Product category: Cups made of plastic

ibt (inert barrier technology) = barrier through coating

The demands for food packaging have changed significantly in the past few years. Even though consumers want food of the highest quality with no added preservatives, the need for foods with a longer shelf life continues to grow.

With its “inert barrier technology” (ibt), Greiner Packaging has succeeded in bringing food shelf life for plastic cups to a whole new level. The objective of the coating is to minimize the migration between the filling and the packaging, while at the same time protecting the filling from external effects.

This particular technology involves applying a barrier layer to plastic cups. And this is where the excellent properties of silicon dioxide come into play: The cups are first guided into a vacuum chamber. A silicon-containing gas and oxygen are then piped into the chamber while an electrode is used to generate plasma. This produces a coating on the cups involving the sealed inner layer and the plastic.

The SiOx layer produced is “chemically inert” and therefore non-reactive. The oxygen and moisture permeability is greatly reduced. The aroma and flavor of the filling are completely preserved. The coating is resistant to temperature and humidity, is flexible, and is suitable for aseptic filling. There is also no retort shock, i.e., a decrease in the barrier effect. In the end, the longer shelf life can reduce unnecessary food wastage.

Greiner Packaging is the global leader in the use of ibt in cup packaging. In 2015, the company was awarded the Swiss Packaging Award and the World Star Award followed by the President's Award in 2016 for this technoloy.

In sum, the advantages are once again:
  • Enhanced shelf life of the filling without adding any preservatives
  • Reduction of oxygen and moisture permeability
  • Preservation of aroma and flavor of the filling
  • Coating is resistant to temperature and humidity
  • No retort shock (i.e. a decrease in the barrier effect)
  • Reduction of food wastage
  • No influence on disposal, recycling or the weight of the packaging

mbt (multi barrier technology) = barrier through several layers

Modern consumer demands for longer product shelf lives without preservatives while providing good product protection are increasing. Greiner Packaging has followed the trend and is investing heavily in developing barrier technologies for plastic food packaging. This technique involves layers of various materials that protect the filling. By placing a great deal of value on having a wide range of offerings of plastic food packaging for different target groups, Greiner Packaging has succeeded in driving a variety of different barrier technologies, for example the Multi Barrier Technology, forward.

Advantages of the Multi Barrier Technology (mbt):
  • A greater oxygen barrier can be achieved by embedding a special barrier layer such as EVOH or PA into a standard plastic, such as PP or PET - migration between the filled product and the packaging can be minimized
  • A higher transparency can be achieved due to the mbt 1-step-production process
  • Temperature resistance in terms of hot-filling
This plastic food packaging technology is used for extrusion, sheet extrusion with subsequent thermoforming for cups and bowls as well as for injection strech blow molding for bottles and containers. The filling requirements can be addressed individually, depending on the plastic systems chosen.

K3® cardboard-plastic-combination

A cardboard wrap, possibly made of recycled paper, is placed on a plastic cup that is produced with the thermoforming technology.

This decoration technology provides various advantages:
  • Maximized marketing opportunities
  • Enhanced shelf impact
  • Elegant and warm feel
  • Unique shapes & designs
  • Window cut-outs: give the customer a peek of what is inside
  • Outer surface with aluminum lamination & hot stamping possible - metallic look: add a premium feel and look to your products
  • Microwaveable, freezable
  • Enhanced insulating properties
  • Easy separation of cardboard & plastic
  • Promo campaigns: maximize marketing opportunities for your packaging
Caring for the environment:
  • Lower tare weight = lower transportation cost 
  • Good energy efficiency & excellent CO2 balance
  • Reduced plastic content of up to 50% compared to conventional packaging
By now, Greiner Packaging offers this decoration technology in 6 different variants  - from  K3®-D (where the cardboard wrap is molded in the third dimension) to K3®-H (where the bottom of the plastic cup is curved inward and reinforced with cardboard).

Customers favor this special technology to stand out at the Point of Sale and to underlign their efforts towards sustainability:
A few years ago, the butter market was expanded by an additional category: thanks to a small portion of vegetable fat added to the butter, it was possible to offer  readily spreadable  and low-fat  spreads. This also demanded a new packaging solution which Greiner Packaging International was able to fulfill perfectly. We met the demands of our customers with our K3® butter tub - easy to handle, recloseable and environmentally friendly, thanks to the combination of cardboard and plastic. Greiner Packaging International, the market leader in this combination of renewable raw material and plastic, was thus able to create new markets in this segment with the market leader, Kerrygold. Kerrygold has now further developed the convenience concepts and is offering the popular Kerrygold Original Irish Butter  also in the practical cub – once again made with the K3® technology from Greiner Packaging International.

IML (in-mold-labelling)

It’s not just a plastic cup, it is shaping and decoration in a single step.

In-mold labeling, or IML for short, is a popular decoration technology for plastic packaging. Having utilized the process for more than 27 years, Greiner Packaging has seen first hand the numerous benefits of this state-of-the-art technology.

In-mold labeling allows the package shaping and decoration processes to be completed in a single-step. The label is placed in the injection molding tool in which the product is shaped, therefore bonding it permanently to the finished product. The texture of the label surfaces may be matte, rough, shiny or soft to the touch—offering diverse possibilities while always achieving high-resolution photo quality results.

Each packaging element—ranging from cups to lids or other components—may be decorated with the IML process and each application may be varied according to your needs. Utilizing this technology ensures that high-quality and decorative products are produced in a single-step hygienic production process, resulting in shorter production time and lower production costs.
