FLEXcon launches new PVDC-coated film for resealable food packaging

FLEXcon has introduced a new PVDC-coated film, optiFLEX RESEAL BARRIER Clear, in a move to cater to the growing demand for resealable food packaging.

FLEXcon has introduced a new PVDC-coated film, optiFLEX RESEAL BARRIER Clear, in a move to cater to the growing demand for resealable food packaging.

The new film will enable food to retain freshness by serving as a barrier against moisture to increase shelf life.

Specially designed for resealable packaging, the product will retain moisture and prevent drying of produce, meats, cheeses and wet wipes, or keep moisture out to prevent staling of nuts and other snack foods.

FLEXcon product identification market development specialist Michelle Lamontagne said: "As the use of resealable packaging continues to increase, there is a growing need in the food market for packaging materials that enhance shelf life by maintaining food freshness.

"The new film will enable food to retain freshness by serving as a barrier against moisture to increase shelf life."

"The barrier properties of the PVDC-coated polypropylene provide moisture control ideal for these purposes, and this product serves as an example of our continued effort to meet the unique needs of the food packaging market."

optiFLEX RESEAL BARRIER Clear uses a 2mm clear PVDC-coated flexible BOPP film with a resealable adhesive and TRACrite 120 polyester release liner, which is said to offer on-press performance for tight-registration graphics.

The film is compliant with 21 CFR 175.320 and 21 CFR 177.1520 for food contact, while the adhesive is compliant with 21 CFR 175.105 for indirect food contact.

It is suitable for maintaining the ‘no-label’ look on printed flexible packaging material.

The print-receptive surface of the film is compatible with flexo, rotary screen, rotary letterpress and hotstamping, and also allows for optimum ink laydown.
