The main material in all our packages is paperboard. We use just enough to make the package stable, without adding unnecessary weight. Paperboard is a renewable material, made from wood.
Paperboard is the main material in our cartons. It provides stability, strength and smoothness to the printing surface.
Polyethylene protects against outside moisture and enables the paperboard to stick to the aluminium foil.
Aluminium foil protects against oxygen and light to maintain the nutritional value and flavours of the food in the package in ambient temperatures.
The key to achieving the best possible result quickly and with the least material resources is to be found in the right combination of materials, design, processing and pretreatment. It requires in-depth, highly detailed knowledge.Read article "How X-ray helps build better milk cartons" on foodprocessing.com
