Revolutionary hot-embossing technology is used to create the CompresSeal film that has a higher seal integrity than standard polyethylene and weighs up to 30% less, while still having the same thickness as standard packaging. In addition, it ensures not only tighter packs, but also constant processing on packaging lines in winter and summer.
