Kord Products Ltd.'s Thermoforming Division recently launched Kord Pak II, a mechanically sealed plastic blister pack system for consumer products.
Kord, based in Brampton, Ontario, already has sold both the thermoformed blisters and patented mechanical sealing equipment in Canada. Because the seal is mechanical, neither plastic nor card are contaminated, making both recyclable, according to Gerry Docksteader, head of sales.
Kord thermoforms the blisters from PVC, PET and other standard blister materials, at its plants in Brampton and Lugoff, S.C. Though new to North America, the system has been used in Europe for several years, he said. Kord currently imports the licensed sealing equipment from Sweden, but eventually plans to manufacture it in North America, Docksteader said.
