Striving to protect product aroma and scent against external contamination, Mondi Consumer Packaging promoted its latest industrial barrier film solutions at PACK EXPO Las Vegas on September 25-27, 2017. Mondi’s highlights include a range of pre-formed tubes and bags that provide greater product protection and improved material stability. Mondi is an international packaging and paper group.
The North American audience can put the films’ mechanical properties to the test and find out how to benefit from Mondi’s blown film extrusion technology. Comprising multilayer films, including a Nylon (PA) or EVOH layer in the center, Mondi barrier film creates an almost impenetrable barrier for moisture, scent or gas. Additionally, this stronger structure makes the material more durable and tighter than conventional sealed films, which cannot provide the same level of stability.
As a result, food, cosmetic, agricultural and chemistry products can enjoy a much higher level of product protection than previously possible thanks to an extended shelf life. Moreover, the films are available in two different versions. The first one is a pre-formed tube with side gussets, which is ideal for automated form, fill and sealing production in a wide variety of formats from 1 pound up to 50 pounds. The film tubes can be printed on in as many as six colors. The solution also provides added value: a special anti-slip embossing simplifies palletization of the product. The second version of the ultra-strong and protective films can be used for pre-formed bags that require manual filling. Being resistant to flex-cracks, the integrity of these bags is comparable to aluminum. Consequently, the increased product protection and high material quality makes these films particularly appealing for the American pet food and pharmaceutical markets.
Brand differentiation can be increased by printing on the bags with up to six colors.
