FFS or called Form Fill Seal films are widely used in the petrochemical industry or other type industries requiring fully automated and high speed packaging of granulates, dry chemicals and powders. FFS film packaging is increasingly showing significant cost savings for a completed pack in comparison with pre-made sacks and other forms of packaging.
With the machine converting the film into the finished pack, taking out that initial production cost, means you can have more control over how your finished pack looks and performs. In recognition of this, investment has been made in the latest extrusion technology from, Windmöller & Hölscher, Germany so that we can offer the best technical and high quality FFS solutions for your packaging needs. With our expertise we have developed a range of FFS films that perform consistently in tubular film.
Our state-of-the art extrusion ensures that we can offer technically better films for improved performance on all packaging lines, when stored and during transportation. Lower gauge (thinner) films that put us at the forefront of the market allow us to tailor the product to your needs, meaning greater packing speeds, lower inventory costs, a reduced finished pack cost and very satisfied customers.
FFS films are supplied in rolls with embossing or without embossing, a gusseted tube format. Specialties include full and segmented perforation, ‘hot fill’ packing at up to 100 ̊C, high strength co-ex films, UN dangerous goods certified, low friction inner for easy flow inside the sack, high friction outer layer for best pallet stability and other technical solutions. High quality flexographic printing is available in up to 6 colors, and dimensions are designed for best fit to existing filling lines.
Tubular FFS Film
The FFS film tube is fed into the filling machine, the bag is base-sealed and cut, formed and filled, and then top sealed.
Number of film layers: 3, Bag width 45-65 cm (double width).
Film thickness: 100-250 micron. With or without Embossing as customer requirement.
