Barex Replacement Developed for Single Dose Application

ADDISON, IL | Rollprint Packaging Products Inc. has developed a peelable Barex replacement structure targeting pharmaceutical and combination drug single dose applications. Peelable Exponent, the latest addition to the Barex replacement product family, combines science with the consumer’s desire for easy opening.

“Knowing that our customers would need to fully validate any Barex alternatives, we asked, ‘What else would you change now if you had the option for the perfect product?’” Dwane Hahn, VP of sales and marketing. “The most common response received was ‘the desire for an easy opening feature,’ which is what led us to our latest development.”

Rollprint worked with our chemical and packaging engineers and customers to design a package that can hold some of the most challenging chemicals while still being user friendly. A technical team worked with the state-of-the-art R&D laboratory to create and analyze sealant chemistry to find the optimal balance of chemical inertness, hermetic seals, and peelability. With the growth of the senior demographic, the importance of easy-to-open packaging has come to the forefront of customer requirements.

The Exponent family now has four products that can hold a variety of chemicals depending on the chemistry requirements and the customers’ needs including Exponent 2, 3, 4, and now Peelable Exponent. Rollprint has a full range of options for chemically sensitive products, including foil, high barrier, and Clearfoil structures.
