Testing and Trials at Injection Moulding Machine

Plastics materials for rigid packaging

We focus on innovation and technical solutions in processing and products of plastic materials for rigid packaging. 

Support to moulding industry and a technology partner in material, process, product development.

  • Rigid plastic packaging for food, consumer and industrial products is a large and important business. A wide range of moulded products and packaging applications require specific physical properties for different demands.
  • The final performance is influenced by the choice of material type and grade, material recipes and additives, mould design and processing.
  • It becomes increasingly important to understand these relationships vs. requirements for the packers, end users and legislation.
  • We have the competence, equipment and capability required to support the moulding industry and be a technology partner in material, process and product development, troubleshooting and support.
