To maintain potency, stability, and shelf life, pharmaceuticals and healthcare products often require highly protective and active packaging.
Desiccant packets are small sachets that can be filled with a variety of sorbent materials and are aimed at protecting healthcare products from degradation due to moisture. Desiccant packets help maintain drug stability and prolong shelf life inside healthcare packaging containers.
Individual sachets are ideal for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products that are susceptible to either chemical or physical degradation due to moisture. Silica gel (silicone dioxide) and molecular sieve (zeolite) are offered depending on the moisture adsorption attributes required for any given application. Activated carbon is used either independently or in combination with silica gel to provide odor adsorption properties.
ECP offers desiccant packets that are fully compliant with US FDA and EU regulations for use in pharmaceutical applications and that comply with US Pharmacopoeia USP <670> standards for pharmaceutical desiccants.
