Several decades ago, when Polysack was searching for a technology to manufacture highly durable fibers, the MDO (machine-direction orientation) technology was selected as the optimal match. After years of experimentation, gaining knowhow and expertise, and acquiring state-of-the-art equipment, Polysack is one of the few companies in the world that specializes in manufacturing film using MDO technology, and is an expert in this field today. Polysack‘s production facility accommodates leading edge machinery including four production lines equipped with inline MDO-extruders for manufacturing multi-layered blown film, in addition to one offline mono-oriented MDO stretching unit, and two slitting machines. Polysack’s extra-thin film is highly cost-effective as compared to other blown and cast films. It is manufactured with mono-oriented multi-layer polyolefins, providing considerable savings in material and energy, and yielding superior quality and strength.
When used for labelling containers, Polysack film forms the sleeves which are fitted and shrunk simultaneously, thus eliminating the sleeve production and inspection step. Furthermore, Polysack film stretches in the same direction as the movement of the containers on the conveyer belt, increasing labelling speed and efficiency.
Using MDO film, Polysack has enabled packaging producers to significantly reduce their costs while gaining an enhanced packaging material with multiple benefits, described as follows:
