Film on a Reel
Constantia FFP can provide film on a reel to your specifications
We supply film on a reel that will run on your own machines to produce the packaging format that you require. It is an extremely versatile option both in terms of the features and finishes that we can apply to the film to meet your product and branding requirements and the packaging format you can produce.
Film can be supplied as a single layer (monolayer) or as a multi-layer laminate, with layers performing specific functions within the structure of the packaging. We will supply the optimal film for your product, machine and process.
Our film on a reel will run on Horizontal Form Fill Seal Machines (HFFS) and Vertical Form Fill Seal Machine (VFFS) to produce the final packaging format you require such as, pillow packs, sachets, pouches, stabilo and quadroseal packs with sealing methods such as ‘fin seal’ or ‘lap seal’. All formats can be perforated to meet any MAP requirements. To meet the growing market demand for resealable packaging, we can also supply film with reseal labels already applied. The film will run efficiently on your machines without the need for modifications.

Sustainability in packaging is increasingly becoming a key requirement for brands and Constantia FFP have responded by developing recyclable solutions that can be collected now through existing waste collection streams.
Mono Material Recyclable Laminates
We have developed mono material laminates that can be collected by returning to store with carrier bags as classified by OPRL and can offer outstanding functionality including high barrier options. These materials offer a sustainable alternative to complex multi material laminates that cannot currently be recycled.
Recyclable Lidding Film
Constantia FFP have developed a recyclable lidding film that represents a major development in sustainable packaging. The resealable mono material lidding film, available in either PET or PP, has been designed to be used with a tray of the same material to produce the first mono material resealable pack in the UK to be classified as ‘Recycle’ by OPRL and collected in its entirety through the existing waste collection system.
Previously lidding film was unable to be collected and would have to be removed from the tray by the consumer and sent to landfill or for incineration. Esterseal however provides a solution that ensures zero lidding film waste needs to be sent to landfill and instead enables it to be collected at kerbside for recycling.
Ovenable packaging can provide significant lightweighting opportunities which in turn can see a substantial reduction in volume of packaging and in turn carbon emissions. Many ready-meals currently on the market are presented in a tray, with a film lid and cardboard sleeve. By replacing all of this packaging with one ovenable pouch, it is estimated that a weight saving of 83% can be achieved.
Constantia FFP is a laminate packaging specialist with decades of experience in developing the right composite structures for our customers’ exacting packaging requirements. We tailor laminates to suit the barrier requirements of the product, the packaging machinery and the decorative demands of the pack.
We have a strong relationship with a range of leading material suppliers so we can advise on the best possible structure to meet your needs technically and commercially; we build laminates from PET, OPP, PE, CPP, paper, aluminium foil and many other materials.
