Bloomfield, N.Y., March 2022 – Terphane (www.terphane.com), a leader in polyester (PET) films and an important global player, will showcase its Sealphane® lidding film solutions for fruit and vegetable packaging at CPMA 2002, April 6th and 7th in Montreal at Booth 1620.
Sealphane® film solutions are used to create lidding and tray packaging with a strong, tamper-evident lidding seal that provides greater protection and longer shelf life for foods than clamshell or other containers. Sealphane® lidding films also deliver environmental benefits by using less plastic in packaging applications. In addition, the Sealphane® family of films are available with Ecophane® technology, which are produced with a minimum of 30% post-consumer recycled PET resin, and Ecophane® bPET films, a biodegradable film manufactured through a technology that enables degradation in landfills.
At the show, Terphane will highlight its Sealphane® line of transparent, biaxially oriented polyester films that deliver excellent thermal and mechanical stability and provide a strong barrier to gas, water vapor, and aroma that can reduce freshness and quality of food products. The films are heat sealable, easily peelable on one side, corona treated on the other for enhanced adhesion to inks, adhesives, and varnishes. Sealphane® includes antifog treated films that reduce fogging and provide high clarity for top notch shelf appearance. Samples of trays sealed with Sealphane® films which include faux fruits and vegetables will be on display, giving visitors an opportunity to see the benefits of Sealphane® films in use.
Terphane will also preview its Sealphane® Reseal solution, an innovative resealable film that meets demand for resealable, tamper evident, multi-use lidding solutions. Currently in development, the Sealphane® Reseal solution eliminates the need to label, laser score, or buy any tooling to provide a die cut package. This technology saves time, money, and the risk of capital obsolescence if the tray or container design changes in the future. Sealphane® Reseal is transparent, with thermal stability and mechanical properties that seal to many different substrates and provide a strong barrier to gas, water vapor, and aromas to keep products safe from contamination and stay fresher, longer.
“Terphane is committed to continuously enhancing capabilities of our lidding film solutions to meet the expectations of our produce packaging customers and the general public for packaging that maximizes food safety and freshness while minimizing the impact on the environment,” said Marcos Vieira, Global R&D Director of Terphane. “We’re excited to meet with customers and look forward to the opportunity to once again share our solutions and expertise in person.”
