Südpack Introduces New Generation Veraplex Film

04 June 2014

GERMANY – At this year’s interpack, Südpack Verpackungen GmbH & Co. KG presented Veraplex for the first time.

The completely new film generation offers maximum product protection with minimal film thickness.

Although the film is extremely thin, it provides outstanding puncture resistance with an extremely high oxygen/aroma barrier.

The film is suitable for products with high mechanical requirements and for corrosive bulk products. Film laminated with paper creates a very eco-sustainable packaging.

The amount of film is kept to a minimum without sacrificing product protection properties.

"Veraplex is the film of the future," said Südpack Managing Partner Johannes Remmele.

"The material achieves an outstanding thickness to function performance ratio that is unprecedented in today's market. It's a revolution in film."

The film has impressive properties and many possibilities for presentation. It is highly transparent and can be designed using flexographic and rotogravure printing processes.

Veraplex Craft: Optimal Combination of Film and Paper

Veraplex Craft laminates film with paper. Only 25 µm thick, the film improves eco-sustainability while maintaining the same product protection properties. Veraplex combined with paper also scores points when it comes to product presentation.

The renewable resource ensures stability yet has a natural look and feel.

Consumers instantly recognise the ecological advantages of the packaging – a persuasive factor at point of sale.

Options include a laser-cut window that offers a direct view of the product inside and reinforces consumer trust.

Veraplex Craft combines the strengths of both materials: The functionality of film and consumer acceptance of paper as a packaging material. Veraplex Craft can be processed as a tubular bag and as a lid film on standard packaging machines.
