Trioplastics launch new PVC and PET film machines

Trioplastics Official Launch of New Machinery


The BIG day has finally arrived for Trioplastics when they embark new beginnings on Thursday 31 October 2013 with the official launch of their new machinery.

Trioplastics specialises in the supply of quality rigid plastic films and sheets used in Thermo forming and Pharma and Food grade packaging. They will become known as a world-class local manufacturer of, not only, the “Calendered process” PVC rigid materials when they celebrate the arrival of the new and only Calendered process PVC machinery, but also, the PET machine that can produce PET up to 1.5m wide, in South Africa. The company will now be in a position to manage and produce various grades of PVC and PET films and it will be able to service the packaging industry by providing the rigid films used in thermoforming, blister packs, stationery and additional applications.

The new PVC machine will be able to produce stable Rigid PVC films that are less likely to degrade and the process will create a superior product because the Calendered machine has loftier rollers. The Calendering process results in a higher quality PVC product, it’s cost effect, stable, can be used for laminations, and it creates a high gloss. PVC films that have been extruded can have up to a 20% rejection rate when utilised by clients. The Calender process reduces that rejection rate to 1% and therefore minimizes waste. In addition, the new PET machine will allow Trioplastics to produce films up to 1.5m in width. PET films have excellent vacuum forming ability and the material is impact and chemical resistant. PET films are standard for toys, tools and other merchandise.

The ability to manufacture locally will mean that Trioplastics will be able to produce a high quality product at a competitive price but it will also massively decrease the lead-time of the product enabling Trioplasticsto position themselves as an industry leader.

Their slogan of Quality, Price and Service will become a promise to live by every single moment for the Trioplastics family.
