The world's first, and still the best, recyclable blister packaging

At kp, we believe in backing up our claims of sustainabity with action.  This led us to the innovation of kpNext® R1 pharmaceutical blister films.  They are the world's first, certified recyclable blister film.  When used with Huhtamaki's Push Tab® lid film, the entire blister package may be recycled directly to the RIC 1, PET recycling stream.!
