RETAL Baltic Films invests in FFS testing capability

RETAL Baltic Films has recently invested in further Form-Fill-Seal testing equipment at its Lithuanian plant in order to deliver a complete analysis of the bottom and top packaging elements for its food and beverage customers.

Viktorija Griziene, general manager at RETAL Baltic Films, says, “We have integrated complete FFS capability to complement our long-standing expertise in films. We can advise our customers in selecting the right materials to get the optimum result.”

Food and beverage brands often face the challenge of a reliable seal where the bottom tray and the top lidding film meet, particularly if they change materials, so RETAL Baltic Films is keen to highlight how it can efficiently test how the two materials interact at its own dedicated testing facility. Griziene adds, “We’re constantly checking how it all works during the initial phase so the process is smooth on the customers’ production line, without the need for downtime.”

Valuable time is saved as well as valuable resources, with the on-site FFS testing capability from RETAL Baltic Films able to integrate sustainability-focused downgauging without compromising on the properties’ performance.
