Abstract:

The development and pilot production of a blister sheet and pouch over-wrapper package for the iodine water purification tablet is described. The blister sheets are fabricated from a fluorohalocarbon film containing 12 tablets with each tablet isolated by a heat sealed gridwork. A pressure sensitive label adheres to each blister sheet. This label is fabricated so that use instructions are on one side and a tablet gray color match is on the adhesive side to act as a tablet potency indicator. The pouch overwrapper is fabricated from a laminated film of Mylar- aluminum foil polyolefin and is designed to contain two blister sheets. Advantages of the package over the present 50 tablet glass bottle are presented.
