Barrier Foils

Our barrier foils and clear barrier laminates are available in a variety of pouches, bags and roll stock formats for use in the packaging of pharmaceutical and healthcare products as well as medical devices and diagnostic test kits.

Key Attributes Include:
- Provides an excellent barrier against moisture vapour, gaseous, UV or malodorous penetration which can be further reduced by
use of our desiccant plastic for H2O and O2 scavenging plastic systems.
- Maintains organoleptic properties and preserves taste, odour & colour.
- Control/maintenance of residual headspace moisture vapour & oxygen levels.
- Our materials comply with current legislation for pharmaceutical & medical contact.
- Our flexible barrier foil is a more cost effective solution for transit and storage compared with other packaging media.

The barrier materials can be made in a variety of formats including peelable or fully welded, easy open, printed or plain, clear or white finishes or can be supplied in roll stock for flowrap or form fill seal applications

SuperDrySorb™ is a range of dissolving superabsorbent sachets. Our liquid absorbers are ideal for soaking up and solidifying harmful spills or liquid waste products. These liquid absorbers are designed to act quickly so as to minimise spillage or risk of spillage. SuperDrySorb™ liquid absorbers contain a super absorbent polymer powder and each sachet can absorb up to 400 times its own weight in liquid.

SuperDrySorb™ Sachet Applications:
Aqueous test kits
Colostomy bags
Bio hazardous fluids
Aqueous medical specimens held in various containers

SuperDrySorb™ Sachet Advantages:

Low cost, pharmaceutical quality
Rapid action on contact with liquid
It solidifies and protects against cross contamination, resulting in safer handling
Benefits safer handling of hazardous fluids

SuperDrySorb™ Fabric:

Super absorbent laminate sheets are a fiber-based paper, bonded with super absorbent immobilizing powder. They offer the same fluid control protection as the pouches and are used in areas where space is at a premium. Our super absorbent sheets offer effective absorption of fluid and can be cut to fit any size or shape of medical container.

SuperDrySorb ™ Fabric Applications:
- In theatre soaker mats
- Medical red waste containers
- Kick bucket liners
- Post surgical bed sheets
- Specimen shipping containers
- Lab tray soakers
- Colostomy soakers
- Blood and urine soaker

Molecular Sieve Bags

SuperSiv™ molecular sieve bags are filled with ultra high quality molecular sieve beads and offer the user the opportunity to reduce the relative humidity of any sealed headspace right down to 0% RH (as opposed the 5% RH end-point that you can achieve with silica gel). Our molecular sieve bags are constructed from tyvek and can be filled with 3A, 4A, 5A or 10A (aka 13X) molecular sieve beads, depending on your wishes.

SuperSiv™ Performance Characteristics
- High rates of adsorption at low relative humidities
- Wide temperature range of adsorption
- Retains physical shape and size even when saturated
- Low dust
- Chemically inert and non-toxic

Why use SuperSiv™Molecular Sieve Bags instead of Silica Gel?
SuperSiv™ is a desiccant just like silica gel, but unlike silica gel it is far more effective at lower relative humidities . Typically you should consider using SuperSiv™ in preference to silica gel products such as SuperDryPak™ at humidities less than 30%. You should definitely use SuperSiv™ at relative humidities lower than 5%, as Silica Gel will be ineffective.

Please note that in the 5-30% humidity bracket, there will be a trade off between the advantage of SuperSiv™ with its rapid and aggressive uptake of moisture, and SuperDryPak™ with its lower affinity for moisture, but with its higher total moisture capacity.

Typically, silica gel will adsorb at least 35% of its own weight in moisture, whereas SuperSiv™ will adsorb a maximum of 22%.

Ultimately which product you use will depend on a number of factors such as; how often you can afford to change the desiccant component and how much physical space there is in your product’s packaging. There is no right or wrong answer here, only the correct solution for your specific needs.

About us

Company details

Baltimore Innovations is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of moisture control packaging to the medical industry. Our products include:

- Silica Gel Desiccants

- Aluminium barrier foil bags and Rolls

- Desiccant Plastics; which can be manufactured in different shapes

- Liquid Absorbers; for blood and urine and other hospital waste liquids

- Pre-formed Medical Device pouches, which already include a desiccant

- Ice Sheets a cost effective solution for keeping temperature sensitive products chilled during  distribution

As an ISO 9001 company, we pride ourselves on our unrivalled technical support, customer service and product quality. We can provide pre-manufactured products for low volume manufacturing as well as raw materials for large-scale automated production.


SuperDryPak™ Silica Gel Desiccant Sachets: Absorb atmospheric humidity to prevent moisture damage. Continuous Strips are available to automate the dispensing of sachets into an automatic production line.

Indicating Silica Gel Desiccant Sachets: Provides a clear and distinct colour change as it absorbs moisture.

SuperSiv™ Molecular Sieve Desiccant sachets: These desiccant bags are capable of reducing the relative humidity right down to 0%.

Desiccant Plastic Activ-Films® & Activ-Vials®. A Unique Solution: Desiccants, Molecular Sieves, and Silica Gels can now be integrated directly into plastic compounds. They can be moulded or extruded into any shape via any type of plastic manufacturing technology. They eliminate the cost of inserting components into a package. They can be seamlessly integrated into primary or secondary packaging.

They also eliminate the risk that consumers will discard the desiccant component.

SUPERDRY-HI ™ Humidity Indicator Cards. Provide a low cost method of indicating humidity conditions and give customers the ability to see if humidity within the package is approaching damaging levels .

SuperDrySorb™ Liquid Absorbers. Ideal for soaking up and solidifying harmful spills or liquid waste products.

SuperDryFoil™ Desiccant Pouches. Incorporates a desiccant directly into foil laminate barrier bags and pouches, eliminating the need for equipment, separate costly sourcing, additional handling and placement, plus the inspection of other desiccant product like beads, sachets, canisters, lozenges, etc., and this combination is a very cost-effective and innovative solution.

Barrier Foil laminates – Supplied on Rolls and/or as “ready-made” pouches to provide a barrier against moisture vapour, gaseous, UV or malodorous penetration. Available printed in any size and various formats such as stand up with bottom gussets, with tear notches, zip locks or even spouts for pouring liquids.
