The advantages of downgauging

Attractive to your wallet and the environment

KIVO Flexible Plastics is a driving force when it comes to downgauging. The advantages for customers and the environment are obvious. Through the development of innovative recipes, significant savings can be realised, whilst maintaining or even improving the quality of the material. The use of thinner film results in less raw material usage, less waste and more meters per reel. Therefore it has positive effects on raw material costs, production, storage and transport efficiency, energy consumption and hence the environment. Reductions in thickness of over 50% are not an exception.
