Total Lumicene®, the next step forward for Flexible Barrier Packaging

Total, Hosokawa Alpine, Coveris and Hayssen Flexible Systems collaborated along the value chain to demonstrate a new 11-layer high performance barrier packaging solution at K 2016.

This event, held in late October in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the world’s largest trade show for the international plastics and rubber industry.

Using Total Lumicene® PE on their blown film line, Hosokawa Alpine featured an 11-layer high performance barrier film with superior toughness and ideal for food preservation applications.

The extensive Total Lumicene® range, containing both low and medium-to-high density metallocene polyethylene, plays an important role in providing the best product for each layer of an 11-layer barrier film to provide optimum packaging performance. The Total resin formulation boosts the water vapor barrier, which protects the gas barrier block and increases downgauging potential, providing excellent optics and fast sealing. This unique Total offer is quickly becoming a preferred solution for manufacturers.
