Specialty films manufacturer honored by expert panel in the category “Converting Solutions for New Materials”
March 21st, 2017
A strong start into 2017 for Infiana: the business was honored in the opening hours of the International Converting Exhibition Europe (ICE) for its antistatic film products.
Innovative Abilities Demonstrated
The organizers of Europe’s most important trade show for the conversion and processing of paper, films, and nonwovens presented ICE Awards to four companies in total. An expert jury of exhibitors and visitors recognized Infiana’s extraordinary achievements in the “Converting Solutions for New Materials” category. A total of 39 companies had submitted their products and services for consideration. ”We are very pleased to be receiving this ICE Award. It is a confirmation of our hard work, and – by virtue of the fact that it was voted on by converting industry insiders – shows that even other market players acknowledge and acclaim our competencies and accomplishments,” celebrated Peter K. Wahsner, CEO of Infiana.
A Convincing Case for Antistatic Film
With its antistatic solution, Infiana can prevent electric discharges from occurring when a roll of film is unwound. The release films are typically siliconized on one or both sides, and will function even at environmental humidity levels of 50 percent or lower – and that permanently. Unexpected discharges during processing or potentially dangerous shocks on contact with a film roll are thus a thing of the past. Infiana’s antistatically equipped release liners are available as LDPE and PP films. “Infiana’s release liners with permanent antistatic equipment offer clear advantages in terms of product quality, and reduce potential dangers when handling web-shaped materials,” notes Dr. Jürgen Panhans, Senior Application Manager PSM.
Numerous Recent Honors
The ICE Award is just one of several awards Infiana’s innovations have recently garnered. The company was previously honored by Germany’s WirtschaftsWoche magazine as well as at the TOP 100 and Marcum Innovator Awards.
