Torninova Srl, an Italian maker of dies and downstream equipment for extruding bubble wrap, recently opened an office in Ronkonkoma, N.Y. Torninova also introduced a three-extruder, five-layer coex bubble-wrap line, making an ABCBA barrier structure for the film that is laminated over the bubble film after forming on a chill roll. Coex barrier bubble wrap is used to keep moisture out of building insulation and sound-deadening materials. Torninova is known for industrial bubble-film applications such as floating pool covers, which let heat from sunlight pass into pool water and use the bubble wrap to hold the heat in. Torninova also offers a system that laminates two layers of bubble wrap together, smooth side out. (631) 676-7062 • www.torninova.com
