Offering technologies and services such as laminating, coating, rotogravure and flexographic printing, metalizing, holography, slitting, in-house graphics preparation, and cylinder engraving, Constantia Flexibles markets products including push-through and peelable blister foils; cold-formable foils for absolute barrier to moisture and oxygen; heat-seal coatings for PVC, PVdC, Aclar laminations, PET, PP and Barex; two-sided registered printing for compliance-style packaging; text- and bar code-printable white-lacquered foils; and child-resistant, senior friendly and anti-counterfeiting structures.
According to a press release issued by Constantia Flexibles, the company won in the following categories:
|Constantia Flexibles was recognized for its Stick Pack Opening Solution|
• Consumer Convenience: Constantia Flexibles was recognized for its Stick Pack Opening Solutions. The product’s foil laminate comprises PET/AL/PE or even paper/AL/PE to protect contents against moisture, oxygen, and light. A laser perforation below the seal ensures easy opening of the stick. The PET or paper in the area of the laser seam is partially removed and the aluminum layer remains intact, ensuring impermeability.
• Resource Efficiency: Constantia Flexibles was honored for its Blister Lidding Foil with Water-based Primer. The product's water-based lacquer system is an environmentally friendly, sustainable solution for many types of packaging, the company reports.
• Technical Innovation: Constantia Flexibles earned an award for its Staxyn Child-Resistant Blister Pack. The product combines child safety with ease-of-use as its paper-free laminate is conducive to hassle-free clean room production.
“We pride ourselves on offering outstanding products across a broad range of packaging niches,” said Frederick Lutz, Director of Sales & Service for Constantia Flexibles, in a press release. “We are grateful to the European Aluminium Foil Association for these distinctions, which help validate the research, creativity and dedication we bring to work each day at Constantia Flexibles.”
