Bespoke plastic packaging

Bespoke plastic packaging

Thermoformed plastics

Thermoforming has close similarities with vacuum forming except that greater use is made of air pressure, the process is invariably automated and faster cycle times are achieved than in the vacuum forming process. Thermoformed plastics are excellent for customers who require soft plastic packaging, in particular thermoformed plastics are usually used in the food, toiletry, pharmaceutical and electronic industry.

Our offering can include….

  • Various types of extruded thermoformed plastics in sheet or reel format
  • A variety of materials available including polyethylene terephthalate (PET), recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET), perforated polyethylene terephthalate (PPET), amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET), poly-ethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS)
  • Produced using form, fill & seal (FFS) vacuum machinery such as MultiVac & Ilpra.
  • Food-grade environment materials, compliant with BRC IOP
  • Lamination and sealing layers if required.
  • A choice of any colour or variation to suit requirements

Expanded / foamed plastics

Expanded, moulded or fabricated foams provide an ideal alternative packing solution for heavy, fragile or irregular shaped products. When used in conjunction with corrugated board, plastic containers, totes or pallet stillage’s these foams can provide a safe re-usable packaging system.

Our offering can include…

  • Experienced advisors in packaging design and testing (including UN dangerous goods)
  • CAD design and samples in polyethylene (polythene, PE), polystyrene (PS), polyurethane (PU) and polypropylene (PP)
  • Special variants within these materials to suit your product needs, such as flame retardant (FR)

Blister and clamshell packs

Blister and clamshell packs are an ideal solution for packaging small consumer goods and pharmaceuticals, and protect the product from external factors such as humidity and contamination for extended periods of time.

Our offering can include…

  • Standard stock range of blister and clamshell packs and CAD (Computer Aided Design) for bespoke solutions
  • Sample tooling, where we will produce a small number of products for test and evaluation
  • Food grade packs produced in BRC IOP environments, that can be heat, ultrasonic or manually (clamshell / clip) sealed

Printed films

Flexible or rigid films can be printed, from random repeat to registered printing, and are perfect for consumer goods and product optimisation.

Our offering can include…

  • A flexographic printing process in up to 8 colours
  • Origination and artwork proofing facilities
  • High quality direct-to-plate technology to ensure best in class printing
  • Produced within a food grade (BRC IOP) environment

Plastic containers

Plastic containers can be used individually or as a part of a total packaging solution when combined with our standard 'in the box' packaging products. They are an excellent way to store, protect and transport a wide variety of products.

Our offering can include…

  • Totes, pallet boxes and other rigid containers
  • Can be used with expanded / foamed plastics or fabricated corrugated sheet for enhanced protection

Corrugated sheet

Plastic (PP) corrugated sheet, is lightweight, waterproof & re-usable. It is a perfect solution for commercial signs and sign-writing as well as forming durable packs, pallet containers or fittings.

Our offering can include…

  • A variety of thicknesses and colours
  • Corona treated sheets for sign-writing
  • Correx and Twinplast sheeting
