Laser perforation is increasingly used on foils for packaging (coffee- sticks, honey) for the purpose of easy opening of products (easy open).

  • Laser perforation is appropriate because no help is required when opening a product (customer friendly opening)
  • The line of laser perforation is visible and can be used as a design element
  • Perforation can be in the direction of the printed foil (web direction) or across the entire width of the printed foil (Cross web direction)
  • Controlled tearing forces of laser perforation which are defined by the customer
  • There are no restrictions in the expiry date of the foil since barrier properties are preserved
