Markets We Serve
Sonoco manufactures rigid rollstock ranging from 11 mil to 55 mil. We produce:
- mono layer sheet
Our rigid rollstock is used by many food processors in form fill and seal application and by thermoformers to make packaging for fresh foods, shelf stable products and electronics, as well as industrial products.
We have multiple extrusion lines capable of producing one- to five-layer structures. In-line laminating capability is available, along with off-line laminating. We work with our customers to develop custom formulations for specific applications, and we offer in-line and off-line slitting is available. We offer test extruders and sample formers to validate material performance.
We manufacture both virgin and recycled polyester. The recycled polyester is derived from post-consumer recycled water and soda bottles, as well as from controlled post-industrial scrap.
Polylactic Acid (PLA)
PLA is derived from renewable resources. In North America, it comes from corn. In other areas of the world it may come from other plant forms such as sugar cane.
The newest product line is PETLite™, Clear Lam’s mechanically foamed PET, intended to replace HIPS, styrofoam, and other rigid packaging materials. (link to PETLite page)
