Filmcast Extrusions: New co-extruded PP wrapping film

Filmcast Extrusions, UK, has taken its first trial orders for a new fresh food co-extruded PP wrapping film that it claims will eliminate misting of packaged products such as pre-prepared salads and vegetables.According to Steve Cowie, chief executive of Filmcast parent Learoyd Group, the film incorporates a modified internal layer, which controls water droplet nucleation on the film surface. “Usually this is got around by using expensive modified atmosphere packaging or perforations, which reduce the shelf life,” he said. The anti-mist film will be market-tested by an unnamed UK supermarket group.
