RKW Presents FPO® at Packaging and Converting Executive Forum

Frankenthal (Germany), February 28, 2017 - RKW is present at the Packaging and Converting Executive Forum (PACE) in Amsterdam from 28 February to 02 March, 2017. The company will exhibit its FPO® film as a new smart, paper-like packaging alternative.

As a filled polyolefin film, FPO® offers significant advantages over other materials for all kinds of flexible packaging applications, particularly in the food industry, FPO® films are especially suited as aluminum-free packaging for fatty dairy products such as butter, margarine and cottage cheese.

Consuming far less energy in the production process than aluminum, FPO® offers additional sustainability features due to its mono-material composition. .The film gives excellent barrier properties to light, oxygen and water vapor and provides for outstanding printing. At PACE, the RKW team looks forward to engaging with packaging engineers and innovators, brand owners, converters and printers to discuss new and exciting solutions that match the latest trends in the market.
