Ultimate Flexipack And W&H Join Hands In Sustainable Packaging With Mdo TechnologyMay 28, 2022
Together with W&H as Ultimate Flexipack’s supplier of their previous 5 blown film lines, a new project for an inline MDO with VAREX II 5-layer blown film line was started.
Sustainability is currently one of the most important drivers in the flexible packaging market as expectations placed on packaging continue to rise. A packaging now should provide enhanced product protection, greater convenience, and improved aesthetics, along with sustainability. Innovative companies such as Ultimate Flexipack, which are known for their high-quality films, are responding to these challenges by developing alternatives to today’s conventional multi-material laminates through inline MDO technology, which has been identified as the best solution for replacing such structures with MDO-PE to create a mono-material laminate which would be easily recyclable. Together with W&H as Ultimate Flexipack’s supplier of their previous 5 blown film lines, a new project for an inline MDO with VAREX II 5-layer blown film line was started.
With this investment in new technology, Ultimate Flexipack can now produce laminates from 100% PE Material that offer similar functionalities as conventional lamination films. Moreover, like all other W&H machines which provide ease of use and flexibility, both MDO-PE and the PE sealing films can be produced on the same line. This gives an added advantage to use the blown film line for much wider applications.
