Did you know that a large percentage of flexible packaging in Australia uses flexographic printing and not high-quality gravure printing? This means that you are not getting the best quality product that is available plus exposing your packaging to more print defects. Customers then see these defects and choose not to purchase your product. Finewrap only offers high quality gravure printing that positively impacts the buyer whilst having the ability to keep gravure print cylinder costs less than flexographic.
Are you aware that most Australian print manufactures only check their products at the line and not after. This leaves your business exposed to product malfunction. Finewrap ensure all products are checked at the line with additional inspections during the manufacturing process.
Now most of you are aware of BPA and BPA free products. In recent times BPA has been removed from most food grade plastics due to its links to various health issues. However what you may not be aware of is the use of phthalates. Phthalic acids are used to make products such as plastic packaging film, containers and medical tubing, they are also used in polyvinyl chloride plastics to help them flex easier. What’s now concerning is early testing of phthalates on laboratory animals is showing negative effects on the reproductive system. This suggests these properties could be dangerous when mixed with food products and later consumed. Over the past 25 years the use of phthalates has doubled world wide. Consequently it’s wise to consider the use of these products and how they may effect your existing packaging or just keep clear of them.
