Technical Films

PlastoSac is a leading manufacturer and supplier of technical film and packaging solutions to the UK food industry. We use the latest technologies, polymers and print techniques to deliver solutions which protect, preserve and enhance our customers products. These are available as films, laminates, lidding films, finished bags and pouches, designed and specified to run across all types of packing lines and filling machines.

Our technical solutions are driven by the customers and designed to support their complex processing and shelf life needs. These can range from short shelf life, chilled and ambient products through to extended and long-life retort applications. Our films are designed to operate under cold, hot fill and retort conditions, according to the customer needs.

In addition, we supply a diverse range of easy opening and resealable options, including laser score, zip lock and multiple fitment options.

We can offer the complete range of finishes from simple to high performance, utilising our latest HD Flexo, Gravure and Digital print technologies.

Narrow Web Print – Digital and Flexo

PlastoSac also offers Digital and Flexo narrow web printing solutions. It allows our customers the advantage of being able to switch between the two technologies, depending on the specific requirements of their jobs.

Digital printing across our HP600 for short runs and fast turnaround is perfect for sampling, testing and launching new products.  More and more brand managers are requiring a closer connection with their customers to quickly and effectively deal with ever changing markets. Digital printing is ideal for personalising packaging and adjusting run sizes. Furthermore, there are no expensive initial set up costs.

Where longer runs are required, and / or with the potential need for an extended range of finishing options and large areas of colour, Flexo printing offers the ideal solution.

By offering complimentary technologies PlastoSac is well-placed to support your packaging needs throughout the entire product life cycle.
