BlisterPro® XCEL Services 
Klöckner Pentaplast's BlisterPro® XCEL Services optimize the union of product and packaging. Protective barrier properties of the final package are predicted reducing or eliminating the need for expensive and time-consuming line trials. For over 50 years Klöckner Pentaplast has been a leader in producing high performing barrier films; the addition of BlisterPro® XCEL material selection and design execution has become a science, setting kp apart from other film producers. Imagine the value created when many months of design, testing and feedback can now, in many cases, be accomplished in weeks. Based at the first kp i.center, located in Charlottesville, VA (USA), the expanded BlisterPro® XCEL suite of design services offers a collaborative space specifically configured to help global customers bring products to market more quickly and economically.

Pentapharm® LiquiGuardTM

Klöckner Pentaplast will introduce LiquiGuardTM, the latest inventive addition to the Pentapharm® line of pharmaceutical blister films. With Pentapharm® LiquiGuardTM, hot and cold-fill liquids and semi-solids can be formed and packaged directly in a crystal-clear, thermostable laminate film that protects sensitive products from package leaching and moisture gain or loss. "Pentapharm LiquiGuardTM provides an advanced option for unit dose packaging of liquid or semi-solid medications that require resistance to extreme temperatures from hot (120oC filling) to cold (-183oC and lyophilized) during processing, while offering all the benefits of a clear, thermoformable blister film with a customizable moisture barrier," states Frank Oliveri, Director Global Marketing, Pharmaceutical Packaging.
