Flextrus HiLite – semi-rigid thermoformable base web for healthcare products

Flextrus HiLite is a range of PET-based formable packaging materials that can serve as part of an integral healthcare pack. Different properties within this range include much more than just excellent formability. The range offers transparency, high barrier levels as well as tailor-made sealing features. Advanced wound care, syringes, gloves and catheters are a few examples of medical devices that are packed with our HiLite range but it can be just as well suited for pharmaceuticals or personal care products.

Flextrus HiLite materials are ideally matched and fully compatible with our wide range of Flexpeel® Paper and Flexpeel® Film products in creating, for instance, an integral sterile barrier system. Flextrus is ready to help you match the right product and on-pack design to cover your specific requirements.
