Clear Lam Packaging, Inc., Elk Grove Village, Ill., introduced two lid systems for PrimaPak technology. This new rollstock for snap-apart multipack products deliver closure systems that are intuitive and easy to open and close for multi-serve occasions. Clear Lam Packaging

The PrimaPak package is a flexible package produced from custom rollstock on a PrimaPak vertical form-fill-seal (VFFS) machine with a proprietary secondary operation. Designed as a replacement for rigid cans, bottles, trays jars and select flexible packaging, the PrimaPak package is lightweight, stackable, and merchandises on six sides, thus reducing the package cube up to 30% or more.

The two new styles of reclosable lidding systems include:

Peel and ReSeal Lid. This PrimaPak rollstock option opens easily and reseals itself to the package with a light touch. The Peel and ReSeal lid is recommended for select fresh cut produce, dried fruits, nuts and other food products with little to no particulates.

Formed Semi-Rigid Snap Lid. Formed on PrimaPak equipment from custom PrimaPak rollstock, this technology creates a hinged lid that snaps down tight when resealed. Consumers from recent focus group testing found the lid to be easier to close than a zippered lock closure. The snap lid was developed to handle products with a lot of particulate. Applications include fresh cut produce, salad toppings, powders and spices.

To meet growing demand from health-conscious consumers seeking multi-packs of single-portion servings, Clear Lam produced rigid rollstock for a snap-apart package that typically is marketed within traditional retail and club store channels. Produced in Clear Lam’s forming films division, the new rollstock is designed for horizontal form-fill-seal (FFS) equipment and can be produced with traditional petroleum-based resin or bio-based materials. To achieve consistent snap-apart strength, Clear Lam enhances the rollstock with compounded additives produced by its CL polymers division.
