PACCOR: Film for dairy industry
A new sustainable film concept for dairy form-fill-seal (FFS) applications.
The new film was developed at the Group’s FFS Centre of Excellence in Mont-de-Marsan in France. Its name Neocell is a new trademark from PACCOR.
Neocell is designed to offer unique advantages in terms of efficiency and sustainability.
Vincent Duguay, Development Leader, commented: “We are tremendously excited about Neocell’s potential. It is an innovative, ecological and resource-saving concept for various FFS applications. Its unique selling point is its low-density middle layer, which makes the polystyrene film lighter and more environmentally friendly and improves the carbon footprint”
In essence, Neocell’s density decrease leads to weight reduction, material savings and less CO2 emission. Neocell is also flexible, because the density and the structure of the film may be adjusted according to the client’s needs.
There are a number of film thicknesses available, ranging from 0.7 mm to 1.4 mm, and the film can be either white or bi-colour.
