Klöckner: BPET films

Suitable for frozen food applications, as well as deep-draw, tray, and blister thermoformed applications, the Pentafood film product line from Klöckner Pentaplast now includes Pentafood BPET films which provide production efficiency for quality thermoforming, better cutting, and no brittleness, as well as lower thermoforming temperature for energy savings.

Designed to be used in conditions as low as -20° C, 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.

Available in a wide range of barriers to moisture, gas, and aroma, Pentafood BPET films feature quality 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). The films run on standard thermoforming and form/fill/seal equipment, and are in compliance with respective EU regulations and directives, as well as the applicable national legislations and international standards.

Engineered to offer high-quality aesthetics for 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 are said to 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 quality production efficiency, formability, and cost savings. Pentafood light BPET films are available in mono- and multi-layer structures with PE and EVOH/PE.
