Sabic, Jinming and Bolsas officials at a signing ceremony

Sabic has teamed up with Guangdong Jinming Machinery, a plastic packaging equipment maker, and Bolsas de los Altos, a plastic film and packaging converter to support polyolefin based innovative applications in flexible packaging.

Engagement with value chain players remains critical to Sabic’s vision of bringing market driven innovation to customers. By exchanging mutual expertise on polymer technology and processing, this collaboration will secure the development of a robust applications pipeline based on current and future market trends, Sabic said in a statement.

Sustainability trends continue to transform the flexible packaging industry. As a result, incumbent film structures need to be updated to conform to latest circularity needs. A partnership involving Sabic’s deep materials knowledge, Jinming’s equipment manufacturing excellence and Bolsas’ converting capabilities can address these challenges.

The collaboration will provide an outlet to test and validate performance of Sabic polyolefin resin products including polyethylene resin offerings from Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV) and from Trucircle, Sabic’s commitment to circularity for plastics. The collaborative efforts will feature installation of Jinming’s multilayer coextrusion machinery at Bolsas’ Mexico facility.
