There are many uses for reinforcement within the packaging industry. From scrim reinforcement of envelopes, to scrim reinforcement of sacks and use of scrims laminated, to tissue as a wrapping solution there are opportunities to improve the performance of packaging textiles.
Both orthogonal and triaxial scrims are used to reinforce envelopes. Scrims are also used to reinforce paper sacks through lamination, using in line extrusion to increase the tear strength whilst reducing weight and cost.
Scrim reinforcement is used in tapes to ensure that the tape does not tear easily in use. A lightweight open construction scrim is provided which is embedded in the adhesive layer to give tear resistance and increased tensile strength to the tape. The adhesive bonds both through the interstices (holes in the scrim) and to the scrim itself to give a strong and robust construction.
