The Technical Committees of the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division work together throughout the year to solve problems, develop technical papers, plan conference sessions, and more.

 

Each year, the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division is proud to provide several scholarships and awards.

 

We are proud to provide TAPPI Connect as a centralized, online resource for our members, consultants and volunteers to network, share knowledge, problem solve and collaborate.
