Multi-Plastics Inc., Lewis Center, OH, USA, has added paper and film-faced pouch materials to its mono-web flexible packaging product line. As narrow web flexographic converters continue to diversify and expand into flexible packaging, they now have an additional source and choice for these materials at a competitive cost and within quick lead times, the company says.
The stocked C1S paper-faced structure under product code 29PP has a LDPE sealant layer and is available in two basic weights. This product mimics most PPFP’s that are traditionally seen in the market and the industry-standard construction method works across a variety of dry or wet ingredients.
The 4WCP (white) and 4SCP (silver) are film-faced structures with strong printability, but vary from the mainstream sealant of choice due to the manufacturer’s ability to create specialized sealants without additional costs. The co-extrusion process allows Multi-Plastic’s to introduce its DiversaSeal sealant technology to the industry. DiversaSeal enables the customer to use one structure for multiple applications.
Also available by special order are film-faced structures with strong printability and an industry standard Surlyn sealant layer specified for added strength.
