Koex is an extensible (stretch) PVC-based film particularly suitable for the packaging of fresh food products, such as fruit and vegetables, meat, cheese, dairy products, gastronomy and more, in automatic or manual mode, with or without tray.

PVC is the most broadly used material worldwide in the packaging of fresh food, thanks to its ease of use, the optimal value for money and excellent mechanical properties, which ensure excellent resistance to manipulation. In its two specific formulations, moreover, the Koex film of Fabbri Group preserves and enhances the characteristics of the food through the optical properties of brilliance and high transparency, the excellent antifog effect and, above all, the excellent breathable properties.

Hence, It protects food in the most respectful way possible, guaranteeing the natural shelf-life of the product and keeping intact all its organoleptic and nutritional characteristics. The high ironing performance of Koex also allows to minimize the amount of product used to produce the package, thus ensuring, in addition to economic savings, also a reduced environmental impact. This aspect is further improved when Koex is used in synergy with Fabbri wrapping machines.

Available in different bands and thicknesses, Koex allows the customer to choose the optimal tool to package his product, ensuring a refined appearance to the packaging, intended for the main distribution and merchandising channels on the market and, finally, to the final consumer. Koex is a four-colour printing film with up to 10 colours, allowing the customer to personalize and enhance their product, through different communication and branding options on the packaging.

In this way the film becomes a promotional tool that captivates the attention of the consumer making the packaging more visible and graphically attractive. The Designers of Gruppo Fabbri are available to identify and develop, in synergy with the customer, the most suitable design to enhance the packaged food and support its sales.

Koex characteristics

Maximum elasticity

This feature of Koex allows to keep the film tight around the product, preventing the latter to slide along the tray especially during transport. Thanks to its memory effect, with Koex the packages produced maintain their excellent presentation for a long time, even after several manipulations.

Tear strength

Koex guarantees tear resistance even with irregular, pointed or edged products, thus ensuring the integrity and aesthetics of the packaging and preventing any contamination from the outside.

Transpiration and anti-fog

Thanks to the permeability and the innovative formulation of the material, Koex is a highly breathable film, which allows the best preservation of the packaged product. Even its excellent anti fog effect allows to counteract the condensation present in products rich in moisture and to keep intact the aesthetics of the package.

Transparency and luster

With Koex the visibility of the product is immediate and optimal: the appearance and presentation of the food are enhanced by its optical characteristics of brilliance and transparency.

Perfect thickness and quality characteristics

The characteristics of Koex production process, a double layer film, by means of fully automated lines, allow to obtain a regular production and a constant thickness of the film, which then guarantee extremely high performance by the film on stretch packaging lines at high speed.

Perfect machinability

Thanks to Fabbri Group’s historical experience in the production of both packaging machines and food films, the ideal combination of Koex is on Fabbri automatic stretch machines, particularly suitable for backstore supermarkets and industrial lines of food processors.Koex achieves optimal results even on all the most common packaging machines on the market.

Food contact

KOEX is approved for food contact in accordance with current legislation.

Wide range of solutions

Koex is available in different formulations and thicknesses depending on the products for which it is intended. This allows Fabbri Group to propose the best packaging solution for each product.

Four-colour flexographic print and dedicated graphic line

Koex can be printed using the four-colour flexographic printing process with up to 10 colours using digital plates. For each type of product our designers are able to design a graphic line with the purpose of enhancing the image of the packaged food, developing, creating and regularly renewing the required graphic layouts. The use of colour graphics and special images allows to obtain a more specific identification of the product and its distributor or producer, differentiating the products from each other and thus facilitating the choice of the consumer.
