We strive to incorporate advanced technologies to deliver highly personalised responses to packaging needs and contribute to:

  • Extending product life with active packaging.

  • Facilitating the use of packaging: peel-ability, microwaveable, easy open, re-sealable ...

  • Using biodegradable materials.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

We research and develop new materials and printing systems on an ongoing basis. We also develop projects in conjunction with Technological Institutes.

Technological milestones

  • Pioneers in using permeable and heat sealable cellophane for Donuts.

  • Creators of special packaging laminates.

  • Incorporation of electronical cylinder engraving in our processes (In the 1990's).

  • Special treatments available:
    • HIGH GAS BARRIER COATING,, which allows working with standard films (commodities).

    • HIGH UV LIGHT BARRIER COATING.

    • GLOSS / MATT EFFECT Varnish. This is a registry with high chemical and mechanical resistance, which allows us the possibility of obtaining designs with gloss/matt contrasts.

    • Barniz PEARLESCENT EFFECT Varnish. We develop striking packaging with the consumer in mind: metallic ink effects, iridescence, etc ...

    • SPOT VARNISH. We apply a high gloss varnish with two SPOT TYPE components, which guarantees a glossy finishing equal to laminate.

    • ANTIFOGGING VARNISH. Coating application to avoid the fogging effect in the film.

    • We apply a RELEASE lacquer for the implementation of Cold-Seal in monofilm.

  • Development of structures to improve the speed of HFFS packaging machine (Horizontal Form Fill Seal).

  • Development of structures in order to improve the mechanical characteristics of the film to reduce waste in the packaging of sharp products.

INNOVATIVE MILESTONES

  • Forerunners in the development of Cold Seal application in various media: monofilm and duplex laminate complexes (In the 1980's).

  • Forerunners in the use of Coex polypropylene and of metallized printing in the (In the 1990's).

  • Pioneers in Spain in in-line duplex lamination in rotogravure printer with solventless adhesive.

  • The new gravure rotary press allows lamination on solvent lines. Benefits: a print station is released in order to enable the use of one more colour, glue; solvent less glue is environmentally friendly and there is less risk of residual remains in the container.

  • In 2013 Fina was awarded First place in the Graphic Arts Awards held in Valencia, both involve the rotogravure and the flexography categories, this being the first year of our participation in this flexography award.
