Airnov to Showcase Super-Small, Sustainable Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets at API China

Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, is unveiling a new product for the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries at the API China tradeshow in the form of Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets.

Welded together using uncoated Tyvek®, these sustainable packets offer greater moisture absorbing capacity while at the same time cutting raw materials usage by 25 percent.

The packets can be produced in single units at extremely small sizes – the smallest being just 19×25 millimeters and 0.5 grams in weight and carrying high vertical and horizontal tear strength properties.

The Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets are primarily designed for use in small pharmaceutical and diagnostics product bottles and can also be utilized in medical devices and food packaging applications.

“These state-of-the-art packets using new desiccant sealing techniques have been developed by our team at Airnov’s Dongguan plant, and are the result of close consultation with our customers in these sectors,” said Albert Zhao, head of sales region APAC and operation China, Airnov. “A key demand was to create a solution that can drop into bottles and lie flat, as opposed to lining the side of the packaging. This saves space before the bottle is filled with our customer’s product.”

The Dongguan plant specializes in the manufacture of a full range of high-quality desiccant packets, chiefly for customers in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and food industries but also for a range of complementary active packaging products.

Because of its ultra-small size, the Rimless Moisture Absorbing Packets could also be inserted into medicine bottles post-production. It is small enough to insert through the bottleneck, helping to reduce complexity and add speed to the manufacturing and assembly process.

Airnov will be joined by more than 1,500 fellow exhibitors showcasing its products to over 60,000 visitors at the event, which is being hosted at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou over three days (May 26-28).
