Science and Technology of Flexible Packaging : Multilayer Films from Resin and Process to End Use
about this item
Written by an expert with over 25 years experience in packaging, this book is a comprehensive guide to the use of plastic films in flexible packaging, covering scientific principles, properties, processes and end use considerations.
The book brings the science of multilayer films to the practitioner in a concise and impactful way, providing the fundamental understanding required to improve product design, material selection and processes. This includes information on why one material is favoured over another for a particular application, or how the film or coating affects material properties.
Detailed descriptions and analysis of the key properties of packaging films are provided from both an engineering and scientific perspective. End-use effects are also covered in detail, providing key insight into the way that the products being packaged influence film properties and design.
The book bridges the gap between key scientific literature and the practical challenges faced by the flexible packaging industry, providing essential scientific insight, best practice techniques, environmental sustainability information and key principles of structure design to enable engineers and scientists to deliver superior products with reduced development time and cost.
• A comprehensive reference book, providing essential information on all aspects of multilayer films in flexible packaging. • Aids in material selection and processing, shortening development times and delivering stronger products. • Bridges the gap between scientific principles and key challenges in the packaging industry, with practical explanations to assist practitioners in overcoming those challenges
