KPeel PLUS+ in action

When it comes to delivering a secure pack seal, we understand the need for lidding films you can rely on. Our customers are already seeing the benefits of KPeel PLUS+ in action. 

With extensive experience of delivering reliable solutions for the ready meal market, our KPeel PLUS+ range of lidding films has been engineered specifically to help our customers conquer the challenge of sealing in demanding circumstances. From oily products and processed vegetables to pasta and sauces, KPeel PLUS+ provides an effective and reliable seal performance when other products simply fail to meet the standard.

A recent development project involving a convenience food manufacturer sealing mashed potato in CPET trays illustrates how KPeel PLUS+ can help to overcome the problem of tray flanges contaminated with food. Working with another supplier’s lidding film, the customer was experiencing continuous leakages resulting in wasted product, time and profitability.  

The KM Packaging technical development team worked with the customer onsite to assess the interface between tray, food, sealing film and sealing equipment in order to determine the ideal film to overcome the problem. The solution required both the sealing and pack design needs to be met without compromising on the functionality and performance of the lidding film.

After thorough trialling and analysis, KPeel PLUS+ was confirmed as the best solution for the job. Due to its heavier sealing layer, the film delivered a reliable seal through the contamination, even with the challenge created by the grease present in the product. The result was a pack that was dual ovenable with high performance anti-fog and exceptional clarity for stand out shelf appeal. 

This leading-edge film design presented the best technical solution in this demanding packing environment. With its heavier weight heat seal coating and wide sealing range, KPeel PLUS+ is perfect for food manufacturers working in environments where there can be high contamination of the tray flange or unusual tray designs. It can be used across the food supply chain in ambient, chilled, frozen and dual ovenable applications. 

Supporting our customers is of the utmost importance to us at KM Packaging. We worked extremely closely with this food manufacturer throughout the process from trial to implementation ensuring they immediately felt the benefit of the increased efficiencies and cost savings created by having a reliable solution they could count on.

To meet the needs of a wide range of pack applications, KPeel PLUS+ is available in a number of thicknesses from 16-40 microns, can be supplied with or without anti-fog, and is suitable for printing and perforation. KPeel PLUS+ seals to APET, RPET, CPET, Mono CPET and PP trays as well as PET and Epoxy lacquered aluminium trays. For manufacturers looking to move to renewable resource trays, KPeel PLUS+ is also suitable for sealing to pulp and PET lined pressed board trays.
