Our Roots

Barrier protection

Fluorination is the process of bonding fluorine atoms to the interior of a plastic container, creating an impermeable membrane. This barrier protects your packaging from distortion, odor emission and product loss through permeation.

Products that would benefit from fluorine-treated packaging include herbicides, cleaners and other solvent-based chemicals.

Why in-mold
fluorination?

During the production stage of your packaging, in-mold fluorination is a more cost-effective and timely alternative to post-fluorination. Some benefits of in-mold fluorination include:

  • Shorter lead-time
  • Eliminates multiple shipping and labor charges
  • Eliminates potential container damage caused by a post-fluorination process
  • Allows packaging to be sleeved and labeled during production
  • Minimizes cost and overall environmental impact related to product reheating, transportation and handling

Reliance is the only provider of in-mold fluorination for bottles and tight heads in Canada. Not sure if your product would benefit from fluorination?

Our Commitment to Sustainability

As a leading manufacturer of plastic products, we have a responsibility to protect our environment. From design and production, to packaging and transportation, our goal is to minimize our environmental impact wherever possible. It's through our thoughtful process that we strive to keep our planet great for generations to enjoy.
  • Our sustainable “cradle-to-cradle” (C2C) design creates recyclable products that can be reprocessed to create new packaging.
  • Our “closed loop” operation minimizes production waste by grinding and feeding all excess plastic back into the manufacturing process.
  • Our involvement as board and committee members in the industry recycling programs of Cleanfarms and ACRC assures we are on the forefront to minimize our environmental footprint.
