The barrier film creates a vital barrier to prevent oxygen permeation across the films, particularly for food grade applications. Plain and printed film is produced for application in the dairy, fresh produce and alcobev industries.

Plastic packaging products from the Astraflexible division can be found in the food, dairy, fresh produce and alcobev markets. In addition, Geotex in Randfontein serves the agriculture sector with protective netting, shadecloth and rope products.
