Skinnypack concept

SKINNYPACK is a new eco-sustainable packaging concept,
which allows to obtain a container with the functionality of a rigid pack
but with the lightness of a flexible one.
This result has been obtained due to the use of IMS film melted with the supporting frame during its injection molding process.

Skinnypack concept

The melted Polypropylene start to flow only inside a pre-channelled cavity. The frame so created effectively fuses itself with the IMS film

IMS technology

IMS (In Mould Shield) is a membrane made of two or more layers
which assures safe embedding of inks and exellent graphic.

Differently from standard IML label, IMS film can be made by different material
(compostable) and can be perfectly fitted to the injected material.
Moreover, it guarantees food contact and top-load resistance.

Skinnypack benefits

Skinny Pack compostable technology allows to:

reducing the amount of plastic up to 60%
potentially be easily flattened for disposal
creating a 100% compostable container in both rigid frame and flexible part
using masterbatch colors completely compostable as well
having a printed artwork, high offset resolution all across the surface
no compromising top-load and torsion compare to the traditional rigid pack
replace standard traditional pack to an eco-friendly one without having to invest in new machinery

Skinnypack possibilities

Skinnypack technology can be applied on different shapes
and sizes up to the client’s wishes and idea
