The holy grail is to capture the one in 10 who say they are completely satisfied with packaging. Why? Because they are more likely than their less satisfied peers to purchase and use products frequently (57 percent versus 47 percent), shop more frequently (24 percent versus 17 percent) and try new products (44 percent versus 36 percent).

MSU study undermines the claims of biodegradation additives for polymers
Packaging Digest
A new study conducted at Michigan State University, reports that the additives touted to promote the biodegradation of polyolefins and PET do not live up to their claims. As the study points out, a number of countries have adopted legislation promoting the use of biodegradation-promoting additives in polyolefins and PET. Yet, as the authors, who are from the MSU School of Packaging and the MSU Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering department noted: "Biodegradation-promoting additives for polymers are increasingly being used around the world with the claim that they effectively render commercial polymers biodegradable. However, there is a lot of uncertainty about their effectiveness in degrading polymers in different environments."

Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements

Winding Machines, Mechanics and Measurements is the definitive book on the science of winding written by noted experts Dr. David Roisum and Dr. JK Good. This three-part book (with supplemental CD-ROM) describes the various classes and arrangements of winding machinery commonly found in the web industries including discussion of controls and defects; describes how roll stresses and roll defects can be predicted by mathematical models and what factors are important; and discusses almost every method for measuring and evaluating wound roll quality. The book describes how and why many wound roll defects occur. In more than a few cases, it even describes when defects occur based on winding models that have matured to the point of trustworthy application. In these cases we have science at its best, a predictive tool. A CD with an easy-to-run winding model is included with every book. However, one need not be a scientist to appreciate and use this text. Much of it is written in everyday language describing the machines we work with, the defects we see and the many measures of roll quality. It is a book that most plants with a winding department would want to have.
