How Will Brexit Impact Fire Retardant Regulations For Fabrics?

Posted by Phil Morrison on 01-Feb-2019 12:10:42

 

In the closing weeks of 2018, few people can comfortably predict how – in exact terms – Brexit will impact on the normal working regulations of any industry in years to come. The first thing to say is that should the UK secure the implementation period that has been much-vaunted by the government from March 2019, nothing will immediately change. So, this means that anyone who purchases textiles that meet the current EU regulations will be able to do so with full confidence until 2021 at minimum.

‘Getting Away From Plastic Packaging’ - Compostable Packaging For Cereal Bars

Posted by Phil Morrison on 28-Mar-2018 15:00:42

It took 5 billion years to create the earth with it’s natural beauty , but it has taken less than 100 years of plastic film manufacture to help in reducing parts of the planet to a rubbish tip. It’s time to act now.

Copolymers of polyvinylidene chloride (pvdc) are not new and are well known for their use in demanding barrier packaging applications to minimise the permeation of moisture,oxygen and odours. The advantage of pvdc coating is it offers the flexible packaging converter a one stop cost effective process to provide a combination of all three barrier properties, for goods that are susceptible to a short shelf life if they are not provided with the correct level of protection.

Anti-Slip Coating For Pallet Sheets

Posted by Phil Morrison on 27-Dec-2017 11:30:00

Anti-Slip coating is used to lock several tiers of products together to make a solid unitised load that you can manually handle. It prevents items from shifting in transit, which leads to increased stability and safety.

The role of the anti-slip coating is to prevent the slippage of cartons, bags, cases, and other items up to a 45-degree angle. The surface is non-porous and non-adhesive, which means it will feed through automatic dispensers easily, no double feeding required.
