In fully recognizing the current uncertainties of requirements around the re- cycled PE material for end-markets, the EVOH barrier film incorporates the compatibilizing additive to neu- tralize any potential negatives to the recycling stream. Uflex Limited won a Gold Award — Shelf Impact for its 4D Bags with Handle. Uflex developed a brick shaped, all panel registered bag/pouch with a handle and re-closable option that can either stand-up or lie down. The standability and shelf prominence of rigid packaging are now combined with the functionality of flexible packaging in this new ‘4D Pack.’

The gold metallic lines were provided with a holographic layer thus eliminating the use of a foil stamping process. Amcor Healthcare Packaging was awarded a Gold Award — Technical Innovation for Insura Seal Ver- ification. A package closure indicator that functions with conventional packaging materials and equipment at typical filling speeds was developed that generates a color change when critical seal parameters, namely temperature, pressure (intimacy of contact), and time, are achieved.Color continuity indicates a lack of defects while color intensity correlates well with seal strength. Uflex Limited won a Gold Award — Shelf Impact for its 4D Bags with Handle.
