Flexible packaging solutions provider KM Packaging has introduced KPeel PLUS+ range of lidding solutions.
The new advanced lidding solution, which is a part of company’s K Peel versatile peelable polyester lidding films, is designed to meet the food manufacturers’ challenges when working in demanding tray sealing conditions.
The new solution overcomes the sealing and contamination challenges, mostly when packing foodstuffs, such as oily products, processed vegetables, pasta and sauces, KM Packaging said.
KM Packaging technical head Nigel Down said: “KPeel PLUS+ enables us to deliver a broad range of high performance solutions that combine a heavier heat seal coating with excellent transparency, clarity and print properties. We can therefore tailor solutions for our customers’ specific sealing conditions without compromising on pack functionality and performance.
“This results in real, measurable benefits including time and cost savings, as well as enhanced presentation, so important in today’s dynamic retail environment. KPeel PLUS+ provides effective and reliable seal performance when other solutions simply fail to meet the standard.”
Featuring properties such as heavier heat seal coating and wide sealing range, the KPeel PLUS+ offers enhanced performance in both hot and cold conditions.
The new range is ideal for sealing to APET, RPET, CPET, Mono CPET and PP trays as well as PET and Epoxy lacquered aluminium trays and PET lined pressed board trays.
The firm said that the new range of lidding films can also be used for a multitude of food applications including ambient, chilled and frozen, is dual ovenable and available with or without anti-fog.
Additionally, the KPeel PLUS+ provides a firmer, stronger peel reducing loss and food waste in the supply chain, even when no contamination issues are present.
The firm has developed the new KPeel PLUS+ in thicknesses from 16-40 microns to meet the wide range of pack applications.
