New product solutions in food packaging (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) are being developed by Danish converter Færch Plast using SABIC® PP. One of Færch Plast’s key challenges is to develop packaging that is friendlier for the environment without compromising on technical requirements and trendy design. As well as the appearance of packaging, its “green” aspect is becoming increasingly important for consumers, more and more of whom are consciously choosing to buy environmentally friendly products and packaging. SABIC understands this trend and has designed the homopolymer grade SABIC® PP 527K to meet these requirements.
“Our customers are looking for lightweight packaging with an eye-catching design and an excellent impact. By using the SABIC® PP range for Thermoforming we can meet and even surpass these expectations, thus supporting and improving our customers’ brand awareness,” says Merete Rosendahl, Development Manager, Færch Plast.
This new generation of PP for thermoforming offers converters down gauging possibilities of up to 10-15% which provides them with significant material and energy savings. Without compromising on quality and safety, these grades are the product of choice when it comes to sustainable production and consumption
