Amcor HealthCare™ AmSky™ Blister System
Country: USA
Category: Health and Personal Care
Amcor’s AmSky™ Recycle Ready consumer healthcare blister package offers a sustainable alternative to a 50-year-old package technology that is one of the least sustainable consumer packages. Current consumer health blister packages use PVC, which is defined by the U.S. Plastics Pact and many other sustainability-oriented organizations as a ‘Problematic and Unnecessary Material’. In addition, current packages have a thick layer of aluminum foil welded to the PVC exasperating any opportunity for recycling. AmSky is formulated using HDPE, one of the most recycled plastics in the world and is designed to drop into existing blister packaging applications. AmSky™ has been designed as a no-compromise alternative for use in the packaging of over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements. Amcor received Critical Guidance Recognition for the AmSky™ blister package from the US based Association of Plastics Recyclers and a very favorable 87% recyclability rating for polyethylene from the Institute cyclos – HTP in Germany.
Amcor’s AmSky™ Blister System delivers industry leading moisture barrier for a mono-material product. Amcor’s AmSky™ Blister System delivers barrier protection equivalent to both PVdC coated PVC as well as some Aclar® PVC laminates. Consumer health companies are able to eliminate PVC, PVdC, and in some cases Aclar from their packaging materials and move to a mono-material option.
