Supplier News

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be conducting the new flexible packaging and bioplastics training course in New Zealand on 11 April.
To be presented by Richard Smith MAIP, the half-day Introduction to Flexible Packaging & Bioplastics training course will be held in conjunction with PAC.NZ at the BNZ Highbrook Partner Centre, Auckland.
Course overview

A complex and dynamic area of packaging, flexible packaging utilises a wide variety of materials and a broad range of processes for manufacturing and producing films and laminates of different properties and for different applications. Renewable based materials are also emerging with properties and end of life opportunities, quite different from traditional polymers and films.
Course objectives 

  • Polymers used in flexible packaging
  • Flexible packaging manufacturing processes
  • Films and their properties
  • Market applications for flexible packaging – structures, properties and pack formats
  • Emerging materials for flexible packaging
  • Compostable and degradable flexible films
  • Sustainable packaging – opportunities for flexible packaging
The course aims to give attendees an introduction to flexibles, an ability to understand flexible film applications and to more confidently define or select flexible packaging. Attendees will also gain an understanding of new emerging polymers and their potential application in flexible packaging. The course will additionally aim to deliver to attendees, a precise understanding of compostable and degradable films and how to consider packaging options in terms of responsible and sustainable packaging.

Who should attend?

Packaging technologists, packaging designers and those in a role that might specify flexible packaging will all benefit from the course.
