Whether you are packing food, goods or liquids, Amerplast’s high-performance films are the perfect choice for your products. Our films and laminates are designed to meet the highest quality and product safety requirements. Thanks to our own research and development, we are able to find the perfect solution for each product without forgetting environmentally friendly solutions.

 

Our laminated films offer strong and stylish solutions for a wide range of products that require protection and special properties. An attractive appearance for the packages is ensured with high-quality printing and advanced printing solutions.

Market trends

 

  • The global flexible packaging market is growing. There are a number of reasons behind the growth, such as the conversion from rigid to flexible packaging. Flexible plastic films and laminates provide a light weight and versatile option with a decreased need for raw materials per packaging, thus lowering the environmental impacts and financial costs.
  • According to the European Union plastics strategy, all plastic packaging should be recyclable or reusable by 2030. Even before then, the increasingly demanding recycling targets at a European level (from the current 22.5% to 50% by 2025) and more efficient Extended Producer Responsibility schemes across Europe create requirements and pressure to increase the recyclability of packaging.

 

 

  • Sustainability is one of today’s key trends and future requirements. Recyclability and the use of recycled or biobased materials are the features now sought after in sustainable flexible packaging solutions.
  • Sustainability in packaging is most often communicated with rough paper-like surfaces, earth tones or green designs and different eco-symbols. Consumers are used to associating these visuals with sustainability and many brands are using this to stand out from the competition. As the number of sustainable options is increasing, the brands need to think about other ways to stand out and still communicate the sustainable values.

Films

 

Our FFS (Form-Fill-Seal)/ Flow Pack films are ideal for the packaging of both food and non-food products. We make use of the latest in extrusion technology and work with raw material and machine suppliers, as well as research institutes, to ensure that our solutions offer excellent performance and strength, usability in a wide range of machines, and top-quality printing. This enables us to help you speed up your production processes, minimize waste, and produce better products.

 

In addition to standard films like polyethylene and polypropylene, we offer a wide range of specialty films with unique feel, look and special features.

Laminates

 

Amerplast is an expert in lamination. We produce multilayer laminated films for a range of product applications using a solvent-free process and high-quality adhesives. Our product development know-how covers the entire lamination process. Our lamination expertise gives packaging very attractive visuals, high-quality surfaces, and excellent protection against wear and tear and chemical damage. We can process a wide range of materials such as polypropylene, polyethylene, EVOH, PET or paper.

Laminated films offer our customers not only the required protection for products, but also attractive visuals with different textures and visual effects. For example, our matt and paper laminates provide you with a way of creating an earthly feeling for your packaging or to create a totally different image with metallic effects. Whatever the desired image for your product and brand, we provide you with the solutions. We are also able to increase the convenience of your laminated packaging with AmerLaser perforation for easy-open solutions without damaging the barrier properties of your packaging. By choosing convenient and easy-to-use Amerplast packaging for your products, you will increase customer satisfaction, which will have a positive impact on your business.

 

Amerplast’s focus in the development of laminates is exclusively on recyclable solutions. The future of plastic packaging is in recyclability, enabling the transition to the circular economy of plastics. Sustainability is at the core of Amerplast’s operations and strategy, and our ambition is to be at the forefront of the development of the most sustainable flexible packaging solutions. Recyclability is the key when we strive to make the transition towards the circular economy and an efficient recycling of plastic packaging.
