Pharmaceutical products such as effervescent tablets are normally packed into rigid tubes made of plastic material. This kind of tubes are loaded as multiples into cartons for commercialization, together with patient’ information leaflet.
Considering this type of format, cartons needs to be made with sturdy cardboard or even corrugated cardboard depending on the size and amount of the tubes.
Effervescent tablets are renowned to be fragile, therefore the handling of the tubes must be controlled, gentle and stable throughout the whole packaging process.
This kind of tubes are also largely used for nutraceutical applications and marketed in large scale-distribution as multiple standing tubes into ecotrays, to be sold singularly without carton.
