Outstanding thermoforming behavior

At the Ingolstadt site, our APET film (amorphous PET) is produced on four lines, which can be manufactured with a very high proportion of recyclate (> 99%).

In addition to excellent deep-drawing behavior, it is also ideally suited for all common deep-drawing systems.

Suitable for all common thermoforming systems!

The enormously transparent APET film is also available in different colors depending on customer requirements. The thickness range is also very wide. Furthermore, it is also available as a foamed variant, which means a high weight saving.

In addition to the pure mono APET film, we laminate it inline against various sealing and barrier films, optionally with or without peel or reclosure.

Printing on the film is also possible.

It is used in the sausage, meat or cheese sector, as well as for the production of blisters and trays.

All of our APET films are ideally suited for the food sector, and the high proportion of recycled material makes them very sustainable.

Foamed APET

Less is more!

Lower blade wear, no sharp corners in the event of incorrect blade positions, brilliant sealing properties and perfect barrier values thanks to the use of our tried-and-trusted 7-layer barrier technology are just some of the advantages of these innovative films.

The pleasant surface structure and up to 25% lower use of raw materials are sure to convince you. And that‘s not even mentioning the significant cost savings for the Green Dot (Der Grüne Punkt)!
