8.2 m BOPP line for Brazilian film producer

Customer attests Brückner “the most advanced technology in the world”


Polo Indústria e Comércio, Brazil, one of the leading film producers in Latin America, invested in their second film stretching line from Brückner. The 8.2 m high-speed line (production speed 450 m/min) features numerous technical highlights and innovations.


At the ground-breaking ceremony, Henri Slezynger, president of Polo`s parent company Grupo Unigel, explained the reasons behind their decision in favour of Brückner: “Our new line is not only larger and faster, it will also produce 5-layer films with the most advanced technology in the world, thus ensuring an optimum life time for goods packed in our new first grade film”.


Brückner shall not only supply the new line, but is also the general contractor for the whole project and periphery equipment, such as for metallizing and recycling.


This investment in film production ensures Polo:


an increase in their annual production capacity from the present 30.000 tons per year up to 60.000 tons per year in 2005

an expansion of their export quota from 30 to 40%

an increasing benefit from the growing Latin American BOPP film market
