Whitepaper: Improve drug safety through low-migration labeling

Ethical and OTC pharma small labels

Ethical and OTC pharma small labels

Ethical and OTC pharma small labels

Over-the-counter (OTC) drug labels present many challenges. The continued growth of OTC medication has meant more plastic bottles and containers, and these are becoming progressively smaller in size. Pharma small labels must deliver low migration, excellent mandrel performance on small vials and compliance with all pharma regulations.
 

Labelling for ethical and OTC packaging

Low migration labels are essential for pharma applications, protecting healthcare products from chemicals in both printing ink and label materials. Prescription drug labels and OTC drug labels must be compatible with different storage conditions and bottle designs - which means avoiding adhesives or resin materials that are not pharma compatible. ISEGA-certified low-migration adhesives from Avery Dennison dramatically reduce the risk of migration for pharma small labels, and that is increasingly important as more plastic pharma vials and containers are used.

Labelling products designed specifically for medical applications must also be consistent. Label converters working in pharma need to be sure that any product chosen will be available in the future - with long notification times for any changes to terms of supply or specifications. This ensures that contracts can continue uninterrupted.

As well as meeting all of the requirements above, pharma small labels need to deliver eyesceptional labelling outcomes, including eyescellent mandrel performance and the ability to cope with difficult substrates.
