- Strip lamination – paper and foil based.
Multiple layers for multiple purposes
Flexible packaging is supplied either as a single layer (monolayer) film or as a multi-layer laminate, with layers performing specific functions within the structure of the packaging. The laminate is constructed with high-performance adhesives to make sure they perform superbly on your packing lines and give protection to the product being packed.
Our lamination expertise and capability sets us apart from our competitors. With three laminators including the recent addition of a state-of-the-art Nordmeccanica Super Combi 4000, we have not only bolstered capacity, but this investment allows us to apply specialist Gravure coatings that can provide a variety of print effects (matt, tactile, gloss) offering our customers options to perfectly reflect their brand values and aspirations as well as providing eye-catching and vibrant shelf appeal. It has also significantly increased our cold seal capacity, enabling us to respond to increased customer demand across more market sectors.
FFP has 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.
FFP has two dedicated, insulated ‘hot rooms’ maintained at 40°C, allowing us to produce laminates using specialist, high-performance adhesive systems. Our extensive hot room capacity enables us to respond more quickly and with more flexibility to our customers’ requirements.
