sale.

Although the tubes are best suited to effervescent tablets, they also work with conventional or coated tablets and other solid pharmaceutical products, the company says.

The advantage of IML technology is that packaging production and decoration are combined into a single process. Printed labels are placed in the mould and the liquid plastic is injected. The temperature of the plastic causes the label to bond fully with the tube. Additionally the geometry of the tube base ensures that the tubes can be easily packaged in standard commercial sales trays.

The high-impact, scratch-resistant material is also extremely durable.
