Primary packaging provides direct protection for your products. For example, it must withstand particularly high or low temperatures, or UV radiation, for a defined period. Secondary packaging offers additional protection or acts as transport packaging by bundling units together. Wrapping in film binds the packaging units together to form a strong and stable package.
This requires extremely tear-resistant and stretchable films able to withstand the effects of the production, handling and logistics process and which do not fall apart during acceleration, cornering or sudden braking when being transported via forklift truck or lorry. Reliable protection can only be provided by perfectly matching the film to the product and the logistics process. At DUO PLAST, you get packaging consultants and packaging optimization from a single source. This means you’re on the safe side.
In our own DUO LAB Technology Centre, we will use standardized, recognized procedures to determine for you whether your packaging solutions will withstand the stresses of the particular supply chain.
Nowadays, sustainability is not a “nice to have” feature, but an obligation. Packaging solutions which do not take resource consumption and the possibilities for recycling and waste reduction into account are simply a no-go. Not least because manufacturers and distributors of transport packaging are, according to German packaging legislation (VerpackG), obliged to accept returned packaging materials and to reuse or recycle them.
DUO PLAST fulfils this responsibility by using sustainable films which are 100% recyclable – and which are made of up to 80% post-industrial recyclate, at least 25% post-consumer recyclate, or which are organically-based and consist of up to 80% sustainable raw material. This helps reduce the carbon footprint significantly and minimize packaging waste – without compromising on the properties of the product. This is the way to optimize packaging.
Our packaging consultants will check whether organically-based films or films made of recyclate are suitable for packaging your products, so that we can conserve resources together.
