New lightweight packaging materials offer improved shelf efficiencies, on-the-go convenience
Clear Lam Packaging, Elk Grove Village, Ill., launched several new packaging innovations that deliver convenience, portability and maximize on-shelf merchandising.
The products include:
SealChoice PET lidding films, SP705 and SP707, are designed to seal to APET (amorphous polyethylene terephthalate), rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) and CPET (crystallizable polyethylene terephthalate). Recommended applications for SealChoice SP705 include snack kits, meal kits, produce, milk and lunch meat, while SealChoice SP707 was developed for high-pressure processing (HPP) of premium food products, such as deli platters, dips, side dishes and fresh fruits and vegetables.
The film on Clear Lam’s drink pouches absorb distribution abuse, seal-through contamination and feature superior graphics. These pouch stock flexible films are ideal for a variety of dairy applications, including non-fat yogurt for adults and kids and a variety of Stonyfield yogurt pouches.
Clear Lam’s Peel ReSeal technology is designed to replace rigid lids and shrink bands, providing 30% or more weight savings, reducing fuel consumption and increasing cube utilization. The film is hermetically sealed to a rigid or semi-rigid tray, and can extend shelf life when combined with micro perforation or modified atmosphere technology (MAP). This lidding is ideal for deli, bakery, confectionery and produce packaging.
New foamed APET and rPET rigid rollstock is designed to reduce weight, add durable vertical strength and work with existing recycling programs. A variety of opaque and colored rollstocks are available. Product applications include meat and seafood trays, produce containers, portion control cups, bakery containers, deli and cheese trays and meal kits.
