Film for Flexible Packaging

Our knowledgeable engineers work with customers to successfully design unique and valuable film solutions for any market. We strive to delight demanding end users through innovative technology and consistent delivery of reliable barrier films.

Our Approach to Film

Designed for Protection

We extrude, laminate, and deliver printed barrier film designed to meet your product specifications. Our wide range of solutions includes everything from one- to nine-layer films, as well as recyclable, monomaterial structures.

  • Our films are designed with focus on optimized functionality and fit for sealing to fitments.
  • Our films are manufactured to protect your product and withstand the rigors of difficult supply chains.
  • Our vertical integration and global footprint ensure competitive pricing and supply contingencies.
  • Our Industry 4.0 approach to manufacturing uses data, automation, and robotization wherever possible.

Mono-Material:

We focus on design for the circular economy. Producing monomaterial film enables the finished packaging to be more-easily recycled and thus, have value after their initial lifespan.

Fit-For-Purpose:

Heavy, rigid packaging formats require more energy to produce, transport, and store. Because flexible packaging has the capability of being downgauged to an ideal, lightweight film structure, the resulting environmental scores can be optimized.

Environmentally-Conscious:

Flexible film—and the packaging it helps create—often has less process and delivery waste than most rigid containers. The resulting greenhouse gas emissions are often favorable for flexible.

Film Design for the Circular Future

Protection

Barrier film and flex-crack resistance technology, combined with our leading dispensing systems, provides maximum protection for both the product and end user.

Sealability Icon

Sealability

Our film range includes products which can fit your equipment’s preferred sealing method. From heat, to ultra-sonic, to next-generation, energy-efficient methods.

Recycle Icon

Recyclable

Whenever possible, our films are designed to have simple, mono-material construction to aid in recyclability of finished packaging.

Recyclable Film Technology

Printing Options

We surface-print films using a solvent-free ink.

Solventless Lamination

Eliminating solvents from the lamination process eliminates related greenhouse gas emissions.

Co-Extruded Films

By eliminating lamination from some of our structures, we use less energy and chemicals during film production. These structures are simpler, aiding in recyclability.

Lightweight Structures

By using fewer base materials, we can save raw materials throughout the supply chain.

Eliminate Aluminum

Barrier technology in plastics has progressed to a point where we no longer need to incorporate environmentally-costly metals.
