Evertis’ Evercare™ brand is created to be a leading provider of specialty and innovative medical-grade films designed to provide superior performance and support regulatory compliance to the healthcare market. Evercare is built on over 65 years of trusted technical Evertis experience in developing PET and PETG films for regulated applications that meet sustainability credentials, and now compliant in meeting the rigorous needs of the healthcare industry.

Evercare sits in a vertically integrated Group that delivers a unique value proposition to healthcare customers in terms of innovation, sustainability and supply chain security. As film converters for packaging, Evertis is integrated with Selenis, a premium supplier of innovative copolyesters resins with solutions specifically developed and certified for the medical value chain to further support patient safety. As a Group, Evercare fully understands and plays its part in circularity whilst reducing the carbon footprint of its products.

Evercare PET and PETG drop-in solutions offer performance and sustainability advantages when compared to other materials. Their films facilitate the thermoforming process, provide improved mechanical and optical properties, and have a better resistance to sterilization. Manufactured in strict compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards and supporting regulatory compliance needs, Evercare films are offered with declarations, such as ISO10993, USP661.1, ISO11607, as well as change notification.

Gonzalo Lopez-Oleaga, Evertis Europe Deputy CEO, said, “This is another key milestone in the journey of our Group of businesses. As innovators and thought leaders in polyester-based materials, we are now positioned to help healthcare companies meet their sustainability packaging goals, now and into the future. Behind Evercare, we have made large investments operationally, in technology and, most importantly, GMP manufacturing supported by full certifications to service this market.”

Similar to other industries, the healthcare packaging industry faces the challenges of improving sustainability. This is why the Evercare product range not only offers plug and play PET based solutions, but also takes advantage of backward integration and in-house innovation in chemical recycling to include grades with up to 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. This PCR option comes with the same quality and regulatory standards, and it represents a great opportunity to lower carbon footprint.

Casimiro Sacchetti, CSO Evertis Americas, said: “Evercare is an exciting and unique offering for the healthcare market. It’s the coming together of experience, deep technical knowledge underpinned by a truly integrated, vertical operational set-up from resin production to extrusion of medical-grade films. With the innovative Evercare film range, we are actively supporting the move of our medical and pharmaceutical customers towards safe and eco-friendly packaging solutions.”
