II. The Manufacturing Process

A. Raw Materials:

The foundation of packaging film production lies in the careful selection and sourcing of raw materials. These materials vary depending on the type of film being manufactured.

1. Origin and Types:

  • Plastic Films: Derived from various polymers such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). These polymers are sourced from petroleum-based or renewable sources like sugarcane or corn.
  • Paper Films: Crafted from wood pulp obtained from sustainably managed forests or recycled paper materials.
  • Bio-based Films: Made from renewable resources such as corn starch, sugarcane, or cellulose derived from plants.

2. Sourcing Practices and Quality Control:

  • Sustainable Sourcing: We prioritize environmentally responsible sourcing practices, ensuring the sustainability of raw materials.
  • Stringent Quality Control: Our materials undergo rigorous testing to meet stringent quality standards, guaranteeing consistency and performance in the final product.

B. Film Formation:

1. Extrusion:

Extrusion is the primary method for forming packaging films, involving the melting and shaping of the raw material into a thin, continuous film.

  • Basic Concept: The raw material is melted and forced through a die, where it is shaped into a film.
  • Extrusion Techniques: We employ various techniques such as blown film and cast film extrusion to achieve different film properties and structures.

2. Other Formation Methods:

  • Calendering: Utilized for manufacturing certain types of plastic films by passing the material through a series of heated rollers to achieve the desired thickness and surface finish.
  • Casting: Involves pouring the molten material onto a chilled drum or belt to form a thin film with uniform thickness and excellent clarity, commonly used for specialty films.

C. Film Properties and Enhancements:

The properties of packaging films are influenced by additives and processing techniques employed during manufacturing.

  • Additives: Various additives such as antioxidants, UV stabilizers, and slip agents are incorporated to enhance properties like strength, clarity, and barrier performance.
  • Specific Treatments: We offer specialized treatments such as anti-static coating and metallization to impart unique functionalities to the films, catering to specific application requirements.
