POLIFILM is awarded the WorldStar Packaging Award
Room temperature laminating film is honoured 3 times
After receiving two national packaging awards in Israel (Israel Star) and Germany (German Packaging Award, Special Gold Award), the joint product development of the POLIFILM companies, POLEG and POLIFILM EXTRUSION, has now also convinced the international level of experts. The room-temperature-laminating film received the Worldstar Packaging Award in the category Packaging Materials and Components.
About the film solution
The room-temperature-laminating polyolefine (PE or PP) film is intended to open up new processing fields for laminators, online printers, as well as label producers. The film creates permanent and stable composites, used for instance to produce stand-up pouches, without thermal lamination or adhesive connection, thereby simplifying the process considerably. Instead of heat or adhesive the film bonding relies on a chemically-mechanically connection activated by a Corona treatment.
From an economic point of view, this reduces the complexity of the processing procedure, the necessary investment of laminating tooling as well as the time-to-market. At the same time sustainable benefits are offered, like less energy consumption and therefore less CO2-emissions, optimized recyclability of the packaging as no non-polyolefine glue is added.
