Layer Reduction: Chocolate Bar

Save material thanks to layer reduction

It’s a small contribution on our part, but a major one for our future. When sealing lidding films for thermoformed trays, our heat seal coatings replace the polyethylene layer. As a result, you reduce material consumption by up to 50% while saving weight. And our cold seal coatings are especially designed to enable mono-web packaging for chocolate or muesli bars. We can enable your production to be more sustainable.
