We are experts in making consumers’ lives easier with easy-to-use packaging solutions that are more than just a cover for the packaged product. Today’s consumers are more demanding when it comes to packaging and we know how to meet their expectations. When packing groceries, confectionery or even electronics and spare parts, the ease of opening, reclosability and reusability are often essential.

 

High-quality packaging promotes high-quality products. When creating your product brand, packaging plays a key part and the convenience of use is as important as the looks of your packaging. Usability can be enhanced with AmerLaser laser-perforated easy-open solutions or by creating a package that is ready to be microwaved. AmerLaser also provides a wide range of solutions for air release and micro-perforation for controlled breathability.

Market trends

 

  • Easy-open features, reclosability, microwaveable packaging and other functionalities increase consumer convenience and enhance the customer experience. Everyone enjoys a packaging that is easy to use or even has some additional features to make your everyday life a little easier.
  • For some people, packaging that is easy to open and use is a necessity. According to the UN, globally the number of older persons — those aged 60 years or over — is expected to more than double by 2050. The population aged 60 or above is growing at a rate of about 3 per cent per year. Currently, Europe has the greatest percentage of the population aged 60 or over (25 per cent).

 

 

  • It is not only the ageing population that are choosing products with convenient packaging. People are looking for little things that make their lives and the day-to-day routines a little easier. Convenience is a subjective matter depending on the user. The most important thing in any product and packaging development is knowing your customers and meeting their needs.
  • The Finnish Packaging Association ran a packaging survey in 2018 which stated that 35% of the people though that convenient packaging captured more of their attention at the store shelves.

Micro perforation for controlled permeability

 

The right permeability (breathability) is essential when packing fresh food products. Get acquainted with our AmerFresh Active Packaging System – a game changing technology that extends the shelf life of fresh produce products, thus decreasing food waste.

 

Microperforation can also be used for packaging applications suitable for the microwave in order to release the steam from the bag, for example.

Reclosable Amergrip and Zipper Bags

 

Our reclosable Amergrip bags have become a classic. Their versatility and durability, and the fact that they can be printed or written on, has seen them being used everywhere: from the home to industry and a multitude of other applications.

 

The secret of the success of the Amergrip lies in its grip – which is perfect for repeated opening and closing and is completely leak proof – and in its highly durable polyethylene composition. Standard Amergrip bags come in a wide range of sizes and are uniquely made of sustainable Green PE. The green polyethylene is derived from renewable resources as the plastic is made of sugar cane.

 

If you require an even stronger reclosable closure and a greater range of printing options, we recommend our zipper packaging. As the closure is attached to the film after printing, we can print zipper products in up to ten colours.

 

Reclosability

Tape Bags

 

Our tape bags, sealed with adhesive or other tape, are ideal for postal use or packaging textile products, for example – and they offer a cost-effective and efficient way to accelerate manual packing processes. We can also include a hanging hook and a side pocket for documents. High-quality printing is available in up to eight colours.

 

Sustainable Flexible Packaging

 

Sustainability is and will remain a key requirement for flexible packaging. At Amerplast, we are relentlessly promoting the use of green packaging solutions simply because we think it is our responsibility as a packaging supplier to constantly search for and bring forward the most environmentally friendly alternatives in materials and technologies for producing high quality packaging solutions.

 

The AmerGreen sustainability program is our quest for a better world. As part of the program, we offer sustainable raw materials and have developed solutions for the laminated structures that are fully recyclable in the existing recycling streams. Read more >>
