Nordenia packaging film made using NorCell foaming technology weighs up to 40% less than conventional film of same thickness, said to have high-puncture resistance, excellent sealing ability, great printability

GREVEN, Germany , June 1, 2012 (press release) – NORDENIA is the first packaging company to successfully implement the NorCell technology in flexible packaging. The multinational film manufacturer and converter is therefore meeting the demands of the growing importance of the topic of sustainability and resource conservation.

The highlight of the NorCell technology: the weight of flexible packaging is greatly reduced using a physical, controlled foaming process without reducing the film thickness. This "lightweight construction film" weighs up to 40 percent less than conventional film. The material is therefore intelligently and efficiently used. Surface structures with unique haptics of the film can be achieved through the patented foaming technology. At the same time, packaging made with NorCell is characterized by a high puncture resistance, excellent sealing ability and great printability. This therefore meets all of the customer requirements for high quality, flexible product packaging. Another advantage: the reduced packaging weight is also noticeable as a saving for the customer with the transportation costs and also later with the disposal charges.

The technology pioneer NORDENIA is active throughout Europe as an exclusive contact for all matters relating to NorCell technology for flexible packaging. In combination with the well-founded expertise of NORDENIA, high quality packaging is currently being produced for the food, petcare, wet wipe, detergent and hygiene.
