Clear, plastic blisters are cost-effective, high visibility, clean, and protective packaging solutions for the retail, electronics, industrial, consumer goods and medical applications. Blisters in combination with paper backer cards can be manufactured from a wide variety of resins based on the application, proposed function and product size.
