Mitsui Chemicals in Collaboration with Bilcare Introduces Chemipearl™ XSP in India: New High Performance Heat Seal Coating Based on Water Based Technology for Pharmaceutical Blister Packaging


TOKYO, Japan

Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (TOKYO: 4183; President&CEO: Tsutomu Tannowa) announced the successful development of XSP series of ChemipearlTM which is a high performance “Water-based Heat Seal Coating” for pharmaceutical blister packaging. ChemipearlTM XSP will provide an environment friendly alternative for existing solvent based heat seal coatings, which contain around 70-80% of organic solvent. In India, most of the converting companies which produce coated aluminum lid foil release the solvent directly to open air, causing environment pollution. ChemipearlTM XSP will help converting companies to reduce the VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) emission significantly and indirectly help pharmaceutical companies to reduce their carbon footprints and move towards sustainable packaging for a better society.
