Clariant Presents Humidity and Oxygen Control Solutions at Pharmtech & Ingredients 2017

  • Healthcare Packaging exhibits for the first time
  • Featuring humidity stabilizers, O2 scavengers and more
  • Solutions protect stability, shelf life of pharmaceuticals

Muttenz, November 21, 2017 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals and its Healthcare Packaging business line are participating in Pharmtech & Ingredients 2017 for the first time and talking to visitors about the full line of controlled-atmosphere packaging solutions. At the show, which is being held November 21-24 at the Crocus Expo IEC in Moscow, Clariant is exhibiting in Booth A139 (Hall 7, Pavilion 2).

Clariant Healthcare Packaging offers a full range of solutions that help maintain the stability and shelf life of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. These include:

  • Equilibrium relative-humidity stabilizers—EQ-Pak® packets, EQ-Can® canisters, EQ-Stopper® caps, and EQ-Bag™ bags—that deliver customized humidity control throughout the drug-product development cycle, from bulk ingredients to finished and bottled pharmaceuticals.
  • Oxygen scavengers, which include canisters, packets that are placed directly into packages or bottles, where they adsorb oxygen and protect products from damage due to oxygen exposure. Oxygen scavengers are humidity-neutral and may be combined with a desiccant that simultaneously adsorbs moisture.
  • Sorb-It® silica gel and Tri-Sorb® molecular sieve desiccant canisters and packets that adsorb water vapor to protect packaged pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and other products from damage due to excess moisture.

By understanding customer needs and expectations, Clariant is able to offer comprehensive and viable solutions that increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve the environmental compatibility of products.
