EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- February 11, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY), a leading global manufacturer and
marketer of value-added plastic packaging and engineered materials, today
introduced 3546A single-coated woven tape. 3546A joins Berry’s extensive
offering of woven, flexible film, and transfer adhesives used in the
manufacture of pulse oximeters and other medical devices.

Featuring a 25 mil stretchable woven fabric backing and white rubber-based
medical-grade adhesive, 3546A is designed with both OEM/Converters and
patients in mind.

“A key design feature of 3546A is the easy-release liner that removes quickly
for high speed converting operations as well as the woven backing that readily
accepts ink for excellent print quality,” explained George Kontakos, Berry
Plastics’ Director of Sales for Medical Tapes. “The newly designed tape also
features a specially-formulated rubber adhesive that bonds well without
lifting or flagging and also removes cleanly without causing skin trauma.”

In addition to the 3546A Woven Tape, Berry Plastics also recently developed
and introduced 3426B Flexible Film Tape and 3426A Transfer Adhesive, which
join the Company’s assortment of products for pulse oximetry and medical
device assembly applications.

“Berry Plastics Specialty Tapes Group has an extensive array of products
designed specifically for pulse oximetry applications including several woven,
flexible film, and transfer adhesives. Used separately or in combination with
each other, our products are designed for long-term wear even in the most
challenging medical environments. Berry’s design engineers develop adhesive
solutions to meet the processing requirements of device manufacturers and the
performance needs of medical professionals, keeping in mind our focus on
patient comfort,” added Kontakos.
