Klöckner Pentaplast to Display New Packaging Solutions at Pack Expo International and Coexisting Pharma Expo 2016

Klöckner Pentaplast will display applications of a wide range of packaging solutions at two locations during the Pack Expo International (Booth # E-8118) and the Pharma Expo International (Booth # 985) 2016 shows, November 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. kp 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-based technology for yogurt packaging designed to be used on major FFS 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 Stuart Ball, Global Marketing Director, Food and Consumer Packaging.

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.
