KM Packaging Services launched a new generation of lightweight, ultra-high performance shrink film for fresh meat and fish producers. Said to offer a significant weight savings of around 12% compared to previous materials, the new soft “drum” touch film is thinner without compromising on seal integrity. Suitable for all rigid tray types with PE sealant layers, the film has superior anti-fog performance and offers superb product clarity with good high-gloss optics. Plus, it features a slight edge shrink with no unsightly film overlap. When sealed, the film does not pull the tray edges together, resulting in an improved shelf appearance. It also meets FDA and CFIA requirements for use in food packaging applications.
