MuCell: 40% Weight Savings
The work of MuCell Extrusion LLC, Woburn, MA/USA, with Nordenia Technologies GmbH (now part of the Mondi Group) to apply the MuCell process to Nordenia’s new NorCell thin-blown film packaging was recognized with Nordenia receiving an award from the German Packaging Institute.
In this application, MuCell technology allowed the weight of NorCell flexible packaging to be reduced without any change to the thickness and overall stiffness of the compound. NorCell ’lightweight foils’ weigh up to 40% less than traditional foils, and that’s the kind of impact MuCell technology can bring to highly competitive and innovative markets like flexible packaging.
