Packaging created with Aspira EN177 showcases the product inside, rather than simply containing it, according to the company. Aspira offers gloss and glasslike clarity to increase package shelf appeal, and enhances the product appearance and user experience by permitting ergonomic, curvy and intricately designed containers. The material allows designers to create containers with functional handles and volumes of 60 oz. and larger. Can be processed on all extrusion blow-molding platforms — shuttle, wheel and reciprocating screw — at industry-standard speeds.
