Push Tab® paper features add_circle_outline

As pioneers in the industry, Huhtamaki together with Syntegon is launching an environmentally friendly, paper-based blister solution. Special barrier coatings on certified renewable paper protect the product from WVTR. Excellent sealing properties and easy push-through functionality make Push Tab® paper a sustainable alternative to traditional aluminum / PVC blisters.


Bottom and lidding material can be printed on. Embossing enables braille and additional design options on the blister, e.g. to highlight brand logos.

Push Tab® paper offers an alternative to traditional blister packaging through its unique paper touch and feel - sustainability noticeable to experts and consumers alike.

Suitable for a wide variety of applications, e.g. nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals or confectionery (e.g. chewing gums).

Syntegon TPU1000 for optimal maschine runability

The TPU1000 form, fill and seal system is a real trendsetter for a fully automated production of shaped paper pods – it uses the exquisite stretchability of specifically designed papers, to create unique, eye-catching portion packs (called shaped paper pods) with as little plastic as possible.

It addresses the current sustainability and convenience trends in equal measure. This opinion is shared by the German Packaging Institute (dvi), who awarded the TPU1000 the German Packaging Prize in the category “Packaging Machines”.
