Dave's Diary

Dave will post regular updates on happenings around the world from exhibitions, film procedures, print and pre-press developments.

UK Bakery Packaging

What do we mean by bakery? Well, it includes everything from your morning crumpet to your teatime cake treat, to your ‘sitting on the sofa with a glass of wine’ pizza.

A versatile plastic film that excels in having an exceptional combination of high tensile strength, chemical resistance, thermal stability, flatness, high temperature resistance and thermal and electrical insulation properties.
