Rigid packaging


Rigid packaging is made from rigid plastic materials, such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), or other similar polymers. Unlike flexible packaging, which is characterized by its ability to conform and adapt to the shape of the product, rigid packaging maintains its shape and structure. It finds applications in various industries, including food and beverage, personal care, healthcare, household products, and industrial goods. It is used for packaging items such as beverages, food products, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, cleaning agents, and more. Overall, plastic rigid packaging offers a combination of strength, versatility, and protective properties, making it a popular choice for a wide range of products across multiple industries.

As an example for of rigit packaging we can point the milk bottle, thanks to a three-layer bottle produced from polyethylene, combined with a polypropylene (PP) or high density polyethylene (HDPE) screw cap, the milk is able to retain its unique flavor and nutritional value. This combination of materials creates a protective shield against oxygen, light, and other external elements that could potentially compromise the freshness and quality of the milk. As a result, we can relish the goodness of milk every day, knowing that its distinct flavor and nutritional benefits remain intact.

Our expertise extends beyond commodity resins like polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and polystyrene (PS), allowing us to bring the best chemistry together to improve your rigid packaging parts. Whether you are involved in the production of bottles, caps, cups, trays, buckets, pails, lids, or any other rigid structure, we have the knowledge and resources to supply or help enhance the final application performance of your products.

Our portfolio for rigid packaging includes:

  • Low (LDPE) and High density polyethlylene (HDPE) for injection and blow moulding
  • Linear low density (LLDPE) for injection moulding
  • Polypropylene homopolymer (PPH), block copolymers (PPC) and random copolymers (PPR) for thermoforming, injection and blow moulding
  • Polymers and elastomers produced by sustainable raw materials, these products guarantee identical performance, quality and properties, as they do not differ in chemical composition and physical-mechanical performance from standard products. There are two main product groups:
    • Products produced with a "recycled oil" (r-Oil), a pyrolysis oil obtained from the chemical recycling process of mixed plastic waste
    • Products produced from bio-naptha
  • Postconsumer compounds (PCR) - giving new life to plastic waste through recycling, while reducing the carbon footprint of the produced details
  • Masterbatches - designed specifically for rigid packaging offer numerous benefits to producers, including cost savings and the ability to create visually appealing packaging like multilayer bottles, yoghurt cups, jerry cans, cosmetic packaging, caps and closures and many more. Specail effects like marble like, wood like, pearl, glitter, fluorescent and many more are available
  • Additives - our portfolio of products provide a variety of effects and benefits to differentiate and increase the value of rigid packaging. For example, we offer neutral color masterbatches for thermoplastic containers, high UV filters for PET bottles, and efficient acid-scavenging effects for molded articles. These additives enhance the aesthetics, protect against UV radiation, and maintain product integrity. Our goal is to optimize the value and functionality of your rigid packaging, ensuring a visually appealing appearance, extended shelf life, and enhanced consumer experience.
  • Medical grades - to the ridgid packaging, we offer a wide range of sophisticated products specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of high value-added applications, particularly in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors.
