Astro Films is a renowned manufacturer of CPP, BOPP and BOPET films and, owned and operated by Ismail Industries Limited. Astro Films is a family comprising of three brand names: Astro Pack, Plastiflex Films Pvt. Limited, and Astro Plastics Pvt. Limited. We are the proud manufacturers of CPP, BOPP & BOPET films, not only well recognized locally but globally as well. While being located in the southern region of Pakistan, we are the only packaging film maker in Pakistan, which can provide its customers with a total solution in flexible packaging with in-house manufacturing of CPP, PET film along with metalized and twistable PET and, BOPP films and chemical-coated films in different thickness grades.
Astro Pack, with its operations at Hub / Baluchistan, owns a three layer CPP Plant manufactured by a renowned Italian Company “Gruppo Colines” having a capacity of producing 5,000 tons of CPP film annually.
While continuing to be a strong believer of acquiring distinction, Astro Films has come up with a plan of enhancing its current production capacity of CPP Film by adding a new production line of 12000MTA. With this new production line, Astro Films’ total installed capacity in CPP has now been augmented to 17000 metric tons annually.
In order to meet the rising demand of the country and to cater to customers’ needs on time, the group decided to go into expansion in 2010 and established a new company with the name of Plastiflex films Pvt. Limited to produce BOPP films. A Bruckner line having the capacity to produce 5,000 tons annually is functioning at Gadani (very close to Hub) / Baluchistan.
In 2011, the company embarked in further expansion of its packaging film production capacity by ordering the first ever in Pakistan BOPET film line to Bruckner. With an annual capacity of 18000 tons per annum, this film line ensures a highly efficient production of flexible BOPET packaging film ranging from 12 to 150 microns.
While selecting plant and equipment, due care was taken to ensure that the new production line would be based on the latest technology available. The enhanced features in the new line of BOPET will further improve the operational efficiency and provide with the technical capabilities to meet the expectations of the customers.
This film line ensures a highly efficient production of flexible BOPET packaging film ranging from 12 to 150 microns. Supplemented with the most superior technology, this manufacturing facility can produce BOPET films for high speeds with fine optical and mechanical properties.
