The Thermoforming System
Thermoforming films are a cost-effective way to pack products in-line by horizontally forming the pack, filling and finally sealing.
The pack is formed with top and bottom ‘web’ films. The top film is usually flexible as it forms/vacuums around the shape of the product, and retains its characteristics of high puncture resistance and gloss.
Usually seen in the food industry, products are packed in trays and skin film applied to the top of the package for extra puncture resistance, this top web can be customised to your individual branding with effective colour or stamp printing.
If forming the entire package with thermoforming film (that is using top & bottom web), the bottom web can also be quite rigid and customisable with your branding. Being the section of packaging that ‘holds’ your product, you will need to ensure that this bottom web is of the highest quality to preserve its shape while it’s on the shelf.

Are consumers looking for responsible packaging?
To get any flexible plastic packaging recycled, the customer must return it to a bin at their local grocery store. Not only are many unaware of this requirement, but it also places a lot of the responsibility on the end user.
