The flexible packaging industry is one of the oldest and most established applications for PTFE coated fabrics and tapes. AFC's products are excellent for use in Plastic Bag Manufacturing, Form Fill and Seal Machines, Side Sealers, Shrink Wrap Tunnels, and Impulse/L-Bar Sealers. We have engineered our products for trouble-free performance to minimize downtime and increase productivity.
We work with leading packaging companies that are frustrated with excessive downtime caused by the need to replace tapes and fabrics, and companies that are tired of belting inconsistencies.
