Bischof + Klein will be presenting one of the latest developments in its FFS film B+K PowFlex at POWTECH, from 19 – 21 April 2016, in Nuremberg. B+K Powflex Premium is an easy to vent, sift-proof packaging solution for finely powdered products, with offers advantages during printing and in the filling process.
B+K PowFlex Premium offers significant cost advantages in comparison with paper valve sacks. The unfilled packaging reduces transportation costs by up to 65% and storage costs by up to 80%. In comparison with a normal packing scheme for empty paper sacks, a pallet is able to carry five times the quantity of B+K PowFlex packaging units. The sack filling capacity of the machine technology used is also significantly increased. Turning the sacks after filling is no longer necessary.
Since ventilation takes place via a separate infeed strip on the upper side, this is now suitable for high-quality printed images (pattern repeat or random printing). With its high printing quality, diverse film colours, glossy or matt films, various surface structures and different laminate structures, B+K PowFlex Premium offers entirely new presentation and marketing options.
This plastic packaging offers advantages over paper packaging, particularly for mixtures containing cement. The film packaging reliably protects the content from the elements – without protective packaging. This significantly increases the product's life. The film enables secure and clean transportation due to its high dart impact resistance. B+K PowFlex Premium is also outstandingly suitable for other hygroscopically sensitive products such as chemicals or foodstuffs in powder form.
