COEXPAN has entered into a partnership agreement with NatureWorks LLC, a biopolymers supplier and founder of Ingeo™ PLA bioplastic, and with the AMUT Group, an Italian manufacturer of extrusion and thermoforming lines.

Together they will be running live thermoforming demos of COEXPAN PLA sheets during both Chinaplas and K-show international exhibitions. 

COEXPAN’S innovative product range of PLA rigid sheets for thermoforming is called CoexBioR, which the company says has demonstrated outstanding performance in processing and packaging applications. The comprehensive range of medium and high-barrier solutions in PLA is primarily intended for dairy desserts, coffee or tea capsules, and fresh food trays among others.

COEXPAN’s PLA sheets have exceptional barrier properties that reduce oxygen, grease and water vapour transmissions, preserving the flavour and aroma of foods for longer. These characteristics make PLA rigid sheets suitable for packing applications that require extra barrier protection, such as coffee and tea capsules or fresh food trays. 

PLA sheets are also outstanding for their high degree of transparency and glossy, with high tear strength and excellent strength and formability properties compared to other thermoplastic materials. In addition to PLA, COEXPAN has extensive expertise in developing rigid foils in different thermoplastic materials, such as PET, PP and PS, both for Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) and thermoforming machines, with medium and high-barrier properties, providing the best packaging solutions that ensure product efficiency and food preservation properties.

COEXPAN, Grupo Lantero’s division specializing in the manufacture of rigid sheets and thermoformed products, will be participating in Chinaplas 2019 international exhibition, taking place in Guangzhou from 21st to 24th May, where it will be showcasing its new range of rigid plastic foils made of Ingeo™ polylactic acid (PLA). 

During Chinaplas, held in Guangzhou from the 21st to 24th May, COEXPAN will be showcasing its PLA rigid sheets in live demos jointly with Natureworks and AMUT. Find out more in  HALL 4.1 - STAND C55.
