Honeywell Healthcare and Packaging has increased the price for its Aclar films of 4.2 per cent on average, effective on all shipments on or after January 1, 2015. This increase covers Aclar films for healthcare and pharmaceutical blister packaging applications. The company cited increasing costs of raw material and other operating expenses as the reasons for this price increase.
Aclar films are based on poly-chloro-tri-fluoro-ethylene (PCTFE) fluoropolymer technology and have excellent moisture barrier and chemical stability properties. Aclar thermoformable films are used in a broad range of markets including originator and generic pharmaceutical, over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical and animal health packaging.
