All your vital statistics! Calculate your order quantities, decide how much you have on hand and work out your packaging costs.


The FFP calculator helps you calculate film usage based on the number of packs you want to produce, together with a number of other useful calculations around film usage.

Remember: The calculation assumes that your machines are set up to use the optimum amount of film, so book your FFP audit to make sure that this is the case.

You will need to know the yield of your film in sqm/kg – use the data sheets as a guide.


  • All dimensions must be in the units specified (metres/millimetres etc)
  • All weights must be in kg
  • Yield must be in sqm/kg
  • For lidding applications – Recommended film width = TRAY WIDTH + 50mm
  • For lidding applications – Film repeat = TRAY LENGTH + 40mm

We hope that you find the calculator useful. Why not contact us to discuss your film use further, we may be able to help you optimise or reduce your film usage.

We look forward to hearing from you.
