Berry: Uniting its High-Performance Lamination Films

Berry Global is uniting its global range of high-performance polyethylene (PE) lamination films under its Entour™ film brand, bringing together the company's wider portfolio. The move involves renaming the company's European ‘FormiForLAM’ product to Entour™ films. This not only simplifies the product line-up but also ensures that customers receive a consistent experience when choosing from Berry’s wide range of lamination films.

Entour™ films are part of Berry’s B Circular product range and provide customers with a single source solution for a variety of converter and food films that meet precise application requirements while supporting the move to a circular economy.

Entour™ lamination films are ideal for bags, pouches, stand-up pouches, and flow wraps in markets including foods, wipes, and pet foods. All deliver a number of important benefits such as high levels of product protection, consumer convenience, and point-of-sale impact combined with the ability to be recycled when used in combination with other PE structures. This offers an alternative to traditional multi-material PET/PE and OPET/PE laminated films.

The flexibility of the Entour™ films means that their strength and stiffness can be tailored to each application while maintaining stability on store shelves. For enhanced branding and on-shelf appeal, there is a choice of decoration options, including high-quality flexographic and rotogravure print. Clarity and gloss can also be customised to precise brand requirements.

To maximise consumer convenience, the films are zipper-compatible and can incorporate a linear MD (machine direction) tear for easy open pouches.
