Our expertise.

Omniform offers a variety of plastics with a wide range of colors and appearances. With our experience and deep understanding of the actual demands, we provide you with our advice and help you to cover all technical aspects and make the right choice.

Our Green Target.

Omniform Group is committed to supplying responsible packaging solutions. We use recycled materials where applicable with high contents of Post-Consumer Waste, thus reducing landfill of valuable resources.

We operate a closed loop recycling program with our suppliers to ensure all our process waste is recovered and re-used locally, within our supply chain.
We target ZERO % landfill.

Omniform’s Material Roadmap

  • Choose the right plastic for the required application

  • Apply highest percentage of recyclable/renewable content
  • Go for sustainability – lowest CO2 carbon footprint

Advantages of designing with plastic

  • Light weight
  • Relatively low cost
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Low electrical and thermal conductivity, insulator
  • Easily formed into complex shapes
  • Customization by wide choice of appearance, colors and transparencies
  • Printing or IML
