Savings Focus

Can I use coextruded films in laminations or to replace laminated film to lower packaging cost?

The quick answer is YES, and in two significant ways. The first way would be to substitute or replace coextruded barrier film in what was formerly a plain laminated structure without printing. The barrier need should be examined to match up the oxygen barrier requirement and whether the film needs to have nylon on the outside of the web for automatic FFS or in pouch making conversion.

If the OTR (Oxygen Transmission Rate) barrier can be attained and package optics is not a concern, then there can be a significant cost savings by switching to a coextruded film to replace a lamination.

The second way to save money is to use the barrier coextruded film as the sealant layer in a lamination. For instance, NYLON or EVOH & Nylon, or some other possible barrier combinations, such as Nylon and, or HDPE (high density polyethylene) for added moisture barrier; whatever the specific barrier requirement is needed in the finished lamination.

But it is worth examining coextruded flexible films as a cost savings alternative. With the correct use of coex films and careful evaluation with the packaging equipment and barrier testing, these coex films can be a great way to offset the rising cost and uncertainty of material pricing fluctuations in today’s competitive marketplace.

Dependable Industrial Packaging For All Applications

We're your source for tough, affordable industrial packaging that protects your products. General Films offers a wide range of custom films from economically priced material for non-FDA regulated applications, to single layer and coextruded films for special uses. We make linear, low-density film from 7" tubing to large pallet covers and sheeting and offer a wide range of custom colors as well as a broad assortment of bags on rolls or separated.

Coextruded Film Products

Some industrial packaging applications require the enhanced strength that only a coextruded film product provides. General Films uses multiple layers of different materials to greatly improve impact resistance and tear strength versus standard films or bags. And our Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) films and bags are the perfect solution for molding compounds, circuit boards, metal products and other items that must be protected from environmental forces.

Box And Barrel Liners

Give us your requirements and we'll help size and specify liners for corrugated or drums. Because General Films is a custom resource, you'll get precisely the size and strength you need for your application.

Top Sheets

Available as individually cut or perforated on rolls, top sheets protect pallets from dirt and moisture. We can help you package your product for maximum durability.

Shrink Bundling Films

Custom made to your specifications, our shrink bundling film provides an economical industrial packaging system. The high shrink force and contact clarity protect against in-transit damage, pilferage and product tampering.

Pallet Covers

General Films produces dependable polyethylene pallet covers with excellent puncture resistance so your products arrive safely at their destination. They're available in side seal, bottom seal, flat or gusseted bags so you get the best fit and most protection possible. Also available is a high-grade shrink version for tight product utilization and to reduce load shifting.

Machine Films

Made from prime resin, our machine films offer the ultimate in flexibility. You can use centerfold films on most L-sealers, and our single wound sheeting is standardized for shrink wrappers. Mattress manufacturers benefit from several grades of machine wrap films. General Films machine films are perfect for use on vertical form/fill/seal equipment.

Performance Products

Our packaging films can be formulated to meet rigorous requirements like automotive standard 302 or NFPA flame retardancy. Our antistatic films can meet military specifications or other static resistant requirements. For sunlight exposure, UVI film provides substantially longer use life. Light sensitive products require our photoblack film; impervious to sunlight. Many other performance attributes can be met with our ability to custom formulate various packaging films.
