R & D

SSP carries out R & D activities with a focus on innovation in parallel to the technological advances across the world and adopts an approach “Technology for Customers” for activities.

Basic strategies of R & D Department include:

■ Building close relationships with universities and research centers as part of university – industry cooperation in order to implement joint projects,

■ Developing innovative products, product improvement, and developing prototypes and patents,

■ Assessing and reviewing new technologies, defining short-, medium- and long-term technological road map, turning ideas into products and services,

■ Developing new product-specific film structures, particularly for each food product, and generating a formulation using scientific approach for the design of packaging.

SSP R & D Laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art technology devices performs many mechanical and physical tests on plastics and especially on flexible films, barrier films and hygiene products using international standards and testing methods.

The R & D Laboratory has the following testing and analysis devices:

■Any mechanical and optic tests on films

■Structural tests on films

■Oxygen tests and moisture permeability tests on films

■Migration analysis on films
