Desiccant packs

Cost-efficient, flat and soft – AdPack® desiccant packs

Our desiccant bags are designed for the optimum protection of moisture-sensitive pharmaceuticals during their entire shelf-life. Thanks to the flat and compact design of the desiccant bags, they take up only little space inside the package. The cost-efficient solution to upgrade your drug packaging to a complete desiccant system.

Our desiccant packs are made of very durable and tear-resistant Tyvek® material, which makes it virtually puncture-proof. The risk of product contamination or leakage during filling and usage is extremely low.

High durability, excellent and fast moisture adsorption

Tyvek® is composed of millions of microfibers. They are bonded together in form of a “maze“, which allows water vapor to pass through the natural pores in the microfiber structure. Once water vapor penetrates the bag, it will be adsorbed by the silica gel or molecular sieve filling. Accordingly, AdPack® is highly permeable and ensures an excellent moisture adsorption.

  • Tyvek® as 100% HDPE, non-dusting and lint-free material provides an excellent combination of durability and breathability
  • The desiccant packs have a distinct shape that eliminates potential confusion with capsules or tablets, thus preventing accidental ingestion

Excellent handling, low migration risk – AdPack®

Our desiccant packs are made with a lap seal which is flat without any layers sticking out. This ensures very good handling with existing filling lines. Many other moisture absorber packs are manufactured with fin seal. This overlapping seam risks to get stuck in the line during filling. Moreover, dust might get stuck underneath the seal.

AdPack® desiccant bags are available as single pack or – on reel, which ensures a clean pack separation through a punch hole in the seal between the packs. Filling trials showed a more reliable pack separation compared with eye-mark cut signs, which results in a cleaner cutting during the filling process.

The desiccant packs are compatible with standard dispensing equipment and filling lines.

Patient safety and regulatory compliance

Our desiccant bags have a distinct shape that eliminates potential confusion with capsules or tablets, thus preventing accidental ingestion. AdPack® complies with all relevant European and FDA regulations for contact with food and drugs and is supported by a Type III DMF (No. 031075). The desiccant packs offer all advantages of a GMP-compliant production, professional risk management, 100% traceability, as well as outstanding quality.
