Lindplast: Printable mono-layer film

Danish extruded film producer Lindplast has introduced an alternative to laminated film for decorated food packaging. General sales manager Hans ---tian Madsen said its mono-layer LDPE film is very glossy due to its special formulation with additives. He added that high-quality printing is possible due to the application of a lacquer to the film. “Laminates are usually over-sold for this type of application and are really used just for the glossiness rather than the image quality. I wouldn’t our solution will replace laminates, but it is an alternative that is cheaper and easier to recycle.” Although Lindplast has recently introduced co-extruded film, it has traditionally been a producer of mono-layer film. “We have taken mono technology and developed it to perfection,” Madsen added. Lindplast unveiled the technology at this week’s Anuga Foodtec fair in Cologne, Germany.
