Latest innovations by Coveris
Thermoforming In-Mold Labeling (TIML) is a revolutionary innovation by Coveris, which won a Packaging Oscar in Paris, France in November 2013 for its ability to meet the industry’s increasing demand for more sophisticated packaging decoration in combination with boosting output and efficiency. Furthermore, TIML is the first-ever decorated, high barrier and retortable plastic packaging solution.
Another example for one of the latest breakthrough innovations is the Injection Compression technology, as it breaks the down-gauging Injection In-Mold-Labeling barriers through a reduction of the injection pressure, achieving a decrease in the wall thickness, The result are light-weighted products with material savings up to 20%.
NEOCELL® is another result of extensive research in light-weighted product packaging. It is a thermoformable and breakable co-extruded 3-layer polystyrene (PS) film with a gaz-injected low-density middle layer. NEOCELL® is a truly innovative, ecological and resource-saving concept for various Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) applications, which makes the PS film lighter and more environmentally friendly and improves the carbon footprint
Interpack as leading international trade fair is a great opportunity to meet face to face with the local expert representatives of Coveris in order to experience the Group’s extensive capabilities in rigid and flexible plastic and paper packaging development and production, by focusing on high-performance, innovative and customized product packaging for a wide range of product applications in various end markets.
