Typical film applications

The right film for every application

Be it freezer bags, refuse sack or sausage packaging: Every different end use means different set of specific requirements from the film material and thus also from the blown film production. High barrier, stiffness, tear strength, transparency or breathability have to be defined very specifically based on the corresponding application.

One thing that all of these different blown films have in common is: They are manufactured on the Hosokawa Alpine blown film lines. From basic refuse bags to complex TPU films – everything is covered by the blown film line designed by us to exactly match your intended use. This is how we develop solutions for grocery packaging, medicines or for the hygiene industry.

Also for innovative material compositions such as Mono material solutions, biogranulate or water-soluble synthetic materials, we are the right partner. Get in touch!


Bio film

Thanks to the low melting point and low rate of shear, the HX Select high-performance extruder is ideally suitable for processing bio plastics.


High barrier film

The blown film lines from Hosokawa Alpine offer maximum flexibility for the manufacture of high-barrier film with effective oxygen and aroma barriers.




The film orientation line MDO (machine direction orientation) from Hosokawa Alpine makes possible the production of breathable blown film with high water vapour permeability.
