This area of application is to define all the applications where the filmic substrates are directly used with only limited post-production, generally sealing/bag-making and simple printing. In this field we may start with films designed to be transformed in shopping or carrier bags alongside with specialty bags for heavy duty applications (FFS). On wider webs a today popular and fast growing application is represented by stretch hood tubings, a valuable palletizing alternative to stretch-wrapping of shrink-hooding. Large volumes are also going toward the general purpose packaging business, with film direct application. Specialty applications may also be found in this field where, to name just a few, surface protection and masking films. This is the usual domain of three layer technologies, with growth area for five layer systems.
