Supply Chain Phase


A major packaging manufacturer has launched two new light-weight packaging films – a lock seal film and a peelable film – for the fresh meat, poultry and fish sectors.
The films are designed to offer a light-weight lidding material whilst retaining optical and seal integrity requirements to ensure shelf appeal.

The lock seal film is available in a 42 micron gauge 35 micron gauge (which the company claims is one of the lowest available on the market). The lock film outperforms other films’ anti-fog qualities, while the peelable film is in line with the market for anti-fog and barrier qualities.
The LINtop polypropylene HB Lock Seal and the LINtop PP HB Peelable films have been produced by LINPAC Packaging and are designed to work with all PP trays, but are specifically designed for optimum performance with the company’s own trays.
The content in this entry has been obtained from publicly available information sources only (e.g. press releases, website and trade press articles) and is subject to completion of a validation process with the technology supplier.

Potential Benefits

These lightweighted films will provide cost and environmental benefits. The light-weighted films reduce the amount of material consumed and the energy used in production without affecting performance.

Intellectual Property

These films are the proprietary technology of LINPAC Packaging.
