In the UK it is estimated that five million tonnes of plastic is used every year, nearly half of which is packaging.
There are several UK initiatives aimed at changing the way plastics are designed, produced, used, re-used, disposed of, and reprocessed by all stakeholders in the plastics chain.

Our heat-sealing technologies can demonstrate film savings and reduce packaging film waste
Our expert engineers work with your team to provide a bespoke heat-sealing solution to help your organisation achieve sustainability objectives and ensure best practise as a user of plastic products
Our heat-sealing solutions are compatible with mono-layer materials. Favoured by large consumer companies, they are easier to recycle than complex films that are difficult to separate into their base materials.
We want to help your organisation achieve its sustainable goals and we’re committed to helping companies produce the most sustainable products possible. This could mean reduction of materials used, using less energy, or working with next generation materials. Or a combination of all three!
Next generation film and paper-based compatibility
With our purpose-built test and development facility, our engineers work in close consultation with customers to create bespoke machinery to seamlessly seal with next generation materials. Our in-house testing ensures the integrity of film/seal samples with our technologies throughout the process.
Our heat-sealing technologies are compatible with:
As consumer demands increase for more sustainable packaging, we are excited to be working with innovative customers that are committed to helping the Circular Economy.
We are currently working in the test phase with a customer that produces water-soluble packaging. This remarkable material is non-toxic, marine safe and completely soluble in warm and hot water.
As science and engineering is constantly evolving, our skilled engineers are passionate about ensuring combability of all new biomaterials with our machines.
The future of sustainable packaging will help our environment - our mission is to be part of the solution.
