Brampton Engineering Inc. (BE) today announced further innovation with their market leading AquaFrost® (water quenched) multi-layer blown film technology. With 17 AquaFrost® lines sold on a global basis the Company continues its development program that is focused on ongoing improvements in customer economics and performance.
The latest introductions are in two areas. First the new Vari-Seal Aqua-Ring™ adds a remarkable ability to control water removal for a range of bubble diameters seen during different polymer shrink rates. In addition BE is releasing another advancement that allows our customers to produce thinner gauge while maintaining high output rates and bubble stability.
Aquafrost blown film performs significantly better than cast film for thermoformed packaging; not only does the film have improved clarity and gloss, it also offers enhanced softness and higher puncture resistance. Furthermore, our customers see improved economics due to very low scrap rates and superior production rates. The high gloss finish and ease of conversion to bags and pouches makes the film highly attractive to the food industry.
