      Extrusion & Thermoforming

      PFF employee

      Extrusion

      PFF is a vertically integrated business. We produce our own sheet plastic from a high quantity of food-grade post-consumer recycled (PCR) polymers. We also reprocess our own internal production generated waste.

      Pellets are expertly blended to produce sheet material that meets direct food contact applications such as microwaveable, deep freeze, high clarity and silicone-free packaging. High-quality decoration can be provided by dry-offset printing or pre-printed sheet options.

      Extrusion is suitable for a wide range of food quality packaging solutions as well as FFS applications.

      Technical Specification

      • Suitable for direct food contact applications
      • Material options: polypropylene and PET (the latter can have an optional PE laminate)
      • Sheet produced to a range of gauges from 200 to 1000 micron
      • Variety of colours and Pantone references
      • Standard, high-barrier and deep-freeze food applications
      • Internal anti-slip blends to mitigate sealing and label application issues

      Environmentally Friendly

      ABA construction for our rPET, encapsulating recycled content with a virgin capping layer to ensure a 100% consistent sealing surface. Our rPET contains at least 50% of post-consumer recycled wastes and at least 30% of PFF’s own post-process waste.

      Extrusion Measuring System

      PFF has invested in extrusion measuring systems at Keighley and Washington which gives us the ability to produce a very accurate, uniform polypropylene sheet that is uniformly flat all the way across. SBI systems monitor the sheet constantly and give us the ability to adjust the machines to maximise the specification parameters and improve manufacturing efficiency.

      We see this as an environmental investment as much as a business efficiency investment. It results in less waste and a more focused product environmentally with less plastic being used. And, it gives us the opportunity to be very accurate with customer specifications, rather than operating above and below target weight.

      Thermoforming

      PFF uses the sheet material that we produce on-site to manufacture thermoformed products. They provide a functional and safe method of transporting and displaying goods within the food and non-food retail sectors. Crystal clear PET offers excellent clarity and our many unique shapes can maximise food proportion, perception and visibility. PFF also offers high-quality decoration through our dry offset printing or in-mould labelling services.

        Environmentally friendly

        Thermoformed rPET contains at least 50% of post-consumer recycled wastes and at least 30% of PFF’s own post-process recycled waste.
        Polypropylene is available with 30% of recycled content to help reduce the reliance on virgin polymers.
