Suominen developed new Amerfeel film

Suominen Flexible Packaging has developed a new plastic film with unusual laminated surface for packaging of food and hygiene products.
Suominen Flexible Packaging has developed a new plastic film with unusual laminated surface for packaging of food and hygiene products. The special feature of the Amerfeel film is its comfortable rough surface. This matt surface gives natural outlook for customer’s product and stands out as a new packaging solution on the shelf.

The new product, Amerfeel film, was launched in the markets together with Finnish Bakery Rosten when the bakery launched its new “Hellä-täytepulla” (baked buns with fillings) packed in Amerfeel film.

In the case of Bakery Rosten, the packaging has been manufactured from polypropylene but a range of possible materials is wide. With different film combinations, it is possible to pay more attention to the requirements that food and hygiene products are demanding from its packaging. In this way Suominen is able to improve for example freezability of the product or control breathability of the film. A possibility to print in the transparent window up to ten colours brings added value for customer’s product.

Suominen manufactures Amerfeel packaging as ready-made bags as well as plain film. Amerfeel film is suitable for different packaging needs from manual packaging to automatic packaging lines.
