Somater ADF&PCD 2020 à Paris

Somater look forward to meeting you on 29th and 30th January 2020 at ADF&PCD, a flagship event dedicated to packaging for the perfume, cosmetics and make-up markets. How to reconcile sustainable development and economic development? The question will be at the heart of the debate. Somater, a reference player, will present its solutions around eco-design, recycled and bio-sourced materials.

Let’s talk about it! We are waiting for you on our stand C27 (Hall 7.2) at Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles.

We would like to heartily congratulate our customer BIOTHERM for the innovation award it won at the PCD event held in Paris in January 2019. BIOTHERM won over the panel of judges with its new BIOTHERM Aquasource bottle.

Plastuni Normandy, SOMATER group’s leading plant in the premium and luxury segments of the cosmetics packaging sector, is behind the latest innovative bottle in the BIOSOURCE range.

The bottle’s design meets the challenge of significantly reducing weight through optimal control of the ISBM (Injection Stretch Blow Moulding) process and fulfils the desire, shared by our two companies, to reduce our environmental footprint.

This eco-design is enhanced by a responsible choice of resins (recycled PET) and optimisation of the BIOTHERM bottle’s packaging when it leaves our plant.

Somater and the entire Plastuni Normandy team are delighted to have contributed to this success, which underlines our commitment to creating packaging that is consistently more environmentally-friendly.

The Plastuni Lisses factory has been awarded the Flexostar Gold Medal prize for 2017, for its work on the laminated “Body Shop Hand Cream” tube, which was picked out by the French Technical Association for Flexographic Printing (Association Technique Française de Flexographie; ATF-Flexo) within the category covering Complex Film printing using UV inks.

Somater’s expertise in the field of the decoration of packaging, using flexographic techniques, has provided The Body Shop, with the results they were hoping for, both in terms of technical aspects and aesthetic appearance; the ability to reproduce the process; the aluminium colouring and the fidelity to the original design documentation.

As part of its backup solutions security plan (BCP) and to meet the growing needs of a strategic customer, Somater Marolles has integrated its first bi-axial injection stretch blow moulding line.
In keeping with Somater’s ambitions, the line offers a high level of technological performance and delivers 100% of the in process innovations imagined by our experts.
