The launch of Monflex is part of Saica’s continuous commitment to innovation. Monoflex, improves packaging transparency and brightness which allows the consumer to have a greater visibility in the purchase of sliced products, and single dose oils and vinegars whilst still retaining all the functionality of existing solutions. 

This new cover design has been developed by the research and development team of Saica Flex, which has achieved a product created only from PET (polyethylene terephthalate) which maintains and even improves the functional and barrier properties of the current packaging.

Saica Monoflex is a commitment to Circular Economy, an innovative product, which is also 100% recyclable. This new product contributes to the improvement of the reputation and the brand image of the client as it combines with guidelines discussed in the EU and COP 21 and contributes to the saving of natural resources due to their total recyclability. Also, in the heat sealing, a reduction of the temperature is produced contributing to a lower energy expenditure.


The product consists of a cover based on PET, with or without high barrier depending on the requirements of the client, weldable to APET trays. Tests carried out in the heat-sealing facilities of the manufacturer of the trays Klöckner Pentaplast KP, European leader in this sector, have proved the tray sealing and the water tightness required for the preservation of the product.

The Saica Monoflex cover is manufactured and distributed with up to a 46% reduction in its thickness which generates large efficiencies in transport and storage since the new coil has more meters of product maintaining the same weight and volume. In addition, the productive efficiency in the packaging lines reduces the changes, decreases the losses and increases product yield.

Saica Flex Product and Application Development Manager, Ricardo Cañavate, said: “This allows us to do more with less. Without a doubt, we have launched a unique product that offers environmental benefits that enhance the positioning and reputation of our customers.”
