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.
Material evaluation and selection
Industrial moulding trials, product and material testing, international test standards, raw material quality, selection strategy and harmonisation, material recycling.
Product and process development
Operational excellence, onsite technical support, product development, improvement and optimisation, harmonisation of additives and masterbatches and simplification of recipes.
Product and failure investigations
Tailor made seminars and training
IPR strategy and assistance
REACH and EU food directives
Norner is determined to develop and deliver sustainable solutions to any packaging challenges by focusing on all steps in the value chain.
Our broad approach allows us to influence packaging development starting from polymer type, design and manufacturing process via the additives to the actual processing and packaging application. This is ensured by the wide range of facilities and competencies in Norner.
Our labs and facilities operate under ISO 9001 and a high quality internal control system.
