Flexible packaging and films supplier KM Packaging has launched its K Peel Plus+ range of lidding solutions, which are designed to overcome the challenges faced by many food manufacturers when working in demanding tray sealing conditions.
Part of the K Peel family of peelable polyester lidding films, the range is said to eliminate sealing and contamination issues when packing tricky foodstuffs, such as oily products, processed vegetables, pasta and sauces.
Key features of the K Peel Plus+ are the heavier heat seal coating and wide sealing range, which are claimed to improve performance in both hot and cold conditions. The films can seal to APET, rPET, CPET, Mono CPET and PP trays as well as PET and epoxy lacquered aluminium trays and PET-lined pressed board trays.
To meet the needs of a wide range of pack applications, K Peel Plus+ is available in thicknesses from 16-40 microns and is particularly relevant to manufacturers where there is a high risk of food contamination of the tray flange.
