Blown Extrusion Film/Sheeting

Raven currently houses some of the largest 7-layer barrier extrusion lines in North America, pushing the envelope for wide-width multi-layer film manufacturing. We are committed to investing in the future with the latest technology advancements to further enhance our capabilities in line with our state-of-the-art core manufacturing equipment.

Raven delivers full-scale manufacturing solutions by providing multi-layer blown and cast film/sheeting, lamination/coating, custom converting and printing. Our manufacturing facilities include seven locations spanning across 847,000 sq.ft. with strategic locations across the United States. Raven is an industry leader in high-value, high-performance polymers and composite materials combining innovative technology and inputs to provide thinner, lighter and stronger product solutions by producing one of the widest range of sizes, material types, and thicknesses in the industry today.

Our large seven-layer lines produce 1 to 80 mil barrier blown films and sheeting in widths up to a massive 32 feet in circumference. They also produce sheeting up to 80 mils thick (16' single wound sheeting) with optional surface texturing available. These lines house unique seven-layer dies manufactured with the latest extrusion technology and engineered to provide maximum versatility. Utilizing seven individual extruders, they are capable of processing some of the widest and thickest (EVOH, Nylon) barrier structures available in the industry. Other wide-width multilayer films are produced on lines capable of reaching an impressive 40 foot width and a thickness ranging from 0.50 mil up to 80 mil.

Our extensive experience in designing film and sheeting has enabled us to offer a variety of products, each formulated to meet our customer's individual requirements in addition to our standard product line. We accomplish this through the guidelines of our ISO 9001 certified management program.

All Raven products developed and produced in our South Dakota, Texas, and California facilities are manufactured in a quality-controlled environment under our stringent ISO 9001 certified management system to assure we achieve complete customer satisfaction and continuous improvement in all phases of our business. Our newest facility located in Waynesboro, Virginia will operate in compliance with all internal quality control standards, and is targeted to begin future preparations in attaining ISO 9001 certification status.
