Downgauging Plastic Film
What is downgauging? To downgauge a film means to make the film thinner, and buyers and sellers like it because they can go green in two ways:
- Go Green Environmentally
- Go Green Financially
Environmentally, less material is used in the process, and this can help a lot of companies meet their goals to reduce the amount of packaging material they use.
From the other side of the equation, downgauging 5% leads to a 5% reduction in material cost. This can be millions of dollars in polymer savings for a large producer.
