Nicholl takes on Plastopil agency

Nicholl Food Packaging has been appointed UK and Ireland distributor for Plastopil, a packaging manufacturer specialising in polymer-based barrier films.

The company will initially offer Plastopil’s Toplex film for the modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) lidding of trays and form fill seal machines, before adding further products from Plastopil to its portfolio.

Toplex films are suitable for a wide range of chilled and frozen meat products. They are formulated to optimise shelf-life and reduce freezer burn and can be specified in high, medium or low barrier, said the company.

Films can be ordered in a range of thicknesses and used on food trays manufactured from many different materials, including aluminium foil, PE, PP, PS, PVC, PET, ovenable board, pulp board, paperboard and coated compostable fibre.

Various seal layers are available to deliver locked or easy peel sealing, while the easy peel seals can be at different strengths to suit different products. 
The company claimed the films give outstanding clarity and gloss, as well as superior anti-fog properties to maximise on-shelf appeal.
