Custom Capabilities

Extrusion

API extrudes a variety of flexible polyethylene from general purpose liner grade to high impact materials. Utilizing a state of the art blending system for special formulations allows us to accurately include additives such as ultra-violet inhibitors, anti-static, slip or anti-blocking agents, along with other special blends. Company logos, product warning labels or consumer messages are some examples of our use of 1-color print available through our extrusion department.

Converting

API excels in the custom manufacturing of plain and printed polyethylene bags and sheets. Our converting equipment is engineered to offer a variety of configurations such as header packages, serrations, bottom gussetts, flips, vents and handles. These are only a few of the many options available to our customers. Plain or printed, wicket or side seal, all can be manufactured to accommodate top or bottom loading with a re-closable zip seal. This system protects the contents against handling moisture, air and any outside contaminate.

Flexographic Printing

API quality standards ensure every customer receives packaging that is unsurpassed in quality and detail, order after order. Our highly trained staff are veterans in the packaging industry, having on average 25 years of experience with API. We can assist in all phases of the printed products we manufacture starting with design, layout, and color breakdowns. We use specialized inks along with in-house, computerized color matching systems. Press plate mounting and proofing ensure accurate color to color registration and perfect print positioning on the final product. We can meet the most demanding and detailed end-use requirements.

Slitter

API has the ability to slit multiple web printed/unprinted rolls into customer requested roll diameters, widths, and weights. API also offers material folding benefits so your product can be printed across the entire film sheet and folded for overwrap baggers.
