THE NETHERLANDS • Clondalkin Flexible Packaging will be attending Fachpack with packaging solutions and products to share with visitors at Hall 7, Booth 7-619, the company said. High on the list is the innovative Skintight film, which reduces food waste through extending product shelf life. The product provides a natural look for shelf appeal, as well as providing a safe and secure seal. It is formulated to seal on all widely available films and trays and is compatible with all types of converting machines, the company said.
Wentopro film is another product designed primarily for the food sector and provides a high barrier against moisture but also against harmful mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons. Mineral oil hydrocarbons derive from printing ink used in newsprint, which is commonly used to make recycled cardboard for food packaging. Some recent studies have linked these mineral oils to the inflammation of internal organs, including the liver, spleen and lymph nodes, the company said.
The company will also be exhibiting the award winning Flextreme printing technique that has won three industry awards. It provides print quality that is comparable to gravure with high ink and colour density at a competitive cost level with the added flexibility of shorter production runs and leads times associated with flexo.
