Multipeel xPET Films
Crystal-Clear and Resealable
The Multipeel family from Südpack Verpackungen GmbH & Co KG, Ochsenhausen, Germany, has a new member: The crystal-clear top film Multipeel xPET can be securely sealed to all PET trays and films (CPET, APET) at temperatures starting at 145°C. An innovation in resealing films, it works perfectly with crystalline PET treated with anti-block or silicone.
Multipeel xPET is an evolution of Multipeel for mono-APET. Unlike other standard solutions on the market, it ensures completely safe sealing on all kinds of trays and hard PET films – at an unusually low sealing temperature of 145°C. Even trays with crystalline PET resulting from reheating the material (for example after production line interruptions) are perfectly sealed with the newest Multipeel product. Multipeel xPET is also easy to use on trays or films treated with anti-block or silicone and is available with or without high barrier
The new top film is ideal for cold meats and cheeses in thermoformed packaging, as well as for sealing Mono PET trays used for vegetables or snack products. Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is also possible with Multipeel xPET. In addition to the freshness of packaged products, consumers have come to appreciate some of the other features of the new film. These include easier opening and resealing of the package, which the new top film Multipeel xPET enables thanks to high material rigidity with reduced thickness. Multipeel xPET also ensures a crystal-clear view of the product inside. Customers have practically unlimited choices when it comes to labeling the new film: Multipeel xPET can be printed using digital, flexographic or gravure processes. In addition to Multipeel xPET, the film is available in a peel version with the same unbeatable sealing properties. Peel xPET lies flat and is easy to open without aids.
Multipeel xPET can be processed on thermoforming lines or with tray sealers. Its special properties ensure reliable production without sealing defects. Without compromising product protection, the film is thinner than the previous version and requires fewer resources. Sealing on PET eliminates the PE sealing layer on the base film – and saves resources. This also offers important benefits in terms of storage and logistics. Minimizing material consumption means less storage space required for materials and fewer roll changes in production. The weight of the product packaging is also reduced.
