Packaging How Plastic Manufacturers Make Trays for Any Product
Not all plastic packaging is for retail purposes, and it doesn’t always have to be made out of a certain type of synthetic. Trays are the perfect example of both of these things—they can be made from any one of a variety of plastics, and they are generally used outside of the retail consumer goods market. Trays keep your product safe and secure while maintaining a cost-efficiency.
Packaging for Pharmaceuticals
Medical and pharmaceutical packaging represents a large market for plastic trays. This type of packaging is cost-effective, disposable, lightweight and secure, making it perfect for gripping disposable, one-time-use products like disposable syringes. They allow the product to lay either flat or on its side without being disturbed or coming loose, enabling you to store your product however you see fit. And because they are typically custom fit, you know that your product is always tightly held and secure inside the tray, no matter how lightweight the plastic.
When considering plastic trays from your plastic manufacturer, remember the potential disadvantages, which are few. For example, depending on the mold required to hold your product securely, you may not be able to actually see the product itself in full—at least half of it is likely to be obscured by the tray. It may also be less cost-effective than blister packaging, but that is because it is so secure. While blister packaging may require a backing card, trays are form-fitted to keep your product secure without a backing.
Working with a Plastic Manufacturer
Trays are almost exclusively custom-fitted packaging solutions, so whatever your product, you will likely have to consult with a plastic manufacturer to develop an appropriate prototype. More often than not, though, this is a positive occurence. Trays can be made out of a wide variety of plastics depending on how strong they have to be and the shape they have to take, so by ordering custom trays, you can secure your product rather economically.
