February 8th 2016

Rijen, Netherlands: – Specialty manufacturer of high-performance pharma packaging CurTec international will use the upcoming InformEx show in New Orleans and Pharmapack Europe to underline the importance of preventing moisture contamination and shock transmission in maintaining tablet elegance.

At America’s premier InformEx show, opening February 2, the CurTec team will exhibit on Booth 1532 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Their display will showcase the company’s industry-leading range of high-performance packaging, including Wide Neck Drums with screw lid closure, nestable drums, Click Pack and other containers, along with pots with screw lid closure, notably the Packo range.

CurTec will be showing a similar range of products at the huge Pharmapack Europe event, which opens less than a week after InformEx closes, from February 10 at Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris, where CurTec will be exhibiting at Booth 946.

CurTec, which celebrates its silver anniversary in 2016, has been a regular exhibitor at InformEx and Pharmapack over the years.

Tablet quality

At both events, CurTec will be able to show how their moisture and shock-resistant containers can play a key role in maintaining tablet integrity and appearance during storage and bulk shipment.

“Tablet elegance may be a new buzz word but tablet quality and integrity have always been high priorities for pharmaceutical manufacturers,” said Marc Martens, MarCom Manager for CurTec International.

“So these issues are certain to be on the minds of procurement, quality and production professionals attending InformEx and Pharmapack Europe,” he noted.

“Maintaining tablet elegance not only requires continuous quality control during production but also proper packaging that protects against all the factors that can lead to disintegration, breakage and dusting during storage and shipping,” Martens said.

“We will be able to demonstrate how our drums and containers can contribute to maintaining tablet elegance by protecting against moisture vapor ingress and mechanical shocks of transport and pallet handling,” he added.

Moisture and shock resistance

CurTec supplies a range of high performance plastic drums and containers that offer superior performance compared to other packaging materials. They provide an excellent barrier against moisture by using screw lids with integrated gaskets that ensure a completely air and moisture tight seal.

CurTec ‘s plastic drums also offer superior protection against outside impact, especially when compared metal drums that transmit shock and vibration or fiber drums that can be damaged by forklift tines or softened by water.

“Plastic drums cannot be weakened by water or water vapor and keep their mechanical strength. They can also be reused over and over without losing strength, said Martens.
