This area encompasses all the applications where the films undergo only limited converting processes, generally sealing/bag-making and simple printing.
Typically, these include films designed to be transformed in shopping or carrier bags alongside with specialty bags for heavy duty applications (FFS). If we take wider webs into consideration, stretch hood tubing, a valuable palletizing alternative to stretch-wrapping or shrink-hooding is a fast-growing application. General purpose packaging business, with film direct application, is also experimenting good growth rates, and it is also possible to find specialty applications, such as surface protection and masking films.
This is the usual domain of three layer technologies, again with growing possibilities for five layer systems.
