WHAT'S THE NEWS
Technical developments at macrowill plastic engineering uk are giving extrusion companies what is one of the most eco-friendly, sustainable means of protecting products from extrusion to final destination.
Macrowill has introduced formulae that ensure its protective film optimises a ‘green’ solution.
The composition of its PE film, inks and adhesives mean its entire product range of temporary protection is 100% sustainable. The PE film can be recycled after use. The inks and adhesive used are all water-based.
“Sustainability is a major driver in the customer decision process,” observes Philip May, macrowill plastic engineering uk sales manager. “There tends to be a focus on the sustainability of the physical product or component they are buying, without consideration of the packaging and en-route protection. It is not something that is considered. Yet if we can help enhance the environmental offering, that has good to be positive in helping our customers close the deal.”
macrowill’s range of residue-free PE film for aluminium, plastic and steel profiles is available in a range of roll widths and lengths, in thicknesses from 0.03micron- 0.20micron. Water-based adhesives provide peel strength is to customer requirements, up to 450g/25mm. Standard colours include clear, opaque white, black, blue. Water-based inks enable printing up to six colours.
From its 7-acre facility in the heart of the West Midlands, macrowill plastic engineering uk can deliver stock material; bespoke orders can also be serviced, again fully sustainable. Contact Philip May (Philip.firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out more,
