Carded packaging which includes such processes as skin and blister
packaging, clamshell packaging and Stretch Pak is a cost-effective way
to offer a high level of security, visibility and marketability to small
consumer & industrial products.
Skin Packaging refers to the process of applying plastic film to affix
product to substrate of paperboard or corrugated sheet through the use
of heat and vacuum. Blister packaging involves applying pre-formed
rigid plastic film to affix product to a paperboard substrate or to
encapsulate product in a clamshell style unit. Stretch Pak allows the
product to be viewed in a 360-degree visibility format while being held
securely in place with crystal clear DuPont Surlyn flexible film.
Whether you need tamper-resistant packaging such as clamshells, blister
packs, inserts and trays, printed cards or other types of custom
thermoformed packaging, Associated Packaging can solve your most
complicated carded packaging needs by offering you a variety of
machinery, standard and custom packaging styles and materials, as well

DUPONT SURLYN FILM
is extremely versatile because one piece of plastic can be
drawn down around almost any shape, size or weight product.
The plastic protects the product and the card backing from
wear and tear. And since the product is immobilized, it
cannot shift and multi-component products will not lose any
of its pieces.
The film is one of the most important components of the skin
packaging process. It is the film that holds the product on
the board. The film also reinforces the board and provides a
glossy surface for enhancing graphics.
Dupont Surlyn film is the film of choice in approximately
90% of the carded display skin packaging business in North
America because of its clarity, high gloss, puncture
resistance, versatility, adhesion and shorter cycle time.
