Fresh food packaging manufacturer Linpac has introduced a new film range, LINtop PE HB SKIN, to complement its existing product portfolio.

The new high-barrier polyethene (PE) vacuum skin top films are designed to enhance the performance and shelf-appeal of its Rfresh Evolve recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) trays.

Linpac group marketing manager Nikki Clark said: “We’re pleased to launch the new SKIN series, which demonstrates our commitment to offering our customers a streamlined, total pack solution.

"Using our barrier film expertise to create this advanced skin pack design benefits the whole supply chain and ultimately the consumer.”

The solution is said to offer a secure seal when packaged at low temperatures, increasing shelf-life, while its transparent, matte finish enhances the presentation of processed food, red meats and fish.

Available in clear, white and black tray options for low profile and high protrusion 80µm to 150µm applications, the pack is claimed to provide an improved flat-pack appearance with less tray distortion due to production at lower seal temperatures.  

The complete skin pack solution is designed for use on high-speed tray sealing lines and thermoforming lines, resulting in a faster, safer production process for packers.

Linpac also produces a range of stretch and high-barrier PE and PET LINPAC films in Pontivy, France, for use with its Linpac EPS, polypropylene (PP) and rPET trays.
