Narrow Web Flexible Packaging

Glenroy pioneered the first line of film-faced laminations designed for narrow web printers over 20 years ago. Now known as ExpressWeb™ films, Glenroy’s cost-effective surface printable flexible packaging materials set the standard for quality.

Our ExpressWeb™ surface printable flexible packaging films are:

  • Stocked and ready to ship within two to three business days.
  • Manufactured with Glenroy’s state-of-the-art extrusion coating and laminating equipment.
  • Compatible with most solvent-based, water-based, and UV ink systems.

Most suppliers of narrow web films do not manufacture all of their own laminations, allowing for inconsistent performance and quality. But when you choose ExpressWeb™, your flexible packaging material will run reliably on your presses and perform consistently in even the most challenging applications.

This adds up to reduced scrap rates, reduced downtime, and satisfied customers who trust your products.

Many narrow web printers choose Glenroy for the unmatched technical expertise of our packaging engineers. We provide comprehensive technical services such as:

  • Product/package compatibility testing
  • Ingredient list analysis
  • Material construction analysis
  • Package engineering
  • Assistance with structure selection
  • On-site technical support

We’re experts in providing structures that meet ever-increasing regulatory demands, and our packaging engineers provide the technical support required to ensure that your projects succeed.
