Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and flexible metallized films like aluminum foil, are widely used for confectionary and salty snacks packaging. Flexible packaging is the fastest growing packaging type driven by innovations including zippers, gussets and windows. Flexible packaging is also popular because of portion control packaging and lower transportation costs.
Griffiin Rutgers has a variety of Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO) from which you can choose to meet your specific needs. They deliver high resolution, variable data marks on a variety of film stocks and aluminum foil packaging with a selection of ribbon colors for added contrast. Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) and Thermal Ink Jet (TIJ) printers can be used for printing on flexible films and to apply codes before or after the film is formed and packaged, offering integration options.
Aluminum foil is one of the most popular types of labels that is being used by numerous companies for various packaging needs. Labels made out of aluminum foil and laminated for extra durability are chosen by businesses for their tagging and labeling needs due to the many benefits that come with such a choice.
Beyond the attractive silvery color that these tags have, they offer a rather low-cost due to the abundance of aluminum on the planet. These tags are also chosen due to the number of marking methods that can be used on them.
Aluminum foil labels can be marked using a wide array of marking methods and can be shaped in any form for your particular product or products. They can also be made in a wide variety of sizes. You will also find that labels made with aluminum foil can carry any design, be it copy or graphics, making it great for many types of products. Aluminum foil designed for packaging comes in many different gauges, making it a good choice for a variety of items.
Some examples of uses of aluminum foil packaging would be:
Hard sweets and toffees, chocolate sweets and other types of chocolate. For instance, individual pieces, along with larger bags.
Desserts, yogurts, cheese, coffee creamer, milk powder and butter. Many lids are now being constructed out of aluminum foil, as are the seals indicating the product has not been tampered with.
Tablets and oral suspensions. Many items are now being packaged in blister pack types of containers. All of which have a unique set of regulations. The seals on oral suspensions also can contain printed information required by law.
Digital Printing allows you to have your company information, label formats, and other necessary information printed directly onto the aluminum foil labels with the use of a digital printer.
By using digital printing, the aluminum foil packaging can have very colorful and vibrant graphics, which makes them an ideal choice within the food and pharmaceutical industries.
