Packaging: JaeKwang produces CPP flat films in a five-layer process

JaeKwang produces CPP flat films in a five-layer process

South Korean packaging maker JaeKwang, which previously operated exclusively as a converter since its establishment in 1999, decided to take a new direction by producing films recently. This was a big step for JaeKwang, which is now the first company in South Korea to produce CPP flat films in a five-layer process.

It was able to do this through the installation of its first five-layer, 1,300-kg/hour CPP film line from German extrusion machinery maker Reifenhäuser.

Reifenhäuser and JaeKwang have ensured that the CPP machine has been tailored to meet the optimum requirements of the end product. Thanks to Reifenhäusers core competencies in the hot part extrusion equipment, the Reifenhäuser team was able to fully align the line with the needs of its customer and the local raw materials.

Technologically convincing for JaeKwang was in particular the feedblock system from Reifenhäuser. JaeKwang opted for a Coextrusion Adapter Pro. This enables multilayer production in low tolerances and adjustment of the layer distribution during ongoing production. The Korean all-rounder has therefore now commissioned Reifenhäuser to install a second line.

In South Korea, packaging materials are designed creatively and elaborately in terms of haptics and appearance. In addition, there are growing consumer demands for functionality. Currently, for example, the so-called easy tear function is particularly in demand for pouches. With this function, any type of pouch can be opened quickly, safely, and cleanly thanks to an integrated tear strip.

This user-friendly solution can be realised by a line with a stretching unit (MDO), which JaeKwang will now install in the next step. This plant technology will also be the first of its kind in South Korea, claims the firm.
