Description

The invention relates to a childproof packaging according to the preamble of claim 1.

The danger of an uncontrolled drug intake is undisputed especially small children, especially when lying around Medicines are increasingly exposed to this potential danger.

Blister packs in particular have been used to package tablets and capsules enforced. The so-called blister packs are widespread, where the tablet from a bowl in the bottom part of the packaging is pressed through a cover film. In other known blister packs a cover film is removed by peeling it off. Yet other blister packs have a notch as a tear-open aid.

Ways already used today to increase child safety The blister packs for tablets and capsules mentioned consist of the Complicating opening by measures that require increased power, such as. stronger push-through foils, increased adhesive strength of peel-off foils or high tear resistance with tear notches.

Packaging that can only be opened with increased effort, are childproof, but can also be a problem for seniors.

Childproof packaging of the type mentioned is known from US-A-5 339 960.

The invention has for its object a child-resistant packaging of the type mentioned at the outset by seniors without difficulty can be opened. Basically it's about packaging to be designed so that it can be combined to open them is required, or that simultaneous or complex movements are carried out Need to become.

A packaging with the features of claim 1 leads to the achievement of the object according to the invention.

Opening the packaging according to the invention requires a combination ability in the sense that at least before pushing the tablet a part exposing the cover film must be loosened.

Advantageously, the bowl of the blister pack protrudes from the bottom part formed level from the outside, in the simplest case the bowl the blister pack penetrates an opening in the bottom part. Is the bottom part made of a deformable material, a bowl can also be made from this molded out and the bowl of the blister packaging arranged in the bowl of the bottom part his.

In a preferred embodiment of the packaging according to the invention the opening part is preferably a line of weakness, in particular a perforation line, tear strips connected to the cover part.

At least two packs can be combined into multi-portion packs be, the individual packages to a strip pack lined up and preferably from the strip pack along one Line of weakness, preferably a line of perforations, can be separated.

For the production of the packaging according to the invention can be used today Production of packaging known rigid, semi-rigid and flexible Materials in the form of sheets, foils, laminates or other laminates a thickness of a few µm to a few mm, for example 8 µm to 3 mm, be used. Examples of foil-like materials are metal foils such as for example aluminum foils. More examples of film-shaped materials are paper, semi-cardboard and cardboard. Plastic-containing ones are also particularly important Foils, e.g. based on polyolefins, such as polyethylene or Polypropylenes, polyamides, polyvinyl chloride, polyesters such as polyalkylene terephthalates and especially polyethylene terephthalate. The plastic ones Films can be monofilms made of plastics, laminates made of two or more Plastic films, laminates of metal and plastic films, laminates of Papers and plastic films or laminates made of paper and metal and Be plastic films. The individual layers of the sheet-like materials can by means of adhesives, laminating adhesives, adhesion promoters and / or through Extrusion coating, coextrusion or lamination etc. fixed to each other become. Suitable plastic films are, for example, non-oriented or axially or biaxially oriented monofilms or laminates of two or several non-oriented or axially or biaxially oriented films Plastics based on polyolefins, such as polyethylenes or polypropylenes, Polyamides, polyvinyl chloride, polyesters such as polyalkylene terephthalates and especially polyethylene terephthalate, cyclo-olefin copolymers (COC) and polychlorotrifluorethylene (PCTFE, brand name ACLAR).

Transparent parts are particularly suitable for the bottom parts of blister packs Plastics with good forming properties such as polyethylene, polypropylene, Cyclo-olefin copolymers, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene terephthalate, polyamide as well as laminates made from the materials mentioned, e.g. made of PVC and polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE) or PVC and PVDC (polyvinyl dichloride). Laminates, for example, are used for non-transparent blister packs from an aluminum foil planked on both sides with a plastic foil with the for example construction polyamide / aluminum / PVC or pigmented Plastic films used. The cover film is usually an aluminum film an example thickness of 20 microns, which is painted and / or with a Heat seal lacquer can be coated.

All of the above-mentioned sheet-like materials such as paper, semi-cardboard, cardboard and plastic films in the form of monofilms, laminates, etc. can have at least one further continuous layer of sputtered or vacuum-deposited ceramic materials with a thickness of about 5 to 500 nm (nanometers) , for example Al 2 O 3 or SiO x , where x is a number between 1.5 and 2. These layers of ceramic materials have barrier properties and prevent the diffusion of gases and water vapor through the packaging.

Further advantages, features and details of the invention result from the following description of preferred exemplary embodiments and from the drawing; this shows schematically in

- Fig. 1
a longitudinal section through a blister pack with outer packaging;
- Fig. 2
a plan view of the open outer packaging of Figure 1 in viewing direction y.
- Fig. 3
a longitudinal section through the partially opened blister pack with outer packaging of Fig. 1;
- Fig. 4
a longitudinal section through the partially opened blister pack with outer packaging of Fig. 3 after a further opening step.

A repackaging shown in FIGS. 1 to 4 120 for a blister pack 122 of substantially strip-shaped Shape is constructed in three layers, with a bottom part 124, an overlying Intermediate part 126 and a cover part lying on the intermediate part 126 128. Bottom part 124 and cover part 128 are, for example, foils Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the intermediate part 126 made of cardboard. The blister pack 122 - in the example shown a one-portion pack for one Tablet 130 - has a bottom portion 132 with one molded out of it Cup 134 for receiving the tablet 130 and one with the bottom part 132 sealed or glued cover film 136 made of aluminum, for example on. The cup 134 of the blister pack 122 penetrates the circumference of the Cups 134 adapted openings 138 and 140 in the intermediate part 126 and bottom part 124 and protrudes outward from the bottom part 124 of the outer packaging 120 from. The bottom part 132 of the blister pack 122 lies between the intermediate part 126 of the outer packaging 120 on the inside and is at least partially with it bonded. Instead of the bottom opening 140 - if the material allows it - can a cup is also formed from the bottom part 124, i.e. the Bowl 134 of blister pack 122 would in this case be from the bowl in the bottom part 124 added.

As shown in FIG. 2, there is a first opening tab 142 in the intermediate part 126 integrated and arranged over a first line of weakness or linear first perforations 144 releasable from the intermediate part 126. Within the first opening tab 142 and also integrated in the intermediate part 126 is a second Opening tab 146, which has a second line of weakness or linear arranged second perforations 148 detachable from the first opening tab 142 is. The two perforation lines 144, 148 are through one Intermediate web 156 separated from each other.

Edge parts of the bottom part 124, intermediate part 126 and cover part 128 are at least partially glued to each other. Cover part 128 is also included the intermediate web lying between the two perforation lines 144, 146 156 glued, the cover part 128 also one with the first perforation line 144 in the intermediate part 126 has a congruent perforation line.

To remove the tablet 130, the first opening tab 142 is first separated from intermediate part 126 along its first perforation line 144 and by means of an opening movement carried out in the direction of arrow H from the intermediate part 126 lifted off. In this position, the second opening tab 146 separated along the second perforation line 148 and out of the first opening tab 142 can be extracted. In this process, the lidding film 136 of the blister pack 122 exposed, so that in this open position the tablet 130 by finger pressure on the cup 134 in the direction of arrow K. the cover film 136 are pushed through and ejected.
