Suitable for fresh and processed meat and fish, as well as hard cheese, the new packaging is heat resistant up to 90°C and is made with low EVOH content without compromising the shelf-life of perishable foods.

Certified as recyclable by Cyclos-HTP, it is recyclable within PE streams* and offers up to 80%** lower carbon footprint compared to existing PA/PE thermoforming films.

Amcor’s thermoformable films are highly transparent with a clear gloss to help demonstrate the quality of products to shoppers by creating a tight, wrinkle-free packaging. Ranging from 85 to 200 microns thicknesses with custom-engineered forming, the packaging is puncture and abrasion resistant for increased product protection.

The PrimeSealâ„¢ and DairySealâ„¢ films are now available for customer orders in Europe, Middle East, and Africa.


*Countries where recycling for this new packaging is available at scale, according to Cyclos-HTP certificate: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia.

**Carbon footprint reduction based on an ASSET™ lifecycle assessment. An 80% carbon footprint reduction is based on a cradle-to-grave comparison of a standard in 135µ thermoformable film containing PA vs. Amcor PrimeSeal™ and DairySeal™ Thermoforming Films containing EVOH. The ASSET™ methodology is certified by the Carbon Trust.
