Different Plastics for Packaging:
Flexpak offers several different types of plastic packaging solutions for pallets and bulk good shipments. The type of plastic has a great influence over the quality and strength in packaging design. While some plastics are better for stretching, some plastics are designed to withstand tears, and some allow for greater breath-ability.
Choosing the right plastic when covering goods should take into account three main areas: what is the product being covered, how is the product being shipped, and what kind of advertisement/print is needed? Different types of plastics provide solutions that meet the needs of this criteria.
Advancing Design with Plastic:
Flexpak continues to innovate packaging design based on plastic strength and hybrid pallet cover designs. Heat-sealing application is continually be modified and improved to design packages that cannot be produced in any other facility in the world. The goal is to create cost effective solutions to packaging bulk goods by adding strength, ease of application, and allowing for greater graphic application to plastics.
It is a secret. There have been several cover designs and poly modifications which have allowed greater breathability in packaging. Flexpak continually works to provide airflow into packages while keeping moisture from destroying goods in shipment.
