Where the medical industry meets packaging industry.
In 1987 the company started production under the name PÜRKİM Ltd. and in 1994 took the name Arpak Paketleme Malzemeleri San.ve Tic.A.Ş., specialising in printing and slicing of two important packaging materials for the medical industry.
The foil used for packaging of disposal syringes, catheters, surgery disposables and similar products are produced from Arjo Wiggins papers. Printing is done according to design stated by the customer. The paper has the property to be sterilised with EO gas, both sides of the paper can be printed and both ability to bond PS type packaging foils. Under sterilisation with EO gas, the pores of the paper become larger, allowing transfer of the gas in packed material.
The product, blister type aluminium foil, is used for packaging of pills of different types. One side of the aluminium foil is treated with heat seal lacquer, the other side contains the printing of the name of product. The printed side is coated with suitable primer and top-coat lacquer. The blister foil can be heat sealed at 250 °C without any damage to the printing.

Sealing is done with a pressure plate applying a pressure of 40kg/sec. resulting in peeling strength of 9 N/15 mm. The protective lacquer on printing prevents the printing from peeling off and increases its heat resistance above 200 C. The colour of the print and size of the reels are done according to customer specifications, the low cost of cliché in Flexographic printing system enables quick change in design of printing.
