Our high-performance films and foils are produced to be as thin as possible and only as thick as necessary. Polyethylene is an intelligent material that can be utilized very flexibly. Thanks to modern blown film extrusion, we use fewer natural resources than our competitors. All reusable production materials are returned to the process via our on-site recycling system.
Household & Industrial Films and Foils
Step 1: Film and Foil extrusion
What do children’s bubble solution have to do with our film production?
It is easy to imagine how our films are created thanks to a huge extrusion bubble. First, the polyethylene granulate is melted through heating. Then, this melted plastic is passed through a ring nozzle and blown by the extruder into a closed film tube. After exiting the nozzle, the film cools in the air, flattened and rolled. Thanks to the 16 m high extrusion tower, variations in thickness can be finely tuned. Some films are extruded with a thickness of only 0.008 mm. By the way, a human hair is 8x thicker.
Step 2: Production of the film tubes
The extruded film tubes are rolled onto a large parent reels – with a length of up to 200 km at a time. From these film bands, high-speed lines weld garbage and freezer bags in a cleanly controlled process. We place special value on recycling and reusing any production waste which occurs. And lest we forget the production of our industrial and packaging films and foils: with our own flexographic printing press, we offer a wide range of wicket and drawstring bags and implement customized private label packaging for our customers. At the same time, we use the packaging films and foils for our own cotton wool, feminine hygiene and incontinence products.
