Flexible Packaging Association Honors Coating Excellence International for Packaging Excellence

Company's Super-Tube Woven Bag Awarded Silver Medal

WRIGHTSTOWN, WI--(Marketwire - March 7, 2008) - Coating Excellence International (CEI), the Wisconsin-based, market-leading flexible packaging company specializing in extrusion coating, laminating, printing and woven bags, today announced the honor of receiving a Flexible Packaging Association Packaging Excellence Award for its Super-Tube woven bag. The awards, given out during the 2008 Flexible Packaging Association's annual meeting, held March 5th-7th, recognize the best, highest quality and most innovative products within the flexible packaging sector.

Coating Excellence International's Super-Tube is made with tear and puncture-resistant woven, along with FDA and AID-approved water-based inks that are reverse-printed onto the bags for a high-gloss and durable finish. Additionally, utilizing high-quality water-based inks insures that the quality, taste and safety of the product inside are not affected.

From the more than thirty entries in the Packaging Excellence category, only seven were awarded medals. Other companies with winning entries in the category included: Alcan, Exopack, Printpack and CLP.

An additional benefit of Super-Tube is that it resists flex-cracking. Flex-cracking results when the clay-coated layer on traditional, multi-wall paper bags is folded. The end result is little white lines that give a very worn appearance and make the product appear much less desirable. CEI's film does not crack so the woven maintains its "new" appearance for a much longer time. Super-Tube can be utilized with a variety of products, including dog food, horse feed and bird seed.

"The benefits of Super-Tube are far reaching," said Michael Nowak, president of Coating Excellence International. "The high-quality water-based inks provide vibrant branding for retailers, and the super-strong mesh ensures a durable end product for the consumer."
