43% less CO2 impact
SCANFILL consists of 48% polypropylene and 52% mineral, which gives it many beneficial properties. In addition to the superb environmental benefits, the mineral gives strength and stiffness, allowing production of thinner foil. The mineral also provides higher heat conductivity and better forming properties. SCANFILL offers many choices in regarding to color and appearance of matt and/or blank, and whether it should contain a barrier layer (EVOH).
The unique SCANFILL materials are particularly suitable for use in the traditional blow-moulding and thermoforming processes, but also for example in injection moulding. At Treform Packaging we regard this as the material of the future. Completely unique properties that give our customers and purchasers enormous advantages in a competitive market. The materials are approved for food contact.Read more about SCANFILL under Quality & Environment here on the website.
Reduced environmental impact. Increased productivity. More stable price. Increased stiffness. Excellent moulding properties. High thermal stability. Good barrier properties.
SCANFILL has a superior environmental profile in comparison with conventional plastic packaging materials. The content of mineral additionally gives the packaging better heat resistance, which is advantageous in the autoclaving process and for heating in microwave ovens.
As SCANFILL is filled to around half with mineral, it is not possible to obtain transparent packaging.
SCANFILL is well suited to rigid plastic packaging in most areas where transparency is not a requirement. The material is available for trays, jars and bottles. SCANFILL is well suited to applications for microwave ovens in packaging where extra stiffness is required.
SCANFILL has a paper-like feel and is identified chemically in the same way as the polymer it contains, PP.
