Efficient Cooling for Innovative Packaging Solutions
Blown film extrusion with water-cooling can achieve very high cooling rates. Films manufactured using this technology exhibit a range of special properties: very good surface gloss, high transparency, very good weldability as well as excellent puncture resistance. Moreover, they can be processed very well by thermoforming. That makes them especially interesting for flexible packaging, for example for medical applications like infusion bags or for the food packaging sector.
In a trade press article, expert Dr. Lennart Ederleh discusses the opportunities that water-cooled blown film extrusion offers for flexible packaging.
