MONTBAUR, GERMANY—Klöckner Pentaplast will display applications of a wide range of packaging solutions at two locations during the Pack Expo International 2016 (Booth # E-8118) and the Pharma Expo International (Booth #985) trade shows, both held November 6-9, 2016 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Klöckner Pentaplast will debut three new packaging solutions, including the recently developed Pentafood clikPET packaging design.

Pentafood PET-based Technology for Yogurt Packaging
Klöckner Pentaplast’s award-winning Pentafood clikPET is a PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)-based technology for yogurt packaging designed to be used on major FFS (form-fill-seal) lines, seals, labels and trays. This innovative packaging technology extends the shelf life of yogurt products up to 10 days, offering more flexibility to retailers and suppliers while enhancing consumers’ needs for fresh and natural ingredients. In addition, Pentafood clikPET’s excellent material properties, reduce cup breakage rates to significantly lower levels.

“We are extremely excited to exhibit once more at Pack Expo International and look forward to greeting and engaging with visitors in both the Pack Expo and Pharma Expo halls. Our global organization has multiple new packaging ideas to share that were built through collaboration with clients and driven by specific, custom market needs,” states Klöckner Pentaplast global marketing director of food and consumer packaging Stuart Ball.

Broad Range of Packaging and Printing Films
Klöckner Pentaplast’s product line on display will include 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) will also be shown.
