A Leader in Custom Converting
We offer one of the broadest sets of vertically integrated converting capabilities in the industry, including:
Package Degassing System
Reliable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly one-way degassing valves and vents for a wide range of product packaging applications including coffee, pet food, vitamins, fruits and vegetables, products with yeast, and other products requiring head space gas evacuation from sealed packaging. PLI-VALV® one-way degassing valves enable head-space gases from inside of sealed packaging to escape while providing an effective barrier to environmental oxygen, moisture, and contamination keeping products fresh.
Custom Film Extrusion
PLITEK® specializes in extruding custom films in an ISO Class 8 clean room. We have the ability to extrude smaller startup quantities supporting our customers from a design and development phase, through high volume production and commercialization. Custom films can be provided in roll form, sheet form, or as precision die cut components tailored to meet specific application requirements.
As part of our continual vertical integration, we are in the process of adding new extruding capabilities: co-extrusion and polypropylene meltblown filter media extrusion.
Hang Tabs & Display Strips
High-quality hang tabs and display strips display products at eye-level that help increase sales. We stock a wide variety of PLI-TAB® hang tabs, wobblers and vertical display strips.
