WrinkleSTOP® Spreader Rolls can help converters and their customers offer more sustainable products. WrinkleSTOP® has a proven ability to improve the quality of web production, reduce waste and effectively run thinner gauge materials.

With material costs skyrocketing and new demands for “greener” products converters are facing new challenges to their ability to compete profitably. Since the Wal-Mart sustainability scorecard went into effect in February, sustainability pressure on converters participating in the packaging markets has significantly increased. The “scorecard” is a comprehensive system that rates every aspect of a package's sustainability including materials, manufacturing techniques and shipping, and allows Wal-Mart to give shelf space preference to higher scoring products.

Jeff Damour, CAC Engineering Manager, said: “Strategically employed WrinkleSTOP® Spreader Rolls not only support down-gauging and thinner gauges while generating less waste, they also allow an overall increase in line speeds. Sustainable practices do not have to require compromises. They can also be good business practices. Our aim is to improve efficiency and increase sustainability without compromises in quality or profits.”
