Another Gneuss MRS Extrusion System with FDA letter of no objection successfully operating in Peruvian Sheet Line
Sinea, a company of the Spanish group IF with a presence in Latin America since 1951, is a multinational manufacturer of plastic packaging with sites in Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Peru, and a strong presence in the manufacturing of caps for soft drinks and polypropylene woven sacks for various industrial applications.
Moreover, in 2008, Sinea entered the recycling sector, handling the entire recycling chain, from the collection of more than14,000 tons of post-consumer bottles annually, to manufacturing flakes, sheet and thermoformed containers.
As part of the development in the recycling business, Sinea acquired an additional machine for the production of PET sheet, with MRS extrusion technology from German company Gneuss. Sinea decided to acquire this particular technology because it allows the processing of mixed reclaim material from the washing line directly into a uniform sheet, without restrictions and with an FDA letter of no objection so that the sheet can be used for food packaging.
