plastic sheet used for packing

Packaging comes in many shapes, sizes, textures and colours depending on its function. Some has been specifically designed to block out oxygen in the case of food packaging films and bags to preserve freshness, reduce the use of additives while maintaining the taste and nutritional value. In turn, this can reduce the amount of food we throw away or waste.

Other plastics need to be more rigid in construction, such as trays and boxes in order to offer protection and minimise movement during transit.

Some plastic packaging is designed to catch the eye; to encourage a purchase or heighten appeal.

Plastic provides the perfect combination – flexibility (film or rigid), ease of sterilization, strength, lightweight, impermeability, and stability. It offers conservation, preservation, and convenience. It can literally lighten the load for transport trucks by reducing bulk and weight and therefore reduce transportation energy and decrease emissions.

  • PET and PETG Plastic Sheet
