Plastics for Healthcare Packaging Market
Plastic healthcare packaging is a method of storing and transporting medications, medical devices, tools, and other pharmaceuticals. It is done to keep healthcare items safe against biological contamination, material damage, and unfavorable external influences. Plastic packaging for sterile products is made from high-density polystyrene, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, or polypropylene, which is further impermeabilized by gas. Several codes, such as the quality management standard (ISO9000) and the pharmaceutical packaging materials standard, are used to ensure the quality of the packaging material (PSO9000). Furthermore, it is classified into three types based on the materials used: main packaging, secondary packaging, and tertiary packaging. Caps, labels, bottles, cap liners, vials, ampoules, blisters, tubes, syringes, and inhalers are examples of primary packaging. Corrugated shippers, cartons, and pallets are all part of the secondary packing system. Cardboard containers, wood pallets, and shrink wrap are examples of tertiary packing.
