Blister Coatings Market: Overview
Blister packaging typically consists of two elements: plastic blister and coated & printed blister card. Both of these elements are combined through a sealing process by applying heat and pressure. Heat and pressure cause the blister card and the coating film to soften and react with each other to form a compound. Two key types of coatings are used to produce heat-sealed blister cards: water-based heat-sealed coatings and solvent-based heat-sealed coatings. Due to technological advancements, most coatings are capable of sealing both PET and PVC blisters. Solvent-based coatings have better bond strength compared to water-based coatings. However, the difference can be narrowed down by following all guidelines of processing blister packaging.
Blister coatings are hygroscopic in nature i.e. they attract moisture. Presence of moisture in heat-sealing cards causes undesirable air enclosures and bad bonding spots in blister-sealed areas. A wide variety of heat-sealed cards and blisters are available in the global blister coatings market. Depending on application, the card and the blister can be of any shape, size, and thickness; which makes the choice of the blister coating highly technical and challenging.
