Thin Wall Packaging & Pails
With tomorrow’s resource challenges, packaging has a crucial role to play, particularly in helping to reduce waste in the global food supply and in protecting goods for consumers; while complying with ever more stringent regulations that are put in place to increase food and consumer safety in the industry. In addition to looking good, packaging has to keep products fresher longer whilst preserving their taste and smell. These challenges need to be met by lowering weight and cost through down gauging, faster production cycle times - minimizing waste and the environmental impact. SABIC is helping customers in the packaging industry to meet these challenges with its extensive portfolio of solutions for thin wall packaging.
