Smart packaging solutions for demanding packaging needs
Sustainable product features
Today’s consumers are well informed about the environmental impact of a product. For decades Rani Plast has been increasing the share of recycled polyethylene in our packaging films. Today, we offer recycled versions of all our industry films with many product solutions to choose from.
We also offer packaging solutions made entirely or partially from renewable biological resources. Biobased raw material is primarily used in domestic household products such as waste bags and food applications such as bread bags.
Biodegradable plastics are commonly produced with renewable materials which, in the right conditions, degrade naturally and are harmless to nature. Biodegradable film is mainly used in the manufacture of compostable waste bags suitable for domestic and professional use.
Technical product features
This is usually multilayer packaging film designed to protect the content from oxygen, moisture, solar UV radiation and odour. Our latest production technology allows us to manufacture oxygen barrier films to large width dimensions for agricultural use.
Our MDO (machine direction oriented) film is used to describe a thin but mechanically very strong film. Stronger MDO films can also be used in more sustainable mono-material laminates.
Our innovative pest-repellent bale wrap contains a non-toxic, natural active ingredient which, through odour and taste, is repulsive to crows, ravens, rats and mice. The repellent ingredient can be applied to other packaging applications requiring similar protective properties.
Quality manager, Joacim Kaitajärvi, breathed a sigh of relief after the conclusion of a long and extensive certification process. And he has every reason to be satisfied. The BRC audit in May resulted in a good A-rating and Joacim has already noticed several improvements in work safety and job satisfaction. Sales manager, Jan Knutar, is also pleased to have achieved certification and looks forward to building new customer relationships in the food and pharmaceutical industry with absolute confidence.
Rani Plast’s customers increasingly demand the use of sustainable raw materials in packaging films.
