The 54th edition of the French Packaging Awards took place in Paris on the 26th of November.
Another string to add to our bow was won in the ‘ENVIRONMENT/SUSTAINABILITY’ category where Bolloré were honoured for its Bolphane® BHE 120 shrink film which is part of our extensive film range.
The jury, composed of professionals from the industry, liked Bollore’s ‘optimal use of raw materials, allowing for a source reduction while maintaining the final product’s high performances’.
As specialist in ultra thin packaging films, Bolloré innovates once again with its Bolphane® BHE 120, the first 9 micron 100% recyclable polyolefin shrink film.
This film also gives a much longed for answer to environmental and economical issues as fewer raw materials are used, representing a weight reduction of up to 40%. Furthermore, less energy is needed for processing, allowing a machine setting of at least 20° C less in the shrink tunnel compared to competition.
An increased length per roll results in less downtime on packaging lines, and also in savings on storage space and a decreased quantity of packaging material to handle (core tubes, pallets, boxes…).
The Bolphane® BHE 120 shrink film has been perfectly adapted to high-speed packaging of small and medium-sized articles like magazines and booklets, gift-wrap, multimedia products and stationery and was tested successfully on leading-brand automatic packaging machines coming out on top in every instance.
