GORDONSVILLE, VA—Klöckner Pentaplast is displaying applications of a wide range of packaging solutions in booth #S-6625 (South Hall, Lower Level) during the PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015 show, September 28-30, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

kp will be debuting a new high performing floatable shrink label film, Pentalabel ClearFloat, designed to increase efficiency in the recycling process; the first visual form-fill seal package prototype from the new marketing alliance between Klöckner Pentaplast and Berry Plastics Group, Inc.; and will update on kp’s new packaging innovation facility, the kp i.center, home of the expanded BlisterPro XCEL suite of design services.

New Pentalabel ClearFloat Floatable Shrink Label Films
The Pentalabel shrink film line has expanded to include a new high performing floatable label film, Pentalabel ClearFloat. This family of films is designed for customers who are interested in meeting the standards set by the recycling community, while providing the clarity, processability and durability required of today’s consumer labels. Pentalabel ClearFloat films meet the Design for Recycling Guidelines as set by the Association of Postconsumer Plastics Recyclers, which allows for the highest degree of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) container recycling. These new films are engineered to offer high performing shrink percentages for optimal design freedom and to impact the visual presentation of the product due to the film’s superior clarity.

Klöckner Pentaplast and Berry Plastics Marketing Alliance Debuts First Visual Form-fill Seal Package
The companies are presenting the alliance’s first visual form-fill seal package at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015, at both the Klöckner Pentaplast booth #S-6625 and Berry Plastics Group, Inc. booth #S-5919. The prototype has applications with a variety of food products that require extended shelf-life and high visibility, including packaged meats, cheeses and fresh pastas. The package is also ideal for a wide range of nonfood products, for example, personal care products, that require tamper evidence and easy opening.

Klöckner Pentaplast kp i.center and Design Services
This past spring, Klöckner Pentaplast Group introduced the company’s new packaging innovation facility, the kp i.center, located in Charlottesville, VA.  Home to the Pharmaceutical Film Division’s newly expanded BlisterPro XCEL suite of consulting, design, stability and prototyping services, the kp i.center provides a collaborative space created to help global pharmaceutical and other customers bring products to market more quickly and economically.

Broad range of packaging and printing films
Klöckner Pentaplast’s product line on display includes films for food products (Pentafood), pharmaceuticals (Pentapharm), shrink films (Pentalabel), medical devices (Pentamed), and general-purpose thermoforming (Pentaform).  Applications of other specialty films for all-plastic boxes (Pentaclear), and static-sensitive electronic devices (Pentastat) are also being shown.
