Terphane responded to increasing requirements for consumer convenience, packing efficiency, extended shelf life, and food safety, by making its films provide the fresh appearance and safety demanded by today’s consumers.
Today, more than ever before, it is critical to prevent direct consumer handling and possible contamination at the store. The extra protection that lidded containers offer improves food sanitation while extending product shelf life. Packaged produce, when offered in hygienic transparent packaging, is efficient for both the producer and the supermarket and connotes safety and freshness to the consumer.
Many refrigerated items exhibit fogging within the package which may hinder the customer’s view of the product. Fogging occurs when humidity in the headspace of the package condenses on the inner surface of the film, forming many small droplets which may obstruct the customer’s view of the product. It can be a more serious impediment in the frozen food section. The result is often a lost sale and increased food waste.
Terphane combats fogging by incorporating safe ingredients into the film. When the moisture in the package condenses onto the film’s surface, the antifog film merges the moisture into a transparent window. This allows a clear and crisp view of the product. Utilizing our antifog film improves the visibility of the food product. A better view of the product connotes freshness and has greater appeal to consumers.
If weld seals are desired, our Sealphane 10.94TAF is designed to be used in flow wrapper packs, SUP pouches, or weld sealed when lidding APET trays. The strong weld seal allows for heavy products to be packed in the pouch and provides tamper evidence when using it to lid trays.
