FILED IN:  Sustainability  > Strategy

Seeking to help customers meet sustainability initiatives, the portfolio consists of introductory technologies INsight, Synergy, and Endurance. INsight™ sealant film allows printing on the sealant layer, while eliminating a lamination pass. Synergy™ is a hybrid film with performance traits that add stiffness and moisture barrier properties to a package using less material. Film can also be used as a single substrate for pillow pouch applications. Designed to run 20% to 30% thinner than conventional products, Endurance™ is a thin-gauged, sealant film that offers the ability to maximize yield while maintaining a high-quality finished product.
