Raven manufactures high performance polymer film and sheeting for the industrial packaging market through the latest in state-of-the-art equipment and select raw materials, including blown and cast film and sheeting, lamination and coating, conversion capabilities, and an accredited test lab and development facility. Product types include custom designed polymers, unique specialty cast composite materials, textured membranes, and lamination sheeting built to precise specifications.
Our expertise in formulating products to meet specific performance parameters is second to none; we are available to work closely with you, and help tackle your most challenging requirements.
Our driven product development team consists of design engineers, R&D and process technicians, and principle scientists with vast experience in the design and development of polymer materials. We are capable of designing up to 9-layer, multi-layer structure films from ultra-thin 0.30 mil, to heavy grade 80 mil thick and up to 40' wide large master rolls. Our experience with critical-mission film design dates back to our early years when we pioneered an innovative ultra-thin film for the construction of high-altitude research balloons for NASA. To date, we have developed many complex film formulations to meet specific customer and industry standards. Simply bring us your requirements, such as barrier properties, heat seal ability, tear resistance, impact strength, chemical resistance, or any other critical properties, and we will tailor a product to meet your expectations. Raven is a first choice in quality through our impressive technology solutions center, an accredited laboratory, the latest in testing equipment (GAI-LAP Accredited), and state-of-the-art pilot extrusion lines to design and build your product from start to finish.
A vital part of product performance is quality raw materials. We process prime resins and additives (including LDPE, LLDPE, MDPE, HDPE, EVA, PP, NYLON, EVOH, TPO and METALLOCENE based resins), controlling every aspect and providing the ultimate in flexibility for film and sheeting design and overall product function.
Below are some applications where we have designed custom solutions for various market needs, from OEM manufacturing process films to barrier flexi-tubing for the transportation of fine wines, oils and many other delicate cargos that need protection from oxygen and contaminants during transport. Barrier flexi-tubing is also a reliable solution for transporting many types of chemicals that require sealed containment and can easily be fabricated by OEM manufacturers to comply with their current specifications.
