Ampac Flexibles introduces high-speed laminate films.


Flexi-Free[R] High-Speed Laminate Films, for use in high-speed form, fill and seal machines where increased speed is critical to throughput efficiencies, have been introduced by Ampac Flexibles.

The new Flexi-Free HS Laminates heat seal at temperatures 40[degrees] lower than standard laminate materials, allowing machine operators to shorten dwell times and increase speed. Pouch-making speeds can typically be increased 20% or more on high-speed, horizontal form, fill and seal machines, creating greater operational efficiency.

Additionally, Flexi-Free HS provides a low-temperature solution for packagers that may be handling and packaging products that are heat sensitive and should not have prolonged exposure to higher temperatures.

Ampac's High-Speed Laminate technology can be applied to many types of laminations such as metalized PET, foil and clear film laminations, making the film highly versatile for various end-market applications.

Flex-Free HS laminations are produced using Ampac's solvent-less lamination (SLL) technology which, according to a recent study, greatly exceeds solvent-based lamination (SBL) in energy efficiency.

"This innovation helps our customers reduce total cost by substantially decreasing necessary dwell time to obtain required seal strengths," said Bob Flaherty, innovation engineer for Ampac.
