  • Jindal Films
    Metal barrier films (ES technology)

    With their ES technology, Jindal supplies metal films which form a major barrier to oxygen, aromas and humidity while offering sealant properties needed for packaging. With this film, they can replace three layers of the previous structure to achieve the following composition:

    1. Printed paper or plastic layer for decoration.

    2. Adhesive layer.

    3. 28UBW-ES or 28MH388-ES metal film.

    Lo-G packaging for Yomova payment terminals

    The Lo-G packaging system is fully personalised in line with the dimensions of the products packaged (Yomova payment terminal). This design reduces the weight and volume of the packaging and eliminates all other packaging elements. Just two elements are retained: the Lo-G wrap in bio-based HDPE and the cardboard box.

  • Plastipak Belgium
    PET pasturised recipient

    Recipients that can be filled and pasteurised at high temperature (95°) and thus replace glass recipients. This will make it possible to reduce the weight and save on CO2  emissions, as well as to reduce breakage waste. Opportunities to package pasta sauces, jam, etc. 

  • Total Refining & Chemicals
    Total Lumicene Supertough polymer bag

    The development of a multilayer film that contains Total Lumincene Supertough has made it possible to reduce the standard thickness of the bags from 120 µm to 100 µm. A 15% reduction in weight.

  • Solidus Solutions Bvba
    Tomato box enriched with tomato plant fibres

    The 3kg tomato tray is used on the shelves as primary packaging and also serves as transport packaging. This box contains wood fibres (from paper-wood recycling) and tomato plant fibres. The box can still be recycled with paper and cardboard.

  • Jam&Ry
    Ajustable - Protective packaging

    The design of the ajustable protective packaging considerably reduces the number of products for the user. As its name indicates, the packaging can be adjusted to the product to be packaged. Several models are currently available, in different types of cardboard. The principle is simple: the adjustment is made using two cardboard pieces connected using a zip system. This product was developed for the AGC group but is now attracting a great deal of interest in industry in general.

  • L'Oréal
    Kérastase Fusio Dose

    The PP 15 drop single-dose box has been replaced by a PET 120ml multi-dose version. The single-dose box with 15 small glass bottles has been replaced by a single-dose box of 10 small PET bottles with 25% recycled content. The size of the box has been optimised and certain elements have been left out (aqua vector and padding).

    Bi-oriented ISBM bottle in PE HD

    The PE HD bottles are made by ISBM (injection stretch blow moulding) using bi-orientation technology, improving the mechanical properties and reducing the packaging weight. The 1l bottles now weigh 24g, which is 45% lighter than the PE bottles made by EBM (extrusion blow moulding). In addition, the ISBM technology opens up the possibility of limiting transport to preforms only and blowing the bottles directly at the client's.
