The production of a three-layer tubular FFS film to pack polymer products began at Kazanorgsintez. The new production facility was launched by Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov. The launch ceremony was also attended by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade of Tatarstan Albert Karimov.
The line was opened on the premises of the LPPE production and processing plant, which is part of the Kazanorgsintez structure. The old building of one of the plant's workshops was completely reconstructed to house the new line; some new equipment was made deliberately for this production facility, such as Reifenhauser Blown Film three-layer extrusion unit for film production and Windmoller & Holsher flexographic machine for package marking.
The commissioning of the FFS film production line will completely eliminate the need to purchase imported packaging and products made from imported feedstock and will make it possible to increase the output of in-house processing of various PE brands, films, and to reduce production costs. The annual economic effect will exceed RUB 51 million.
The industrial development in the country is conducted in accordance with one of the May 2012 decrees by the Head of State (No. 596 “On State Long-Term Economic Policies”).
