Publisher Comments:

In the food, personal care products, and over-the-counter pharmaceutical industries, packaging provides safety, freshness and visual appeal for point of sale awareness. The great majority of flexible packaging films are multilayer in order to combine different polymers for enhanced properties. Coatings such as PVDC, acrylic and vacuum deposited aluminum are used to provide barrier. Differentially placed additive packages add special surface properties and in many cases adhesives are required to join incompatible layers. Cost is a relative assessment and multilayer films provide effective packaging for products in these industries. There are many available books covering food packaging; rightly so, as this is a complex and important industry. This book offers to fill a hole in the existing published books in its comprehensive treatment of the technology behind the manufacture of multilayer films and in providing descriptions and key performance properties of many flexible packaging films. It will be of primary interest to managers, engineers, and technicians who invent, design, and manufacture flexible packaging films. It will also be of interest to individuals in the food, personal care products, and over-the-counter pharmaceutical industries who specify and buy the packaging for their products.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive and highly practical survey of the materials, hardware, processes and applications of flexible plastic films. Aimed at a wide audience of engineers, technicians, managers, purchasing agents and users, Multilayer Flexible Packaging provides a thorough introduction to the manufacturing and applications of flexible plastic films, covering: Materials Hardware and Processes Multilayer film designs and applications The materials coverage includes detailed sections on polyethylene, polypropylene and additives. The dies used to produce multilayer films are explored in the hardware section, and the process engineering of film manufacture explained, with a particular focus on meeting specifications and targets. The section includes unique coverage of the problematic area of bending technology, providing a unique explanation of the issues involved in the blending of viscoelastic non-Newtonian polymeric materials. About the author John R. Wagner, Jr. is President of Crescent Associates, Inc., a consulting firm that specializes in plastic films and flexible packaging. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BS and MS in Chemical Engineering.
