At age 96, Roy Weikert is still attracted to plastic film. The founder of General Films Inc. in Covington, Ohio, and his nephew Tim, have developed new films for downgauging applications, for higher barrier, better performance and better sealants. They've added thermoforming films to our barrier line and done a lot of work with peel seals General Films makes coextruded films of three-, five- and nine-layer thicknesses for various applications of polyethylene, nylon and ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymers. It also manufactures bag-in-box systems and modified-atmosphere packaging for food and dairy applications, as well as converter films, custom bags and industrial packaging such as box and barrel liners, pallet covers and shrink-bundling films.
