Nextfilm

The Nextfilm brand represents a new generation of packaging films, that manifests the commitment of the company in terms of circular economy and environment. It’s a result of 50 years of experience in film extrusion to launch a new range of products that comply with the dictates of the circular economy.

The first films available are MATER-BI biodegradables and COMPOSTABLE film in compliance with the international standard UNI EN 13432, for lamination or single-use in the packaging of food and products suitable for compostable packaging. Thanks to the ISCC PLUS certification, Ticinoplast is also developing films with BIOBASED renewable raw materials and films deriving from post-recycled raw materials consumption (PCR) from chemical recycling, which are certified for food contact. FOAMED films are also included in the Nextfilm line, which guarantee a reduction in terms of weight, reducing plastic materials to up to 20%

COMPOSTABLE FILMS

The very first film available in the Nextfilm range are COMPOSTABLES, developed together with international partners, and are also OK COMPOST certified. They are designed to be laminated together, rigid printing supports are available, suitable for gravure technology and low sealing films. Compostable films are also available for coupling with paper to ensure easy saleability, and for certain applications, such as baked goods and IV range vegetables.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO COMPLETE THIS COMPOSTABLE FILM WITH BARRIER CHARACTERISTICS THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF AD HOC PRIMER AND COATING.

In total, there are 5 films that hold the OK Compost certification, 2 printing media and 3 sealing films. Once laminated together, they ensure mechanical and sealing characteristics that are suitable for use on any packing machinery. The printing media can be processed both on rotogravure and flexo lines. The sealing films can be utilised both as coupled or single films, according to their application, and can be printed on.

Saldante

La saldatura deve garantire l’ermeticità e la tenuta in presenza di contaminanti. La progettazione del film deve tenere conto della temperatura di saldatura e delle proprietà di hot tack che misura la forza di saldatura a caldo tra i film. Vengono progettati comunque tenendo presente il prodotto da imballare, la macchina di confezionamento, le fasi di trasporto e movimentazione dell’imballaggio.

B100

A Rigid film, bio-polyester base, characterised by good clearance, printable also in rotogravure and suitable to be used as an external layer of a compostable laminate. This film can be lacquered and metallized to achieve excellent O2 and VWTR barrier results.

B101

A rigid film, bio-polyester base very similar to B100 but with superior mechanical characteristics.
The film is printable in Flexo and in rotogravure, and can also be used for lacquering and metallization.

B102

A soft and extremely low sealing film with excellent mechanical characteristics, suitable to be coupled in conjunction with the B100 as an internal layer of a compostable laminate.

B103

A soft, low-sealing film to be used for monofilm and lamination applications as a sealing layer to other compostable substrates such as cellulosic films or PLA base.

B104

A compostable film designed for IV-range printed applications. Suitable to be used on VFFS machines with thermal or ultrasonic sealing and flowpack.
