This is our new "Green" product line for BIODEGRADABLE or COMPOSTABLE flexible packaging. It's “OK Compost” and "OK Compost Home" certified with thick up to 110µm and are specifically conceived for the Food industries.
The true asset of these products is that the raw material used is derived from renewable sources and biobased and contains polylactic acid (PLA) and polybutylene succinate (PBS/PBSA). Over the last years the fields in wich it is possible to effectively use BIO films have increased sharply. Some example taken from our portfolio are:
Nowadays most films used in various sectors, like the F&B and the pharmaceutical industry, are hard to recycle. As a matter of fact, flexible packaging is obtained by coupling films made of different polymers, each with its specific functional characteristics. Often, at the end of their lifecycle, as the different polymers cannot be separated, the only possible solution is incineration or landfilling.
A feasible and cutting edge alternative are our range of monomaterial films, a sustainable solution that can replace multimaterial bonded films with films made of polymers of the same group (PE).
The issue of environmental protection in increasingly at the center of attention in Italy and in the world, for this reason we've developed monomaterial films that guarantee a lower environmental impact thanks to greater ease of recycling of the monomaterial structure.
Monomaterial packaging are a new class of products that is constantly evolving and can be used successfully in more and more applications. Currently, there are three main groups:
This film was conceived thanks to the synergy between our R&D and the multinational corporations that supply us with raw materials. It is made of a blend containing up to 60% virgin granules from post consumer (ISCC Certificate) or post industrial (PSV Certificate). This film is suitable for single-use packaging and for the tissue industry. Optical features, slipperiness and runnability have already been tested by the final user so as to improve its performances. It is not suitable for food use.
By "Printing and lamination" it is meant the process to join two or more materials so that they adhere to each other creating a single sheet. The goal is to combine materials in order to create supports with the desired specific properties.
The films in our LP range are the core of our production. Over the last 15 years, our films for printing and lamination were constantly updated and renewed in relation to the evolution of raw material performances, the evolution of converting technologies and the increasingly high performances required by final users.
The LP range cover all the applications currently demanded by the market:
The characteristics of each film in this range are calibrated in terms of mechanical resistance, hot-tack and seal strength, COF, flatness and thickness tolerance.
By "Spreading" (Coating) it is meant the process to cover a polyethylene substrate with adhesives to enhance and change its physical properties as well as its protection and adhesion ones.
By Thermal Lamination we mean the process by which two layers adhere simply as a result of temperature and pressure without the use of other substances or solvent-based adhesion promoters.
Our TL Series, with a high content of EVA, adheres on PET sheets and many other substrates. It is available also with a functional barrier layer of varying thickness, which is ideal for thermoforming:
The TL Series includes both transparent and coloured films, with a thickness range of up to 27 microns.
By "Labeling" it is meant the process to put a plastic film identification label on products and packages.
Our peelable films for tray lidding and easy-opening packaging are designed to adhere on several surfaces with calibrated peeling forces.
They ensure usability as well as safety and excellent sealing tightness.
The range includes three different adhesion mechanisms based on the desired application: adhesive peeling, cohesive peeling, internal delamination peeling (Burst Peel).
Our solutions are targeted and reliable and designed to adhere to PE, PP, PS, PET, PVC, Aluminium, glass and paper.

Our films for the medical field are conceived to meet all the requirements of secondary packaging for medical items. The medical field, by definition, is highly demanding and requires challenging technological solutions.
A complete range of barrier films with up to 9 layers suitable for different food, medical and technical packaging solutions with excellent oxygen, gas and aroma barrier properties. Upon request we provide films peelable to PP, PS and PET or with anti-fog and UV-block properties.
Our portfolio currently includes:
By "Metallization" it is meant the process to put a very thin layer of aluminum on a surface for aesthetic or functional purposes (barrier properties against oxygen, light, flavorings).
