Protection against what?

Good packaging must satisfy a variety of criteria. It must protect the contents yet be simple to handle. It should preferably not be damaging to the environment and should, if required, be attractive and saleable. Of these basic criteria, it is actually only handling that is principally controlled by the construction of the packaging. The other factors are primarily controlled through choice of material.

The choice of material for packaging depends on the properties you require and any problems involved. Skultuna Flexible has the experience of developing, producing and supplying technical laminates designed for packaging for food- stuffs, transport, engineering, electronics and other high-tech industries.
Our approach has resulted in unique know-how and experience of how to combine tight and supporting materials in order to produce technical laminates with the properties and performance to meet our customers’ needs.

Specifik specifikations on request

Customer specified materials can be supplied in a variety of combinations using almost any substrate as long as it comes on reels. Please feel free to contact us for an offer without obligations.

In the store, with the end customer looking at the shelves, is a key moment in the sale of a product. We create materials for brand owners who want to attract attention by ensuring their products look the best on shop shelves. And boost sales. In other situations it’s more important to shut various substances out or in. By laminating different kinds of plastic film, metal foils, paper and paperboard, we can create the properties needed for these packaging solutions.
