Our Company dedicates the EL-ZIP® press to close zippers to users of horizontal and vertical packaging machines as well as pouch making lines that want to improve the quality and performance of their packaging in a simple and effective manner.

We have mastered the art of manufacturing EL-ZIP® zipper closures from 3mm to 50mm wide, made of both polyethylene and propylene, compatible with films with sealing layers of PE, CPP and OPP and BOPP.

Due to our technical capabilities Elplast is able to co-extrude several layers, e.g. a layer improving sealing properties, a barrier layer, a guarantee layer, a colour layer, etc.

Based on our knowledge and long-term experience Elplast can create zipper closures that are perfectly harmonized with a product package, enhancing its value.
