Co-extruded, shrinkable polystyrene foam used as facestock for food and beverage labels providing insulating (hot and cold) properties, cushioning for glass bottles and tamper evident applications.

Co-extruded Polystyrene Foam

Co-extruded, shrinkable polystyrene foam used as facestock for food and beverage labels providing insulating (hot and cold) properties, cushioning for glass bottles and tamper evident applications.

Plasti-Shield® Insulating Labels are a proprietary co-extruded, shrinkable polystyrene foam which provide insulation for food and beverage containers that require hot or cold content and cushioning for glass bottles. The main attributes of Plasti-Shield® can be summarised as follows:

  • Unique thermal properties and superior shrinkage compared to Shrinkage of OPP –ROSO labels.
  • Insulating properties for microwave ready to eat products. Protects fingers from burning and helps food retain heat.
  • The same insulating properties keep beer kegs, cans and bottles colder for longer when removed from the fridge.
  • Major reduction of noise and breakages when used for non returnable bottles (NRB).
  • Additional protection to glass bottles enables the use of lighter more economical non returnable bottles (NRB).
  • Offers protection to glass bottles during transportation, eliminating the need for cardboard dividers.
  • Increased shrinkage offers excellent promotional opportunities.

We also offer a grade of co-extruded polystyrene foam for use as face-stock in the manufacture of tamper evident labelling. The benefits of this grade can be summarised as follows:

  • Conversion into shaped labels.
  • Will break at any attempt at removal.
  • Renders it impossible to reseal once broken.
  • Excellent printability – UV letterpress, flexographic printing or offset

We supply the Plasti-Shield® and tamper evident co-extruded polystyrene grades on jumbo rolls to end users who will then print and convert for labelling and tamper evident applications. Roll size and weight will depend on your requirements and our flexibility means that you will be satisfied with the options that we can offer. Whilst we do not provide printed labels ourselves, we do work with a select number of partner printers with whom we will put you in contact on receipt of your enquiries.

Polystyrene hair highlighting strips have a beautiful aesthetic appearance that cannot be matched by aluminium.

Hair Products

Polystyrene hair highlighting strips have a beautiful aesthetic appearance that cannot be matched by aluminium.

At Avifilm we are always looking for new applications for our extruded mono layer polystyrene foam so it was with great excitement that we entered into the field of hair highlighting foam wraps in the late 1990s. This product was developed as an environmentally friendly alternative to aluminium foil and instantly proved to be very popular with hair colourists around the world. The product goes by many different names – foam wraps, foam meche, high light strips, thermal highlighting strips and foam sheets to name a few. 

As contract manufacturers we will provide you with a finished packed product, to your specifications and packaging requirements. Colours vary for different requirements but white and gold have been the most popular in this application. Packaging is normally in boxes of 200, but again we are very flexible – you will find that working with us is easy and you always get what you want.

What we do

Avifilm Export Corporation is Europe's leading manufacturer of mono layer and co extruded polystyrene foam and this experience enables us to provide total assurance to our clients that we will provide what they want.

Whether it is the anti-slip affect for the tray mat, the thermal properties of the hair wrap, the printability of the insulative labels or the tamper evident quality of the facestock, we can assure our clients that our experience and knowledge base will enable us to provide a solution for any requests in our field.

Plasti-Shield® and Co-Extruded Polystyrene Foam

In 2013 Avifilm Export Corporation bought the extrusion plant and client base of GERRO PLAST GMBH LABELS, incorporating Plasti-Shield® amongst other grades of co-extruded polystyrene foam. Our Plasti-Shield® and co extruded polystyrene foam is supplied on the roll in varying sizes, depending on the requirements of the end users. We have minimum and maximum roll diameter and width which is our only constraining factor, otherwise we pride ourselves on our flexibility to provide what the client wants. Our co extruded polystyrene foam is only available in white as in all cases it is printed upon.

Our monolayer polystyrene foam can be supplied as printed, unprinted, cut to various sizes in square or round corners or on the roll and in a vast selection of colours. The two main applications for this monolayer roll are inflight food tray mats and hair highlighting wraps. If you have any other end application requests please let us know and we will be happy to investigate the possibilities together.
