Details

Created for fresh produce packaging, the new CT-311 shrink film from Sealed Air is touted as the first micro-layered anti-fog film that is also one of the thinnest—at 35-gauge. It is being positioned as an alternative to PVC film for cold-chain produce applications. Compared to the 60-gauge PVC film often used in these situations, CT-311 saves up to 20% of material usage and up to 67% of material weight for a typical 8-oz package.

In addition, the film promotes food safety benefits by giving produce packers a cost-effective packaging option. And fresh produce that is packed at a central location and then distributed to retailers minimizes the risk of cross-contamination during packaging at the store level.

Reid Kennedy, marketing director, shrink packaging solutions for Sealed Air’s Product Care Div., states, “CT-311’s combination of excellent optics, increased performance and microwave compatibility delivers the most complete shrink material available for fresh produce, all while enabling packagers to reduce their material usage.”
