Bilcare Aqua|Ba®

Bilcare’s AquaBa® pharmaceutical blister film provides a premium barrier without a premium price. AquaBa® combines Bilcare’s proprietary calendered PVC film, coated with Super B (PVDC) aqueous coating. This combination provides an ultra-high water vapor and oxygen barrier film that can be easily processed on all high performance blister lines. This next generation PVDC coating provides similar barrier properties to Aclar®. Coated onto Bilcare’s proprietary PVC film for optimum thermoforming, superior flex-crack resistance and layflat, Bilcare’s high barrier, cost effective AquaBa® film is the perfect choice for sensitive pharmaceuticals in some of the world’s most extreme climatic conditions.

Available in a triplex (TX) or sandwiched (SW) structure, Bilcare’s AquaBa® can be supplied in various opaque or transparent colors with improved UV-protection.

Looking to switch? Bilcare Research provides a variety of added value services to ease the transition away from lower performing films while maintaining vital barrier properties.
