Labels and sachets have a variety of applications and can be used in many stages of product production. Depending on the requirements, the labels must combine several characteristics: the design must meet all the needs of both the product and the customer; the information must follow the legal and regulatory requirements; the materials must be selected according to the usage and storage conditions and the application.
Labels for glass packaging
For many drugs, the primary packaging material is glass and for these it is necessary for the label to be well affixed so that it retains its integrity and all the information all the way from labeling through distribution to the administration of the product. Often, for example, liquid medicinal products are stored in glass containers, the labels of which are important to have suitable properties to achieve spillage resistance.
Another challenge for labels for glass vials, bottles and other containers for medicinal products is the manner of storage and distribution, which are carried out under strictly defined environmental conditions to preserve the quality of the product. Therefore, resistance to different temperature conditions, humidity and others can also be part of the required characteristics when printing labels.
Labels for plastic packaging
There are many types of vials, bottles, various plastic containers that serve as containers for the storage and distribution of medicinal products and other medical products. In many cases, they are also stored and distributed under highly specific conditions for which label materials need to be carefully selected.
The pharmaceutical products with plastic primary packaging can have different states - hard, soft, liquid. Therefore, the packaging is designed to simultaneously store them in the most appropriate way and allow their correct use. Because of this, plastic packaging has many different shapes. The labels must be adapted to them in order to remain well adhered and preserve the information about the product.
The purpose of the security labels is to recognize whether the integrity of the package has not been violated, the product has not been opened, whether its contents have not been illegally changed or replaced. This type of label is particularly useful both for customers and for manufacturers to preserve the good name of the brand.
In the technologies for the production and printing of security labels, there are several features that require special attention. Contact Rotoprint so we can discuss the possibilities of manufacturing security labels for the pharmaceutical industry, tailored specifically for your product’s requirements.
Printing on material for Sachets for powder products
One of the widespread medicinal forms is the powder form. It allows the administration of pharmaceutical products in precise doses and, accordingly, longer preservation of the product as individually sealed doses. Medicines in powder form should be protected from spilling of the substance, moisture, light, and others.
The sachet does not only have a protective function. It also has the task of giving accurate information about the product, as well as to build its identity as a brand based on its design. With the possibilities of digital, offset and flexographic printing, you have the opportunity to create a product appearance that is recognizable and easy to find among other products in the pharmacy.
Printing on material for Tubes for cream products
For pharmaceutical products that are in cream form, manufacturers often choose to use tubes. They are convenient way to distribute the drug in convenient doses, they are protecting from light and moisture, and to have a high level of protection against contamination. The tube laminate can have different characteristics to meet the consistency and needs of the product.
With both ABL and PBL tubes, the printing possibilities are great. A unique look is achieved for each product with the power of flexography and digital printing. High-quality colors and beautiful finishing effects such as matte and gloss finishes are possible. For the printing process, it does not matter what the shape of the opening of the tube will be, which gives additional opportunities to create the overall appearance in combination along with the functionality of the package.
