Plastics materials for flexible packaging


Solutions for flexible plastic packaging for food, consumer and industrial products.

We have high focus on innovation and technical solutions in processing and products of plastic materials for flexible packaging.

  • Flexible plastic packaging for food, consumer and industrial products is a large and important business. A wide range of films, laminates and packaging applications require specific physical properties for different demands.
  • These properties are influenced by the choice of material type and grade, material recipes and additives, processing, lamination and printing.
  • It becomes increasingly important to understand these relationships vs. requirements for the packers, end users and legislation.
  • We have the competence, equipment and capability required to support the film industry and be a technology partner in material, process and product development, troubleshooting and support.
