An essential factor when dealing with effervescent tablets is maintaining a balanced humidity. Moisture can leak into packaging causing effervescent tablets to discolor, dissolve too early, and/or lose effectiveness.
With Aptar CSP’s Activ-Polymer™ technology, moisture is controlled and product effectiveness is preserved. Our Activ-Polymer™ system is the ingenuity behind our Activ-Vial™ portfolio, which is commonly used by leaders in the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries. Aptar CSP Technologies, Inc. has advanced manufacturing methods that ensure moisture-tight containers with an integrated desiccated plastic sleeve that sets the industry standard for desiccant vials and bottles. These vials are designed to protect the product inside. Incorporating desiccant helps protect the active ingredients
in effervescent tablets.
Unlike other packaging solutions, where desiccant is found only on the small surface of the lid, Aptar CSP Technologies offers a product where the tablets are completely surrounded by a desiccated sleeve. Other market solutions use small desiccant granules; however, these particles can accidentally mix with the tablets and could potentially be ingested by the consumer. A desiccated sleeve prevents this from happening and enhances safety for potential consumers.
