Blown Extrusion

The primary purpose of a substrate whether it is paper, polyethylene or polypropylene is to provide attractive and practical packaging solutions suitable to run on various types of wrapping machines. At Skymark we possess an intimate knowledge of the specifications and performance characteristics of the majority of wrapping machines and the substrates that run on them. We have achieved this by collaborating with manufacturers of automatic wrapping machinery such as Sitma, Wrapmatic, Cassoli, Hayssen and Joisten & Kettenbaum. We are regularly involved in the design of sealing and forming sections of new plant and equipment.

Our Ilkeston facility produces all the multilayer blown film requirements for the business and is capable of producing films up to a width of 2.6 metres.   We continue to develop and maintain close relationships with our polymer suppliers and joint development programmes have resulted in the manufacture of various innovative products that ensure we meet our customers’ needs.

Substantial investment in both cooling ring and die technology coupled with fully computerized IBC high output co-extruders, has further enhanced the quality of our films.  Each stage in the manufacture of our products is monitored, controlled, assessed and recorded to ensure the same consistent high quality.
