Scanfoil PET is another alternative for sustainable food packaging. It is a thermoforming APET grade, great for transparent applications, and also available in a recycled version.
The gas barrier is great, which gives possibilities in high demanding applications to lengthen the shelf life.
Scanfoil PET is a widely used polymer that is easy to form and works in most machines. It can be used for many applications like cold and chilled food, secondary and industrial packaging.
Besides the transparent grades, Scanfoil PET is also available in multiple colors, including Carbon Black Free dark colors, even black.
rPET – Recycled PET
Scanfoil rPET can be a mix of APET and rPET or 100% rPET depending on the requirements and the wanted green profile. Due to our machine layer structure possibilities, food contact material is also possible for foil with recycled content.
The transparency is depending on the level of rPET used in the foil. The environmental savings are good due to the reuse of post-industrial or post-consumer recycled material.
Anti-fog is a great option for lids, which prevents mist caused by temperature change. This additive will keep the material transparent at all times.
An Anti-Block agent will decrease the static charge, making it easier to process and handle the foil. A slip agent gives the surface of the foil or packaging a lower friction coefficient, making the stacking station in the thermoforming machine and the tray feeding process in the filling machine easier.
