Medical and Pharmaceutical Barrier Packaging

Honeywell’s medical and pharmaceutical packaging solutions protect the efficacy of life-saving medications and enable drug delivery around the world, enhancing the lives of patients globally.

Honeywell’s Aclar® film was developed in collaboration with medical, pharmaceutical, and other Med Tech companies to ensure peak barrier packaging performance. We are a proven packaging partner ready to support clients throughout all packaging phases, from design through production and launch. Honeywell offers many different types of medication barrier film . 

Aclar® film achieves the highest moisture barrier of any clear thermoplastic film, while processing within the same range as other thermoforming films. Whether you require mid, high, or ultra-high moisture barrier, there is an Aclar product available to provide the optimum balance of performance and economics. In addition, Hydroblock barrier film offers an industrial-grade moisture barrier with unsurpassed capabilities compared to other traditional clear barrier films used in non-food and non-pharma applications.
