Ecoplast Ltd. , is a reputed and prime supplier in India of Multilayer co-extruded plastic films for flexible packaging and other  speciality  applications.

Multilayer  films  are a combination of two or more thermoplastics (polyethylenes) co-extruded to form one homogenous film with distinct individual layers. Multilayer films provide a range of properties, which cannot be obtained from monolayer films. This film forms a very important and integral part (or seal layer) of a laminate, made with polyester film, biaxially oriented Polypropylene
film or aluminium foil; a process, which is carried out by
Ecoplast's customers.

In general the company's films are used with or without lamination in a wide range of product groups such as: beverages; edible oil; dairy products; snack foods; processed foods; cosmetics; toiletries; pharmaceuticals; bakery products; and food commodities like salt, wheat flour, rice, sugar etc. Industrial applications include: adhesive films for bonding materials; release films; films for manufacture of jelly-filled telephone cables.

The technology in making a multilayer film lies, in developing recipe or film structure by the selection and processing of various polymers depending primarily upon:
The compatibility of the film with the product packed;
The desired shelf-life;
The packaging system and it's level of sophistication;
The seal configuration of the pack;
The required mechanical properties of the film;
The budgeted cost of the pack.
