US-based Toray Plastics has launched new LumiLid XL7AF anti-fog and easy-peel PET lidding film, developed for use with polypropylene (PP) food trays.

The new film has been designed for fresh and refrigerated food packaged in PP trays, which includes mineral-filled trays.

Toray Plastics’ Lumirror division sales and marketing senior director Milan Moscaritolo said: "LumiLid XL7AF was developed for a solution to the problem of visible and undesirable condensation, which can occur with fresh food packaged in clear-lidded trays.

"The new XL7AF film’s anti-fog performance contributes to an attractive presentation, and the strong seal helps keep food fresh. Those qualities are essential for brand integrity."

Produced with the firm’s technologically advanced film, the new XL7AF features a proprietary chemically formulated surface for anti-fog performance.

"The new XL7AF film’s anti-fog performance contributes to an attractive presentation."

Suitable for consumer applications such as vegetables, hummus, and salsa, it features a robust sealant layer, which is developed by using the firm’s proprietary extrusion-coated sealant blend.
