Huhtamaki launches a first-to-market mono-material blister lidding

In April 2022, Huhtamaki announced the launch of its Push Tab® blister lid, a first-to-market sustainable innovation for the global pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. Huhtamaki and its partner – Klöckner Pentaplast – have developed this innovation in a bid to help the global healthcare and pharmaceutical sector meet their sustainability targets, while encouraging market growth.

The Huhtamaki Push Tab® blister lid is made of mono-material PET (polyethylene terephthalate) to improve recyclability of the packaging, whilst remaining compatible with existing high performance blister packaging lines, without needing modifications or extra investment.

Huhtamaki’s Push Tab ® blister lid has been designed to meet the safety requirements of highly regulated pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging. This innovation will help deliver sustainable packaging solutions for the growing global healthcare industry, whilst maintaining functionality and efficiency.
