Partnership with Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics

Production of fully recyclable pillow pouches in India

Syntegon has collaborated with Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics (P&SP) to enhance its portfolio of sustainable packaging solutions for the Indian market. Syntegon’s vertical form-fill-seal packaging machines SVI 2600 and SVZ 1803 AR are successfully handling Dow’s INNATE™ TF Polyethylene Resins for Tenter Frame Biaxial Orientation (TF-BOPE) to produce fully recyclable pillow pouches.

The Syntegon packaging machines equipped with the new PHS 2.0 sealing option handle polyethylene (PE) material designed with INNATE TF films. They produce 1 kg bags with an output of up to 65 bags/minute. This is a significant improvement compared to the current rate of 45 bags/minute for PE pouches, and a timely response to an industry urgently looking for high performance mono-material sustainable packaging solutions.

“At Syntegon we offer proven solutions in partnership with material suppliers like Dow P&SP ensuring sustainability without compromise – maintaining bag quality, production speed and right barrier to ensure shelf life,” comments Chandra Prasad, executive director of Syntegon India.
