APPE to Showcase Technical Innovations

Emballage Preview Information, APPE, Stand 6F079

Mending, (PresseBox) - APPE, the packaging division of LSB and Europe's leading provider of rigid plastic packaging solutions, will demonstrate several of its very latest technical innovations at Emballage 2012, 3 of which have been shortlisted for Emballage's packaging Innovation awards

The company will officially launch its range of hot-fill pasteurisable jars and unveil a new technique for enhanced performance for heat-set bottles. Also on show will be its pioneering ActivSeal® barrier technology and DeepGrip® bottles.

APPE's new double blow technology, announced earlier this year as a result of a strategic partnership with Nissei ASB GmbH (Europe), allows the production of high clarity PET jars in a variety of designs suitable for products such as sauces, tomato based foods, jams, pickles and vegetables. Benefits include light weight, safety and improved environmental impacts compared to existing glass formats.

For heat set bottles, APPE's newly-launched Active Hinge incorporates a design that provides an enhanced performance including improved filling, greater design flexibility, lighter weight and smoother walls.

The company's breakthrough barrier system for juices, ActivSeal®, combines excellent protection against oxygen ingress and vitamin C loss with improved clarity compared to traditional barrier materials and no impediment to the recycling process. In addition, the technology is cost effective for smaller size bottles, and without the extra haze that other monolayer barriers cause.

APPE's DeepGrip® PET bottles, which are available in sizes up to 7 litres, feature a deep recess each side that creates an effective integral handle to offer enhanced convenience for the dairy and juice markets. Equally important, for high impact branding and enhanced aesthetics and on-shelf appeal, the clarity of the PET enables products to be fully visible while the material's renowned design flexibility allows the production of bespoke, eye-catching designs.

The bottles also offer valuable sustainability benefits with significant light-weight savings over equivalent HDPE bottles as well as clip-on handles or boxed grips. PET containers are fully recyclable and the DeepGrip® solution ensures a single-material bottle for the recycling stream.
