Frequently asked questions

1) What does “Experts in Foil Packaging” mean?


- It means that we have been dealing for decades with "foils", i.e. the sheets - usually multi-layered - that can be used for the airtight packaging of products that need it. With the most widespread closing technologies, at least one of the layers must be some kind of plastic that melts and ensures a secure seal  when it cools. Other layers can be some other type of plastic or paper to maintain the geometric features, aluminum to prevent evaporation losses, etc.


2) Why do some single-use wet wipes dry quickly while others don't?

- It has to do with the material of the outer packaging. The metal sheet exhibits the lowest permeability to all liquids, while there are polymers with greater resistance to specific liquids.


3) Are the foils recyclable?

- Since the foil is made up of different materials, it is not considered recyclable. However, research is ongoing for the development of materials that in themselves have satisfactory properties.


4) What material is the wipe made of?

- Wet wipes are usually made of non-woven, a material that can consist of vegetable or synthetic ingredients or a mixture of them. It has significant absorbency, so that it retains a sufficient amount of the soaking liquid. For special applications absorbent paper is used.


5) Is non woven biodegradable?

- Non wovens made from vegetable ingredients are biodegradable and are often referred to as "ecological". Of particular interest are non-wovens made of bamboo, which is considered to contribute to sustainable development, due to the ability to quickly replenish the raw material.


6) What are Doy Packs?

- Doy Pack bags (aka Stand-Up Pouches) are foil bags, with their main feature being that their base expands and can stand upright on the support surface, while maintaining their geometry so that their side surface appears readable. They may be printed or externally labeled. Some are zipped so they can be reused after initial opening. The term “doy pack type” is often mistakenly believed to refer to zip.


7) What are the advantages of disposable packaging?

- Single-use packaging has the advantage, on the one hand, of drastically reducing the possibility of micro-organism transmission compared to multi-use packaging. This is of particular value for microbiologically sensitive items such as food and cosmetics. Also, where quantitative portion / dose control is important, single-use individual packaging is particularly useful.


8) How are foils printed?

- Foil printing methods practically cover the entire range of surface printing methods. They usually affect the cost of the product by incurring a charge independent of quantity. The most common factors that determine the choice of printing method are the color complexity, the accuracy of the design, the material of the printing surface, but also the quantity of production. Consultation with the producer is typically required to select the most appropriate method.


9) What are antiseptic wipes impregnated with?

- The wipes referred to as antiseptics are impregnated with some antiseptic solution, which contains some biocidal active substance. The handling of biocidal substances for production or packaging requires (in Greece) a special license of the production unit from the ΝΟΜ (National Organization for Medicines, ΕΟΦ). Also, a 50-80% alcohol solution can be used, which has a mild antiseptic effect and is considered a cosmetic. Therefore, no biocides licensing is required for its management. Cosmetics regulations apply to these wipes, as do all wet wipes intended for contact with the human body.


10) What is CPNP?

- CPNP (Cosmetic Products Notification Portal) is the online notification system created to implement the current EU regulation on cosmetic products. In the CPNP, before each cosmetic product is placed on the market, the information required by the regulation is registered, so that it is available, electronically, to the competent authorities (for the purposes of market surveillance, market analysis, evaluation and updating of consumers) and in poison centers or similar bodies established by the Member States (for the purposes of treatment). Since 2013 all cosmetic products available in the EU need to have a CPNP registration number.
