Airnov continues to grow portfolio of products produced at Dongguan

  • Dongguan plant goes from strength to strength, offering the local market a reliable source of moisture protecting solutions for healthcare packaging producers
  • Key product ranges include desiccant packets, DRICARD flat desiccants and desiccant tablets, all of which are available in multiple sizes and specifications
  • All products are manufactured in line with key global standards, including those set by the EU, FDA and NMPA

April 27, 2023 – Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, continues to serve the Chinese market with a comprehensive range of products produced locally at its plant in Dongguan, Guangdong.

The facility, which employs 95 people, is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 15378 standards and is also GMP compliant. In addition, Airnov guarantees high quality, complete compliance certification of FDA, EU and NMPA, and a stable supply for customers both in China and around the world thanks to the capabilities and capacity of the Dongguan site.

“China is an exceptionally important and exciting market for Airnov,” commented Victor Lin, Site Manager at Airnov’s Dongguan plant. “With our capabilities at Dongguan expanding all the time, we look forward to demonstrating to stakeholders working across the Chinese market how we can play a key part in developing the healthcare packaging sector.”

Key product lines include a full range of desiccant packets – single packets, strip packets, packets with eyemark, packets with holes and packets with ultrasonic seals. With an exterior made from Tyvek and inner materials including silica gel, molecular sieve, activated carbon, bentonite clay, the range is certified against USP and YBB standards.

Rimless sealed desiccant packets, meanwhile, are designed for use in small pharmaceutical and diagnostics product bottles. These state-of-the-art packets offer high moisture absorbing capacity while at the same time cutting raw materials usage by 25%.

Where packets may be difficult to see or separate from powdered products, flat desiccants offer an ideal solution. Airnov’s Dongguan plant manufactures the company’s DRICARD range of PET/PE film and cardboard solutions that are suitable for narrow and small packing spaces.

Airnov also produces a series of desiccant tablets. Covered by cotton paper, these are inlaid on bottlecaps and offer high moisture absorption to keep enclosed products dry.

For bigger shipments, the Dongguan plant produces a variety of large desiccant bags with an ultrasonically welded ribbon, allowing customers to hang the bags in cargo containers or shipping packaging to protect goods in bulk. With custom printing options, Airnov can tailor these desiccants to any customer’s specific needs.

“A key advantage to our customers here in China is that we can offer all products in multiple sizes to suit their production processes, as well as a speedy turnaround due to our proximity,” added Victor Lin. “We welcome any enquiries – our experts will be on hand to answer questions as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
