Better Breakthroughs
 

From single barrier trays to double sterile barrier systems, we know how important it is to keep your medical products safe and secure prior to being used in a medical setting or operating room. With our variety of thermoforming platforms, we create the highest quality thermoformed trays, blisters and clamshells to support orthopedic implants, renal-tubing sets, surgical instruments and cardiovascular stents. Beyond just thermoforming, we offer custom inline flexographic printing, die cutting and lift labels that include Tyvek® paper and foil in up to 3 colors. These customized options give you a secure way to seal your product and stabilize fragile devices or preventing abrasion during shipping. We work with you to create not just a package, but a packaging solution.

 
Better Design

 

A smart alternative to foam or vinyl protective packaging is our BargerGard® protective polyurethane (TPU) packaging. BargerGard protects those rough and sharp components including catheters, needles, screws, drills and porous coated implants during shipping or prior to medical usage. This nonabrasive TPU material protects finished, polishes and other delicate surfaces from damage including marring of devices, denting and scratching. BargerGard is formed, die cut and welded into various configurations such as liners, containers, pouches and mounting cards that can be designed specifically for your product. BargerGard is compatible with ethylene oxide (EtO), gamma and eBeam sterilization and is available in stock gauges ranging from .005” up to .055”.
