Logo Klöckner Pentaplast GmbH & Co.KG

Klöckner Pentaplast as a manufacturer of packaging films for pharmaceutical and food packaging represents over 500 000 tons of PVC rigid films, PET, PA and other materials after calendering or extrusion.
For several years, Pentaplast employs the use of nanoparticles in the formulation or as a coating for the achievement of surface effects. This special coating methods have been developed that allow flexible thin films applied to surfaces. This can be done by spraying, dye felt coating or by aerosol corona surface treatment.
Many properties are desired, but only on the surface of a polymer film, because they only work there either should or can be taken for reasons of cost-effective to use. Here we differentiate between active surfaces that protect the packaged product and extend shelf-life, in intelligent interfaces that provide information about the condition of the packaging material and special features, such as better or worse printability and scratch resistance.
Klöckner Pentaplast operates at its plant in St. Petersburg a common "center of polymer films" with the St. Petersburg Technological Institute, where scientific knowledge of nanotechnology laboratory and production equipment to be connected to film production and produced first applicable films with special properties based on nanotechnology.
