Flextrus NP materials – flexible thermoformable base webs for healthcare products

Flextrus NP is a range of PA-based (polyamide) 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 NP range but it can be just as well suited for pharmaceutical and nutritional powders or personal care products.

Flextrus NP 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.
