Klöckner Pentaplast Unveils Pentafood® BPET® Films Featuring Outstanding Sealing Properties

Published on 2013-07-05. Author : SpecialChem

Montabaur, Germany -- The Pentafood® film product line has been extended to include Pentafood®BPET® films. Pentafood®BPET® films are engineered with enhanced production efficiency for outstanding thermoforming, better cutting, and no brittleness. Combined with lower thermoforming temperature for energy savings, these films deliver superior performance and, thereby, cost savings. Pentafood®BPET® films are designed to be used in conditions as low as -20° C, which makes them perfect for frozen food applications. Ideal for deep-draw, tray, and blister thermoformed applications, Pentafood®BPET® films are offered in mono- and multi-layer structures of BPET®, BPET®/PE, and BPET®/EVOH/PE, as well as BPET® light films. Klöckner Pentaplast is a leading global producer of rigid polyester films and is the exclusive supplier of BPET® films.

Available in a wide range of barriers to moisture, gas, and aroma, Pentafood®BPET® films have outstanding sealing properties and multiple sealant options, such as permanent or easy-peel seals. Special sealants that enable sealing through contaminants are also available. These films are offered in a broad range of standard opaque colors and are suitable for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). Pentafood®BPET® films run on standard thermoforming and form/fill/seal equipment. All Pentafood® BPET® films are in compliance with respective EU regulations and directives, as well as the applicable national legislations and international standards.

Engineered to offer superior aesthetics for high shelf impact while providing an opportunity for material reduction, Pentafood® light BPET® films reduce package weight and maintain physical properties comparable to standard materials. These films offer greater than 30% density reduction compared to non-foamed PET products. Their scratch resistant surface and enhanced denesting provide additional benefits. Pentafood® light BPET® films are designed to be used in conditions as low as -40° C for frozen food applications. As with standard Pentafood® BPET® films, they offer high production efficiency, superior formability, and cost savings. Pentafood® light BPET® films are available in mono- and multi-layer structures with PE and EVOH/PE.

"Pentafood® BPET® films were developed to help meet customers' needs for an APET film with enhanced processing efficiency," notes Gabriele Moesges-Haas, Klöckner Pentaplast's packaging product manager for Europe. "The expansion of our Pentafood® food packaging film range to include these unique films continues to provide our customers with the broadest selection of high-performance films available in the global marketplace today."
