Plastic tubes & desiccant stoppers

Rigid plastic tubes & desiccant stoppers form the ideal package to protect drugs and nutraceuticals – particularly effervescent tablets, chewables or lozenges – from moisture degradation and breakage, as well as extend brand equity. It limits moisture ingress via proper control of MVTR (Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate), while simultaneously adsorbing moisture with desiccant stopper.

Several standard features are available for stoppers such as tamper evident, spiral or half-spiral, easy-opening, or flip-top.  As needed, Airnov’s team and its customers collaborate on specific needs to develop new concepts, applying a strict stage gate process with a unique goal of improving end-consumer experience.
