The award-winning packaging is a combination of two films: thermoformable bottom film and flexible lidding film. The bottom web is a 9-layer co-extruded transparent film with a gauge of 140 microns and a top web is an 11-layer laminated film with a total thickness of 60 microns. This top web is made of two laminated films: internal layer is produced by Intrama, and the external layer is Polysack’s 25-micron thick Pack N Cycle MDO (machine direction oriented) film.
The package is described as medium gas barrier, suitable for meat, dairy, fish and sea food as well as non-food products. It has been certified recyclable by the Cyclos-HTP Institute, of Germany.
