MEAF delivers FDA/EFSA approved PET sheet extrusion line

Looking to produce energy efficient, single layer, foodgrade PET sheet from 100% Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) material, to meet FDA and/or European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) requirements? With the energyefficient sheet extrusion lines from MEAF Machines in combination with KREYENBORG GmbH & Co. KG’s IR-CLEAN Super-Clean process, we can offer a solution for your requirement!

Please see our video below, of such a sheet extrusion line, for a customer in Europe. Their goal is to produce thermoformed PET trays, from single layer FDA/EFSA approved sheet made with our MEAF extrusion lines.

Ultrathin rigid PP sheet extrusion nears completion

After finalising extrusion lines for projects in Nigeria, Lithuania, China and Indonesia, our team is working on a new project for a customer in the Far East to produce 200 µm (0.2mm) rigid sheet for lid production.

The extensive experience from MEAF in sheet extrusion line manufacturing, combined with the longterm partnership between our companies has resulted in MEAF receiving the award for this ultrathin PP sheet extrusion line.

Physical foaming and barrier sheet possibilities

As (most of us) face the challenges in the packaging market to produce more and more mono materials, increase the uses of recycled material and at the same time keep barrier properties for certain applications.
One of the most commonly used barrier is EVOH in a variety of layer compositions and # of layers. As more and more of our (potential) customer are facing these challenges when it comes to:

  1. Production with maximum flexibility vs. minimum adjustments to the machine configuration;
  2. Cost-effective production of a wide varieties of sheet;
  3. Utilisation of maximum of regrind (up to 100%) and reducing overall material costs for sheet (density reduction), whilst remaining final product properties;
  4. Have a CAPEX which is justifiable for the extra flexibility of producing both barrier sheet as well as standard single or multilayer sheet.

    In order to meet these customer demands, we have run in-house testing for PP and inline lamination of PP-EVOH-PP to create barrier sheet without the additional investment for co-extruders and feedblock.

    This test proves the possibility of lamination of PP – EVOH – PP sheet directly on the physical foamed sheet, providing a cost-effective solution to produce barrier sheet.

Planning to visit any of the above exhibitions? We are looking forward to discuss with your our “green extrusion solutions, consisting of:

  1. Energy consumption reduced up to 65% compared to our competitors
    With the production costs of electricity rapidly rising, MEAF’s H-series extruders provide an energy efficient alternative to reduce energy costs without compromising on quality.
  2. Material usage reduced with environment friendly physical foaming technology
    Integration of physical foaming technology from Promix can be integrated to achieve density reductions between 10 – 30% whilst retaining stackability and product strength properties.
  3. Improved recyclability of carpets, artificial grass and automats
    MEAF’s extrusion coating for thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), and others such as TPU and PVB, provides the possibility to produce a fully recyclable and sustainable product backings.For these applications we partner together with EOC Group as compound supplying partner.
  4. Produce monolayer products with 100% regrind and FDA/EFSA approved food grade sheet
    Our extruders are designed to work with 100% regrind incl. bottle-flakes and can assist you with “tray to tray” production.

Our sales team and our local partners are looking forward to meeting you at any of the above exhibitions around the world!
