Plastic Films Business

FeatureGunze Plastics Film Company is committed to realizing a sustainable society, and we are sincerely committed to addressing global environmental issues.
Gunze plastic films have been finding steadily increasing applications closely related to everyday life. For example, Gunze’s shrink film is used for plastic beverage bottles as well as packages for food, toiletry items, and other daily-use commodities, while our anti-fogging film is suitable for wrapping mushrooms, bean sprouts, and other fresh produce. In particular, shrink film used for beverage bottles maintains a very high share of the Japanese market.
In addition to providing the utility of packaging and wrapping, we strive to develop films that are easy to open and peel off,
and which build sustainability of the environment through Gunze’s cutting-edge technology.
