Amcor has announced the European launch of its new PrimeSeal and DairySeal Recycle-Ready Thermoforming Films for meat and dairy, to offer excellent packaging performance and improved circularity of packaging. Suitable for fresh and processed meat and fish, as well as hard cheese, the new packaging is heat resistant up to 90°C and is made with low Ethylene-Vinyl Alcohol Copolymer (EVOH) content without compromising the shelf-life of perishable foods. Certified as recyclable by Cyclos-HTP, it is recyclable within Polyethylene (PE) streams and offers up to 80% lower carbon footprint compared to existing PA/PE thermoforming films.
The new thermoformable films are highly transparent with a clear gloss to help demonstrate the quality of products to shoppers by creating a tight, wrinkle-free packaging. Ranging from 85 to 200 microns thicknesses with custom-engineered forming, the packaging is puncture and abrasion resistant for increased product protection.
