Designed to block humidity and oxygen, this solution helps to extend the preservation of products by up to 24 months, while food products packaged in this way retain the highest level of quality. PACCOR will unveil this innovation at the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.
The PACCOR Group has developed a multi-layer plastic-barrier sheet intended to package food products that do not require cool storage for preservation. The shelf life of products packaged with this coextruded sheet can be extended by as much as two years. PACCOR will present its novel packaging solution at the ROSUPAK trade fair, in Moscow, in mid-June.
PACCOR offers four basic reel structures, which are intended for FFS (Form/Fill/Seal) machines. The PS/Evoh/PE structure is intended for the packaging of stewed fruit, fresh fruit, cold cuts and desserts, while the PP/Evoh/PP structure, which is microwavable and sterilizable, is designed for the packaging of baby food, pre-prepared food and pet food. The PS/PE structure is suitable for cheese, fish and for industrial applications, and the PS/Evoh/PS form is designed for the packing of fresh products.
As each food company has its own specific requirements, PACCOR also manufactures made-to-measure sheets in accordance with its customers’ specific requirements and in order to achieve a perfect match with their packaging machines.
In order to increase barrier properties, PACCOR is also able to design a sheet made up of nine different layers, incorporating an added barrier to protect the packaged product from light. The thickness of each layer and its formulation can be adapted upon request. Sheets can also be produced in a two-colour version, with white on the inside and a colour on the outside: this is designed to meet the growing demand from companies to make packaging relevant from a marketing standpoint.
In terms of equipment, PACCOR has a fleet of high-quality modern machines, which are fitted with the latest technology, such as autoflex, and an online thickness-measurement tool. Thanks to its machines, PACCOR can provide a constant and accurate spread of the master layers (EVOH, PE and bonding agents).
PACCOR specialises in the development and manufacturing of high-quality packaging solutions for the consumer-goods sector, and has a wide range of products that include containers, lids, trays and coextruded sheets for food and non-food applications.
PACCOR has over 1,000 employees working in four countries, as well as five factories.PACCOR will attend the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.
The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...
