With the expansion of the pharmaceutical industry in recent times, and the role of the industry in providing primary support for health care becoming more important than ever, the necessity of transporting medicines over long distances has increased manifold. Delivery of medicines in a sound condition, unaffected by the elements of weather or rough handling, is a critical component of the industry’s operations. Similarly, the transport and handling of intermediate Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) in the apt condition is essential for the manufacturing of high end pharmaceutical drugs. In such a scenario, there is a persistent need for packaging material that can withstand all this and much while preserving the high quality of the pharmaceutical drug during its transportation.
LDPE Bag for Pharmaceutical and API Packaging
Bags made of Low Density Poly Ethylene (LDPE) are ideal to meet these needs at an affordable cost. Low Density Poly Ethylene is essentially a long chain polymer made from Ethylene gas through a chemical reaction called polymerization that is performed under high pressure. The material can withstand high ambient temperatures and is highly flexible. It is light weight and comes in various shapes and sizes as well as thicknesses, highly desirable properties for any material intended for packaging uses. LDPE offers a distinct advantage to users by providing a moisture free environment, extending shelf life of the stored good. Such mechanical properties are essential requirements for the pharmaceutical industry, since many bulk drugs are sensitive to changes in the ambient environment.
LDPE is chemically inert to a wide variety of chemicals, including concentrated and diluted acids, esters, bases, ketones and aldehydes and alcohols. Hence LDPE Bags for Pharma Packaging are a given choice for packaging and storing of bulk drugs. This allows consistency in the quality of the delivered product, enabling the production of high quality finished goods like capsules and tablets.
LDPE Bag for API are also a natural option, especially when transporting them in powdered, bead or any other form. With the necessary polymer thickness, LDPE is also useful in keeping away APIs from chemical and/or biological hazards. LDPE can be provided in several thicknesses based on the requirements particular to the product being transported and handled.
