At Golden Eagle Extrusions, Inc., we provide custom film laminations designed for the food, food container, beverage, industrial, and medical industries. Our capabilities include high speed and high capacity film lamination as well as short run service, as needed. Our flexible packaging film lamination is performed using a two-component, solventless, polyurethane adhesive process. Once cured, the adhesive is clear, odor free and safe to use for food packaging. Solventless adhesives are compatible with a wide range of film lamination materials and packaging substrates, including LLDPE, PET, metallized PET, Polypropylene, Nylon, Foil, among numerous others..
Films are laminated using CNC processes at speeds of up to 1,300 feet per minute, allowing us to turn around projects quickly. Our comprehensive laminating equipment includes two Enercon corona treaters to convert low surface energy films and to ensure a perfect bond every time. We also use chilled and heated rollers during production to help with bond strength, film lamination flexibility and machinability. A modified cleanroom, complete with three filtered exhausts, can also be used for specialty production. Products ranging from 16”-59” in web width, up to 40” in OD and weights up to 2,200 lbs. per roll can be laminated on our machine. We can produce film laminations with up to four layers that are applied in a three pass system.
Full lab services are available to verify bond strength, peel strength, film lamination thickness, etc. In addition, we can provide a certificate of analysis for each shipment and all materials are manufactured following GMPs and HACCP quality controls. Documentation to conform to all regulatory compliance and customer standards can be provided as required and lead times typically average 2-3 weeks.

Advantages of Film Lamination
Film lamination offers many benefits to manufacturers and customers alike. First and foremost, it provides a protective barrier that helps preserve the quality and freshness of food products. This is especially important for perishable goods that need to be transported over long distances. Additionally, film lamination can enhance the overall appearance of packaging, making it more appealing to consumers on store shelves. Laminated films can also provide various functionality such as heat sealability, moisture resistance, and puncture resistance.
Custom film lamination allows for versatility in packaging design. Different films can be laminated together to create unique and customized packaging solutions for each product. This can help companies stand out in a competitive market and attract consumers with eye-catching packaging designs.
At Golden Eagle Extrusions, Inc., we also offer sustainability options for our custom film lamination. We have the capability to use biodegradable and compostable films in our film laminations, providing environmentally-friendly packaging solutions for our customers.
