Discover The Many Perks Of Polyethylene Films: Production, Types and Uses
As much as we love stepping out and breathing in the fresh air, fact remains that it is not just revitalizing oxygen in the air. It also contains specks of dust, spoilage bacteria, humidity and other unwarranted particles. While our bodies are trained to survive and thrive despite it all, the food and the products that we consume are unfortunately not. This is where polyethylene films come to our rescue. Let’s explore what a polyethylene packaging film is, along with its uses, types and many advantages-

What Is Polyethylene Film(PE film)?

To put it simply, a Polyethylene (PE) film is essentially a plastic film made from hydrocarbons, which is mainly obtained from natural gas or petroleum. Because of its wide use, polyethylene has many names in the market – ‘plastic sheeting’, ‘polyethylene sheet’, ‘poly sheeting’, or ‘poly film’.
It is a direct product of petroleum, which is why its costs are subject to the change in accordance with the oil prices. Usually, it is made available in rolls. Polyethylene sheeting is your best bet when it comes to plastic protection. The beauty of these flexible films lie in the fact that they can be tailored to perfectly fit into a project’s requirement. This is done with the help of additives such as U.V. inhibitors, fire retardants, and other anti-static additives. These additives are adept at changing the functionality of the film, ensuring that it best serves its purpose.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Blister Packs
A forming film and lidding material are needed to create a blister pack that can be used for several purposes. It is usually the PVC plastic that is used to create the forming film and PVC Blister packaging has a lot of advantages over bottles and another type of packaging. Mostly plastic is used as a lidding material but either a printed or plain foil is mainly used in pharmaceutical products for safety purposes.

Blister packaging vs. Bottles
Studies show that more than 75% of the medicines in Europe are packed in blisters. While this percentage in the US may not be as high as 75%, it surely is a lot more than bottles. Besides, both consumers and producers have started to understand the benefits of blistering packaging. Bottles could be broken, and the patients don’t even know how many pills they have taken if they are using bottles.
Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of Blister packaging in detail.

Advantages of Blister Packaging
The first and foremost use of this sort of packaging is that it helps the patients follow the drug regimens. Drugs and medicine tend to have a longer life and more extended expiry date when this type of packaging is used. Another great benefit of this packaging is that there is a separate blister for each pill or capsule; the possibility of pills getting contaminated as a whole is entirely ruled out.
In this type of packaging, days of the week are incorporated on the sheet, so the patients have a better idea as to how often they are required to take their medication. Since aluminum sheets are used in the blister packaging, no type of contamination is possible but this has some costs too.

Despite the fact that it has a lot of advantages, there are also some disadvantages that cannot be eliminated. First off is that since aluminum is used for the entire package, the whole process takes a lot more time as compared to the time taken with plastic. Another rare disadvantage of this type of packaging is that it uses foil backing, and patients can push the medicines through the foil, but it is child-resistant. Finally, the sealing process to attach the plastic takes too much time, and if the proper equipment is not used, it could result in an increase in the cost too.
If we compare the advantages and disadvantages of this type of packaging, we will come to know that benefits outweigh the disadvantages. Everything comes at a cost, and there are no harmful effects or disadvantages that would prevent you from using it. However, a number of advantages of blister packaging make it a better option than the other types of packaging. Moreover, the fact that it also cuts the production cost is high for pharmaceutical companies that need to manufacture drugs and medicines in vast quantities. This is the reason this type of packaging is getting popular not only in the United States but all over the world.
