KM Packaging launches new lidding film

KM Packaging Services has launched a new lidding film created specifically for “demanding” applications.

The new KPeel Flex Pet film offers enhanced seal integrity and puncture resistance, the company claims.

The lidding film also offers “high impact resistance even under frozen conditions” and is “particularly suited” to applications where food is pre-baked or cooked in a tray prior to sealing.

KPeel Flex Pet is available in 42, 52 and 62 microns and is suitable for microwave cooking.

Graham Holding, commercial director at KM Packaging, explained, “According to WRAP, the Waste & Resources Action Programme, the total volume of food waste increased by 4.4 per cent between 2012 and 2015 despite targets intended to turn the tide. Whilst the food industry itself is responsible for only a proportion of this waste, it’s believed that poor or damaged packaging is a notable contributor.

“KM Packaging is working tirelessly to not only anticipate trends in demand and introduce exciting new products, but also to ensure that those new products help to tackle some of the issues faced by the food processing and packaging sectors.

“KPeel Flex Pet is a real breakthrough in technology that we are confident provides a robust, reliable solution to protect all manner of foodstuffs, and it is rapidly becoming a go-to film for demanding sealing requirements.”
