Integrated Packaging Films (IPF) Inc., a film and sheet converter located in Ayr, ON, has expanded upstream and begun extruding sheet. The company purchased a Milacron sheet extrusion line, and plans to produce polypropylene, PET-G, APET and RPET sheet and roll stock.
"In addition to general purpose markets, we’re hoping to get into medical and food applications," says Bill Mechar, president and owner of IPF.
The new sheet products are available in thicknesses of 0.015 in. to 0.060 in. In addition, IPF continues to produce anti-static, electro-static discharge (ESD) and conductive materials, which are mostly destined for thermoformed electronics packaging.
In conjunction with the expansion, IPF has moved from Cambridge, ON to a facility in Ayr, ON. The company’s address is 15 Waydom Dr., Ayr, ON, N0B 1E0.
