Selig Group is pleased to announce its largest range of flexible packaging, liners and vents is on show at Fachpack 20022, offering manufacturers even more choice. From Selig’s Ecoflex highly recyclable flexible packaging and newly available in Europe PreVentorTM Press-Fit vents to the expanded range of foam liners, there is a packaging solution for every requirement.
Selig Ecoflex flexible packaging
On stand is Selig Flexibles’ highly recyclable solution, Ecoflex, that is proving popular with baby food, confectionery, snacking, and pharmaceutical manufacturers alike. A range of trials were run with customers in 2021 that have resulted in them making the switch to more sustainable packaging. Selig’s Ecoflex flexible solutions are made from a PP single-material packaging material for recycling (cold seal applications), that is made of recyclable polypropylene and that provides an excellent barrier against oxygen, water vapour and most mineral oils.
Ecoflex can be processed at high speed on most packaging equipment and thermal damage is avoided, due to the cold seal application. The packaging also offers very good puncture resistance, and thickness differences in overlap seams are well compensated. In addition, the printed packaging is detectable in most sorting plants in Europe and can be assigned to the PP recycling stream and recycled. Thus, valuable plastic is recovered from the packaging material.
Expanded range of liners
Following recent acquisitions, such as MGJ — a leading supplier of foam-based liners worldwide, Selig Group, now offers one of the most extensive ranges of primary seals, induction seals, glue applied, induction bond and vented sealing solutions. On stand at FACHPACK are the company’s oenosealÒ, tresyleneÒ and Uni-FoamÔ liners. Oenoseal offers wine producers the ability to seal screwcap bottles cost-effectively, whilst helping the wine to age to perfection. Tresylene, an expanded polyethylene foam coated on each side with a polymer film, can be tailored to suit the specific the barrier requirements of the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and agrochemical markets. Uni-Foam, a robust, non-absorbent expanded polyethylene lining material, is compressible and resistant to microbial growth. It offers a highly efficient and reliable barrier to aqueous, acidic, or oil-based liquids.
Selig has begun stocking the company’s highly successful push fit PreVentorTM Press-Fit vents in Europe. The range has been developed to allow containers to breathe and equalise pressure, without risk of leakage or contamination. Developed around Selig’s world-class package venting design, the vents not only resolve off-gassing problems but can be used to lightweight packaging.
Holger Alvensleben, Sales Director at Selig Flexibles, comments: “We are bringing our biggest range of packaging solutions to this year’s Fachpack. Producers can now resolve their sustainable packaging, sealing and container bloating and paneling issues more easily and quickly.”
