Medical Mounting Cards

Medical mounting cards are used to position and secure medical instruments and devices within a sterile barrier package to ensure sterility throughout the supply chain.

UFP MedTech’s mounting cards, also known as backer cards, HDPE cards, die cut inserts, or insert cards, are designed to safely and securely hold medical instruments and devices utilizing die cut retainment features such as tabs, loops, and straps. Manufactured from thin, lightweight high-density polyethylene (HDPE), mounting cards are a cost-effective and space saving packaging alternative to trays and other commonly used medical packaging options.

Due to their thin, flat, flexible design, mounting cards pair easily with Poly/Tyvek pouches to provide a double barrier packaging system.

With extensive design knowledge and experience, combined with tightly controlled quality management systems and ISO Class 7 and ISO Class 8 cleanrooms production environments, we can provide you with a packaging solution to meet your specific requirements.

For medical devices that may require an extra level of sterile barrier protection, our FlexShield® thermoplastic polyurethane film (TPU) medical packaging provides outstanding puncture and abrasion resistance when paired with mounting cards.
