Among the most innovative solutions the Company presents Tack+, a printed tape with high adhesiveness, and Food Contact Tape, suitable for the contact with all kinds of foods.


Florence (IT), May 2nd  2018 – From 8th to 11th May,  Irplast, celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, participates again in Hispack Barcelona (GRAN VIA, Hall 2 – Stand 685), the European Packaging Fair, where it will exhibit its whole range of BOPP films, printed adhesive tapes and roll-fed labels. Recent investments in new rotogravure and flexo printing machines allow the Company today to serve major multinationals offering a very high quality standard in a particularly reliable delivery time, with complete back up coverage. The Company’s development plan, with the increase of production capacity, the new tailor-made products in BOPP, the new energy cogeneration plants and the recycling of raw materials at the extrusion level, have assured Irplast a “green” and “high-tech” positioning internationally.

For its carton sealing range the Company presents the brand new TAMPER EVIDENT BOPP adhesive tape, with customizable anti-tamper print, available in 7 colours. The bi-oriented polypropylene support film is produced in Italy by Irplast, a further guarantee of continuity in the supply and of the constant technical specifications. Among top solutions Irplast presents:  Tack +, with a 20% higher adhesion compared to the standard, to adhere to any type of cardboard, and Food Contact Tape, an adhesive tape working also as a label, suitable for contact with all kinds of food. It also conveys brand image right to the moment of food consumption thus becoming an effective branding tool and it enables grouping together more products. Printed and customizable by Irplast itself, it is made of polypropylene film and, much important, BRC certified.

Irplast’s Labelling showcase offers in the foreground  “Label Tape Shrink”, BOPP heat shrinkable pre-glued roll fed labels, ideal for non-high-margin containers. Multipack “Take Away”, for multipack packages, to bundle up to 6 units at a time. It is a valuable solution to group and sell together more product units, while maintaining brand integrity. With “Take Away” Irplast has been successfully performing on the Spanish multi-pack packaging market since 18 years, particularly in the beverage sector. The BOPP film Business Unit presents ENV, the first S-BOPP window for letter envelopes developed with a production process that cannot be replicated with any other technologies, employing an extrusion line unique in the world (LISIM-Brückner), that guarantees reduced film thickness, lower costs and application performance equal to those of polystyrene.



Irplast is one of the world’s leading manufacturer of simultaneous bi-oriented polypropylene film, vertically integrated from film extrusion to printing processes, and one of Europe’s leading players in the production and printing of BOPP shrinkable pre-glued roll-fed labels and printed adhesive tapes. With its headquarters in Italy, in Empoli (FI),  Irplast works successfully on the International market even with solutions for multi-packaging and shrink sleeves. The company – which has been BRC certified in 2016 – has a consolidated experience in complex international projects and includes a team of technicians specialized in on-site design, implementation and ongoing support. Irplast avails itself of over 360 employees, working in its 3 fully automated production sites: one based in Empoli (Florence), specialized in printing labels and adhesive tapes, with a production capacity of over 350 million square meters, and two in Atessa (Chieti) with an overall production capacity of 50,000 tons of BOPP film/year. The  turnover in 2016 reached 91 million Euros, more than half of which generated by the BOPP Film Business Unit focused on the production of BOPP film specialty and the remaining divisions LABEL TECH (roll-fed labels and multipack solutions) and PRINT TAPE (adhesive tapes). 77% of the production is allocated to the international market.
