Lidding films specialist Rockwell Solutions has launched a new range of laser-perforated or hole-punched peelable lidding film for fresh produce.

The company has invested in the new ranges in order to meet packaging needs in the fresh produce market.

Rockwell Solutions' PermaClear anti-fog technology will be used for the new lines. This technology can be used to seal any tray type, reports Packaging Europe.

The new film is designed especially for the soft fruit market. It will offer extended shelf-life for fruits, such as strawberries and raspberries.

"Rockwell Solutions’ PermaClear anti-fog technology will be used for the new lines."

The company claims that most of the soft fruit packers around the world use amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET) or recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) trays for berries.

Rockwell claims that its Rocklid LT high-clarity peelable lidding film activates from 100ºC, allowing sealing of thin RPET trays. It also claims the product avoids distortions without affecting the seal strength.

As reported in the publication, Rocklid LT is available on 12, 15, 18, 23 and 36 micron polyester.

Rockwell Solutions' products are BRC- and hygiene operational-certified.
