Placon is all set to launch its new anti-fog lid technology on its entire line of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) cold deli food packaging containers, in a bid to expand and enhance its food packaging lines.

The new anti-fog technology is claimed to provide better product visibility in cold food merchandising displays and helps cut down lid condensation formation.

According to the US-based company, fogging in food packaging applications typically occurs when products such as salsas, salads and other high moisture content foods are merchandised or stored in a cooler environment, such as a cold display case.

The lids are crystal-clear and have been specifically engineered to bead moisture build-up, which allows consumers to view clearly the contents of the PET container.

Placon Stock Products director Jeff Lucash said, "Having the deli market's most reliable, clear lines of thermoformed food containers has always been one of our top priorities, as has our focus and commitment to the sustainability and recyclability of our packaging."

PET deli food containers from Placon are produced with Ecostar RPET-F FDA approved for direct food contact extruded sheet from curbside collected post-consumer bottles and thermoforms.

Made completely from recycled materials, the containers are 100% recyclable.

Placon designs and manufactures custom and stock thermoformed packaging products, as well as environmentally-conscious extruded sheet materials for the retail, food and medical markets.

The company also provides quality and safe packaging products that leverage the power of technology and design to solve the challenges of customers.
