Clamshells and blisters

Clamshells and blisters are transparent thermoformed packaging that protect and display your products. Their design and closure system can give the best protection against in-store theft.

Our mission could be to only design and produce the thermoformed packaging, but we could also provide the insert and take charge of sealing and conditioning.

Clamshells (type 1):

You will find lots of standardised rectangular clamshells on the market that are available on stock and are sold from common packaging experts.

If these standardised clamshells aren’t what you need, AMANDIS would be happy to design a clamshell for you and that will fit perfectly to your product, even for smaller volumes of some thousands of pieces.

Clamshells (type 1) can have very simple geometrical shapes: rectangular, semi-cylindrical or semi-spherical. If they are made of PVC, GAG or PETG, they can be welded with a high frequency welding machine.

Clamshells (type 2):

A clamshell (type 2) is an attractive solution for volumes of up to some tens of thousands of pieces. It gives you a highly sophisticated packaging that will be available on place and can be used only once you need them, in particular when your products are ready for delivery. This way, you have a better control over the volume of your stock of finished products while staying extremely quick and easy to use.

Clamshells with at least two pieces makes your packaging look very professional while showcasing your product very well and minimising in-store theft possibilities. If they are made of PVC, GAG or PETG, they can also be welded with high frequency welding machine.

HF blisters:

A HF blister (sealed with high-frequency) is a thermoformed packaging that is made of PVC, GAG or PETG and that is welded on an insert that can be either printed or not.

Your products, and eventually your documents, are placed in special cavities on the front blister. Then, your blister is welded and cut.

Thermic blisters:

A thermic blister (sealed with heat) is a thermoformed packaging that either only covers your product (Figure B) other that covers the whole cardboard (Figure A). This thermic blister is welded on this cardboard which has been coated with a layer of a special seal coating. After elevating the temperature, this special coating will weld the blister to the cardboard.

This thermoformed piece can be made of PVC, APET, PETG or PLA.
