TicinoPlast leading player in polyethilene blown film extrusion
Founded in 1967 Ticinoplast is a leading player in polyethylene blown film extrusion in the food, industrial and pharmaceutical flexible packaging markets.
It currently operates with 10 extrusion lines from 1 to 5 layers. Ticinoplast can be trusted as a real partner of technological innovation thanks to its commitment in Research and Development combined with a real focus on the market evolution. This approach allows Ticinoplast to offer, besides traditional sealing films, a complete and wide range of specialty films.
Ticinoplast‘s films are the results of strict collaborations with suppliers and customers in order to create and offer the best packaging solutions. Ticinoplast turns its attention to customer service and offers, besides a careful industrial planning, also logistics services.
Over the last years, following a growing interest to environmental topics, Ticinoplast has directly faced the plastic topic concentrating its Research & Developing efforts in order to offer circular economy solutions to flexible packaging market.
Stiff printable films, both in flexo printing and in rotogravure, are already available and are designed to be laminated with smooth and sealable films.
Ticinoplast also produce compostable films that could be laminated with paper in order to give an excellent sealability, have also developed special films for fresh vegetables and bakery markets.
Reduction of plastic content
Another important argument faced is reduction of plastic quantity in a film, Ticinoplast has developed some foamed films with a reduction of polyethylene till 20% in weight compared to a traditional film.
For a further contribution to the circular economy, we have shared our know-how relating to the world of packaging with international partners in order to develop bi-oriented polyethylene films. These films, which guarantee superior optical and mechanical characteristics compared to traditional films, will revolutionize the world of packaging in the near future.
