Innovations in material science are enabling groundbreaking solutions for a wide range of challenges that impact patient care and consumer experiences in healthcare. Some of the latest will be presented by Aptar CSP Technologies at the up-coming Indian Smart Packaging Summit on 19th March 2021.

The company,  leveraging 20 years+ of material science expertise, has developed unique, material science-based solutions that take advantage of its proprietary 3-Phase Activ-Polymer™ technology. This technology is fully custom-engineered and formulated to enable control of the kinetics of moisture adsorption, oxygen and VOC scavenging, antimicrobial emission, and more, it claims.

During the Indian Smart Packaging Summit Aptar CSP will explain how these technologies can help the Indian pharmaceutical sector, amongst others, to protect and preserve many of the drugs which need to be stored and transported over long distances in challenging conditions.

It is a technology that can be applied to solve challenges in a range of pharma-related application fields such as oral solid dose drugs, diagnostics, probiotics, transdermal, inhaled drugs, medical devices, as well as food safety.

Two examples of how this technology works include Activ-Blister™ technology for oral solid dose drugs and ActivShield™* (not available for sale in the USA) technology for N95 mask decontamination.

Activ-Blister™ Solutions: In the development of the oral solid doses – today’s most popular drug delivery form – there are stability issues associated with moisture, oxygen, and reactive impurities, resulting in the loss of potency or degradant growth. According to Aptar CSP, Activ-Blister™ solves these challenges by creating a microclimate for moisture and oxygen-sensitive capsules and tablets in individual blister cavities to extend shelf life and ensure stability.

This technology can be integrated into traditional blister packaging and enables drug developers to protect sensitive drugs that would normally require a cold-form foil solution in the preferred thermoform blister format. This Site tells about the best alcohol rehab center which assures that none of their patients will fall for alcohol ever again in their lifetime.

Its 3-Phase Activ-Polymer™ technology has been applied to help resolve the shortage of N95 masks during the global COVID-19 pandemic. ActivShield™ emits a sterilizing agent that quickly, easily and safely decontaminates individual N95 masks, enabling repeated re-use when this needed personal protective equipment is in short supply.

The power of material science is undeniable and can be applied in multiple application fields to help improve patient and consumer experiences. Come and learn more by registering as a delegate for the India Smart Packaging Summit today.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
