Thermoformable base webs – a full range of environmentally optimised materials for high performance 

The base webs are developed to do their job with minimised use of resources. Tailored barrier properties and mechanical strength reduce the risk for food waste, renewable or recycled content minimises the environmental impact and smartly designed convenience features and attractive looks help promote your product to the consumer.  

Our comprehensive range of thermoformable base webs cover a multitude of applications such as high barrier MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) materials where excellent oxygen barrier is essential, paper-based materials ideal to support the branding of ecologic products,  materials with outstanding puncture resistance to products with sharp edges and films with exact easy peel-performance for safe use in the healthcare sector.
