8 Reasons to consider Fiber Molded packaging for secondary pharmaceutical packaging

On Mar 23, 2021

Pharmaceutical and medical companies are having increasing concern for the need for sustainable packaging. But there may be other benefits to using fiber molded packaging besides sustainability. Here are 8 other reasons to consider fiber molded packaging for secondary packaging.

  1. Food safe materials – Fibrepak will have a Food Compliance certification in place by end of July 2021. This type of certification is often required by pharmaceutical companies looking for secondary packaging.
  2. Dust control – Fibrepak produces the highest quality, thin walled fiber packaging that is smooth surfaced. And with the use of special sealing agents, we can avoid the potential dust that can be created by traditional fiber packages.
  3. Sustainability – As well as being recyclable with paper, Fibrepak’s fiber molded packaging is both compostable and biodegradable, making this a great sustainable option for pharmaceutical secondary packaging.
  4. Product protection – Our Cure-In-The-Mold technology produces the most well-defined fiber packaging available, allowing for excellent protection and shock absorbency capabilities. Fiber can sometimes outperform plastic in similar respects.
  5. Moisture resistance – Our packaging can be treated to be moisture resistant, making this solution ideal for packaging with a longer shelf life.
  6. Stacking Capabilities – Fibrepak packaging has a high tolerance allowing accurate registration to ensure a consistent fit. With thin walls, precisely trimmed edges and well-defined hinges, parts can nest together for transport and storage.
  7. Anti-Counterfeiting – The need for counterfeit protected packaging has become very important for many companies in the industry. With the customizable nature of our process, we can assure our customers that their package will be one of a kind.
  8. Opportunity to elevate brand image – Fibrepak provides brands the opportunity to package their products in a material isn’t as hazardous to the environment as plastic is if it is disposed of properly. It’s one of the reasons Lego chose Fibrepak for the advent calendar tray. They also created a guide on how to repurpose the tray into a Christmas crafts once the consumer has used the tray.

We know that sustainability is a huge part of our customer’s packaging process. With the use of molded fiber packaging, we can offer our customers not only a sustainable packaging alternative but can also deliver many other benefits traditional plastic packages may not always provide.
