Tekni-Plex Europe invests in state of the art low density EPE foam line for closure liners

Tekni-Plex Europe NV (Erembodegem / Belgium; www.tekni-plex.com) has started production with its state-of-the-art, low density EPE foam line in its Erembodegem, Belgium plant. The new installation also enables in-line lamination capability to produce EPE based structures including HDPE, LDPE, Saranex, and custom laminates. This new technology strengthens the global position of Tekni-Plex in the foamed liner market as it complements the already established reputation of the co-extruded Tri-Seal F217 series. Tekni-Plex is now able to offer an even broader range of liner materials, ranging from low density mono-layer EPE foams (200-400kg/m³), laminated EPE foams (including LDPE, HDPE, PET, PTFE, Saranex, PA, ALU/PET, and EVOH), and co-extruded Tri-Seal F217 series to non-foamed TPE and pharmaceutical rubber grades. These materials are mainly used as liners and gaskets in caps, closures and dispensing systems for cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food and chemical applications.

Tekni-Plex Inc. has recently completed a new production hall for its German subsidiary Top-Seals GmbH in Gronau. This will allow Top-Seals to improve the production environment to the highest cleanliness level required by the customers that it serves.

Earlier this year, Tekni-Plex Inc. also acquired Ghiya Extrusions Pvt. Ltd. in India. Ghiya Extrusions is a well established company in Asia and is specialised in the production of foamed materials in co-extruded and laminated structures. Ghiya will soon offer the F-217 series of materials adding an Asia supply point for Tekni-Plex.

Together with the Tri-Seal plants in the USA, Tekni-Plex Group is now the only producer that can offer its local and global customers foamed liner materials produced in 3 continents.

For any question you might have on how to seal a product, Tekni-Plex can assist you in advising the right material. Tekni-Plex has a multi-lingual sales and customer service team that can support you at any time with samples, quotations and technical datasheets.
