Recognised by Münster University as a top innovator in the packaging industry, EMPAC delivers tailor-made solutions for a wide variety of requirements and consistently meets the highest quality standards. Their products have been adopted by three industry sectors with very exacting requirements;
Chemicals – Film inliners from EMPAC are manufactured taking into account defined barrier and film properties as well as individual requirements. High-barrier films made from various polymer combinations are used to protect problematic products from corrosion, oxidation, microbiological deterioration and light.
Pharmaceuticals – Customers from the pharmaceutical industry rely on EMPAC containers for packaging pharmaceutical raw materials through to finished APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients). Pharma Big Bags from EMPAC are available with PE films and aluminium composite films using special pharmaceutically approved raw materials.
Food – For longer storage and transportation times. The primary packaging is subjected to organoleptic and microbiological tests in order to avoid impairment of the contents. A filter is welded into a special barrier film on the big bags then after the product has been filled in, the film filler neck is welded by the user. The oxygen present is then withdrawn via the filter and an inert gas such as nitrogen is superimposed on the product.
Static sensitive – Thanks to a new laser process, foils for packaging can be processed in such a way that they become conductive. With conventional foils, the material can easily become electrostatically charged when it is filled or emptied due to friction against each other. In the worst case, dust in the air can lead to dust explosions.
To prevent this, EMPAC developed a simple, effective and inexpensive method for processing foils in cooperation with the Münster University of Applied Sciences. A big bag film made of several layers is partially exposed up to its integrated aluminium layer. The charges are discharged via the conductive aluminium layer and the risk of explosion is reduced.
It is clear that manufacturing products of this quality for use by such advanced industries requires a pristine environment however the floor was becoming a problem. The industrial screed was cracking and creating dust which was completely unacceptable as any contamination of Empac’s products would be disastrous.
Herr Bytomski immediately took action and decided Ecotile interlocking floor tiles were the perfect solution.
“We installed 570m2 of E500/7 in graphite and blue in the factory and warehouse. We were extremely impressed by the quality and found the installation process quick and easy. It was a big advantage that we did not need to close production while we laid the floor and no chemicals were involved which could be absorbed by our products. We had no reservations about buying from a British company and plan to continue the floor next year – Ecotile have been a pleasure to work with”!
