kpNext - Tomorrow is finally here, and it’s crystal clear

Klöckner Pentaplast (kp), a leading global manufacturer of high barrier protective packaging solutions with industry-leading use of recycled content material, has launched kpNext, its first-to-market innovation in recyclable PET blister films. kpNext is the only PET recyclable blister that is completely compatible on pharmaceutical manufacturing form, fill and seal equipment.

kp has a rich history of innovative pharmaceutical blister packaging solutions and kpNextׄ is the next step of that evolution. Not only is kpNext the only PET film designed to be a recyclable blister package, but it does not come at the expense of the manufacturing process. Pharmaceutical companies and converters can utilise kpNext on their existing form, fill and seal lines with no loss of line speed or a need to retool. It truly is the best of both worlds, a sustainable yet functional solution.

From consumers to global brands to governments, the demand for recyclable packaging has never been higher. kpNext answers those calls. It is produced from a globally recyclable material and is designed to be recycled in the RIC (resin identification code) #1 PET stream.

Daniel Stagnaro, Head of Technology stated: “Current pharmaceutical blister packaging is classified as RIC #7, produced from a multi material structure, which is not recyclable and therefore is disposed in a landfill or incinerated. Major pharmaceutical companies have been challenging blister manufacturers for a solution that is responsible and recyclable. kp has answered those challenges with kpNext.”

kpNext is the culmination of three years’ worth of research and development. Utilising its kp i.center, an application development lab located in Charlottesville, VA, kp scientists, chemists and technical teams have worked on developing the technology to where it is today: A blister film designed to be fully recyclable and a plug & play solution on existing pharmaceutical lines.
