New packaging film range unveiled by Linpac

Food packaging manufacturer Linpac has launched its new Lintop PE HB SKIN film range. 

The new range has been designed to enhance the performance and shelf-appeal of Linpac’s Rfresh Evolve rPET trays.

Nikki Clark, group marketing manager at Linpac, said: “We’re pleased to launch the new SKIN series, which demonstrates our commitment to offering our customers a streamlined, total pack solution. Using our barrier film expertise to create this advanced skin pack design benefits the whole supply chain and, ultimately, the consumer.”

Offering greater on-shelf appeal due to the highly transparent, matt finish of the LINtop SKIN fully co-extruded top web, the range delivers a secure seal when sealed at low temperatures and efficient ‘easy-peel’ opening for consumer convenience.

The LINtop PE HB SKIN film range joins the existing range of stretch and high barrier PE and PET LINPAC films that are produced in Pontivy, France, for use with LINPAC EPS, PP and rPET trays.

The complete vacuum skin pack solution optimises on-shelf presentation for processed and red meats and fish, due to reduced pack volume, the option to display the pack vertically without cabinet adjustment and less food wastage due to longer shelf-life performance, said the company.

Clear, white and black tray options are available for low-profile and high-protrusion – 80 to 150 µm – applications. Notably, the pack delivers improved flat-pack appearance with less tray distortion, thanks to its production at lower seal temperatures.

The complete skin pack solution is designed for use on existing high-speed, suitably modified tray sealing and thermoforming lines, which offers greater speed to market with less risk for packers, added LINPAC.
