Saving%

~14%

Material Reengineering

  • New BOPP Lamination films recommended

  • Using Semi-Chemical fluting adhesives instead of standard water based for increased resistance to water and lower Paper GSM for Corrugation

  • Introduced low migration ,higher mileage  inks

  • Evaluated and tested Lower Micron Bopp films offering similar or better tensile & printable properties

  • Located vendors offering automatic Semi Chemical fluting for corrugation –tested and organized regulatory approvals for using these inks for Pharma/Food proceeses.
