First shrink film line for Renolit: Successful retrofitting from PP to MOPVC

Renolit Hispania, S.A., part of Renolit AG, expanded its product portfolio with Transverse Direction Oriented (TDO) PVC and PS shrink film. In addition to several PVC calender and extruder lines at its plant in Estella and elsewhere, Renolit Hispania relocated and modified a former BOPP-line.

 

Mr. Dieter Maurer, project leader for Renolit Hispania: “In the past, we have produced non-stretched PVC at our plant in Spain. However, producing TDO-PVC and PS opens attractive opportunities for us. After we have found a used BOPP line, which could be modified, we decided to enter this territory of film production.”

 

Following a line inspection by Brückner Servtec, the BOPP line has been relocated to Spain and transformed to a TDO film production line. Within the project, Brückner Servtec was in charge of a package of upgrades to convert the former BOPP line to a MOPVC line:

“Shrink film offers our customers new application possibilities,” so Mr. Maurer. “Consequently, this step helps us to meet future market demands. For this challenging task, we have chosen Brückner Servtec as partner since they have an outstanding experience and know-how in line relocation and upgrading.”
