Flexible Paper And Plastics

Due to their versatility, light weight and ease of processing, flexible paper and plastic packaging is ideal for numerous applications such as sachets, pouches, bags, plastic tubes and secondary packaging. These protect the filling good from external influences, facilitate both transport and storage and enable high-quality product presentation. ACTEGA is well versed in food-related legislation and has considerable expertise in pigmented product solutions.

Alu Foil

Aluminum foil offers excellent barrier properties and high flexibility. These properties make the substrate irreplaceable in flexible packaging applications such as beverage portion packs, food or pet food trays, lids, wrappers, liners and blister packs. Our portfolio includes a wide range of coatings and adhesives in custom colors, also for the direct contact with foodstuffs.


Labels fulfil numerous functions in the packaging market. Whether as decoration, information carrier or means of communication, products can be adapted to individual applications, bonding times, material and printing processes. Our solutions convince with the highest quality - from the color to value-added finishing.

Our solutions ensure the protection of filling goods, enhance packaging appearance and enable additional functionalities for the flexible packaging of tomorrow.
