Aclar UltRx 2000 (2.00 Mil/51 μm)

Aclar® UltRx 2000 is a 2.00 mil (51 µm) PCTFE homopolymer, high performance barrier film for the pharmaceutical and medical markets. It thermoforms well on conventional blister packaging equipment and provides the best barrier of any clear film.

Overview
Aclar® UltRx 2000 is a 2.00 mil (51 µm) PCTFE homopolymer, high performance barrier film for the pharmaceutical and medical markets. It thermoforms well on conventional blister packaging equipment and provides the best barrier of any clear film. Aclar is a clear, poly-chloro-tri-fluoro-ethylene (PCTFE) pharmaceutical packaging film for blister packaging. With Aclar’s superior moisture barrier, your product is protected for worldwide distribution, including Zone 4 tropical locations. All Aclar fluoropolymer films comply with FDA regulation #21 CFR 177.1380, Drug Master File #1578.With Aclar film, you can dial in the exact properties you need from several product grades so you have the optimum balance of performance and economics. When you also need oxygen and/or light barrier protection, Aclar film can be laminated to a wide range of substrates.Honeywell has been supporting the pharmaceutical industry with Aclar film for more than 40 years.Aclar high and ultra-high barrier films are usually selected for the most demanding applications, such as high moisture sensitivity or the need to pass the accelerated stability trials as set forth by ICH.
