TERPHANE LAUNCHES AN INNOVATIVE RESEALABLE SOLUTION
Bloomfield, N.Y. October 2020 – Terphane (www.terphane.com) has successfully launched an innovative resealable solution under the Sealphane® brand. This new PET solution addresses a growing demand for resealable, tamper evident, multi-use lidding solutions.
Sealphane® Reseal film is the result of extensive research and development. Using Terphane’s highly advanced technology, in conjunction with Bostik’s excellent R&D expertise, this PET solution has the ability to peel and reseal multiple times while maintaining strong adhesive force.
“The real breakthrough of Sealphane® Reseal film is that it eliminates the need to label, laser score, or buy any tooling to provide a die cut package. Our technological leap saves time, money, and the risk of capital obsolescence if the tray, or container, changes in the future. In other words, any tray using a lid can change to Sealphane® Reseal with no cost, simply by changing the current roll to our material. Instantly, you have a resealable package,” explained Marcos Vieira, Global R&D Director of Terphane.
“Offering a wide seal range, Sealphane® Reseal is transparent, with excellent thermal stability and mechanical properties that seal to many different substrates while providing excellent barrier to gas, water vapor, and aromas. Terphane’s approach provides full access to the contents of the package and not just through the die cut aperture,” added Marcos.
Sealphane® films offer Brand Owners the advantage of tamper evident packaging, longer and easier product storage, lower transporation costs, and easier disposal of material. All Terphane films are polyester (number “One” recycle code) and exhibit excellent performance in converting processes such as lamination, printing, and micro or macro perforation.
The continued conversion from rigid containers or clamshells to lightweight, flexible packaging drastically reduces environmental impact. Flexible packaging manufacturers are leading the discussion about sustainable packaging. Terphane’s advanced technology and global supply network make it possible to to turn these discussions into actionable results.
Since 1976, Terphane has developed technologies and processes to produce specialty bioriented polyester films (BOPET). With significant experience and technical knowledge in film production, coating and metallization, the company is recognized for its vertical production, from resin to specialty films. Terphane is the leader in PET films in Latin America and an important global player. Terphane is a subsidiary of U.S.-based Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG).
