Technical Information

Production Process

We excel in always producing the most appropriate packaging solution for your needs. Our bags can be made of Polypropylene (PP) film, cellophane /  NatureFlex™,  paper or a mix of different materials.

– Flat bags, side-fold bags and Diamant © bags have sealed bottoms.
– Bags with a cardboard or PP bottom as well as SOS bags feature a stand-up, rectangular base made by folding.
– Bags with a cardboard or PP bottom as well as SOS bags feature a stand-up, rectangular base made by folding.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on our variety of packaging solutions produced by our 40 bag-making machines.

Our latest development in eco-friendly packaging is a 100% recyclable bag with a revolutionary hard bottom taking into account the principals of circular economy. In the near future this innovative bag will replace the common cardboard-bottom bag as you know it. 

Additional Options:

- In-line labeling: During our bag production process there is the possibility to stick up to two labels per bag in a pre-defined precise position. This allows you to skip this tedious and costly task to be done in-house.
- We offer a wide choice of bottom types in order to meet your technical or environmental expectations (printed cardboard bottom, recyclable PP bottom, compostable cellophane bottom, etc.).

Printing

In order to provide our customers with amazing results, we work with very modern, highly efficient printing machines.

3 fleoxography printers with up to 10 colours and 1 heliography printer with 10 colours are at your disposal and allow you to dream big  when you want to create a new packaging.

We have developed a special printing technique which is unique on the market in close cooperation with our partner repro company - Full HD printing in flexography with 250 dpi. 

This unprecedented technology has already won us several international awards.

Demetallizing

This process is used to obtain certain transparent zones on an initially completely metallized film.

Thanks to demetallizing, you can have a high-class metallic-effect for your bag (often used as a creative device) while having the possibility to have a window to see the product inside.

We constantly make ameliorations and optimizations to our demetallizing process and we are proud to have created a process that stands out in regards to ecological and economical aspects.

Hot Stamping

This is a widely used technique, which is very popular for design purposes (e.g. to make a brand logo stand out).

During this relief printing method a metallized foil is being transferred to another surface at high temperatures. Our machine is operating at an incredible 20 000 stampings/hour!

Perforations

Very useful and often necessary.

We offer various types of perforations adapted to your different requirements: Euro hole perforation for hanging up goods or Thürlings hole perforation to make a bag suitable for mechanical processing by a Clippac machine.

Our Materials

The materials we use for our products primarily come from two main sources: fossil ressources and renewable resources.

The majority of materials are available with coatings which will provide them with advanced properties regarding barrier function, sealability or machinability.

Plastic Films: Polyolefin issued from fossil resources (petrol) (Overview valid for France only.)

Material Recycling in 2020* 2022
(Objective to recycle 75% of packaging)
Bi-oriented Polypropylene (OPP/BOPP)    
Mono-oriented Polypropylene (CAST)    
Polyethylene (PE)        
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)        

Cellulose films, paper, PLA (organic material coming from renewable resources) (Overview valid for France only.)

Material Compostable* Recycling*
Cellulose Filmc (Cellophane)      
NatureFlex ™      
Paper        
Coated paper        
Parchment paper / greaseproof        
Paper with barrier function (heat-sealable)        
Polylactic Acid (PLA)      

*These indications of recycability and compostability are likely to evolve depending on the commissioning of more waste sorting and recycling facilities.

 These indications are only valid for packaging free  of disruptors.
