Tekni-Plex Announces New Films at Pack Expo 2012

US-based Tekni-Plex, a company that develops and manufactures innovative packaging materials and precision-crafted tubing solutions, has introduced a new sustainable blister film solution at PACK EXPO in Chicago.

The films provide equivalent performance, enhanced processability and increased clarity when compared to PVC multi-structured laminated barrier (duplex and triplex series) and mono-blister films, according to the company.

Tekni-Plex sales and marketing manager Angela Roggenhofer said the packaging materials should be sustainable not only in terms of the environment, but also in their execution and economics to be part of a long-term solution.

"The PX and PXA Series pass the test of being an attractive option to which our customers can commit because they are practical and promote environmental sustainability," Roggenhofer said.

Tekni-Plex's PX and PXA Series of materials claim to offer practicable alternatives to films containing PVC films in all standard thicknesses and combinations.

PX is a non-barrier co-polyester, which serves as an alternative to mono-layer PVC for packaging applications that do not require any particular barrier properties.

PXA is a laminate of co-polyester and PCTFE films (Aclar/VapoShield) for blister packaging applications that require protection against moisture ingress/egress.
