Clear Lam Launches Lightweight Packaging Materials

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL | To satisfy the grab-and-go consumer mindset, Clear Lam Packaging has launched several new packaging innovations that deliver convenience, portability, and maximize on-shelf merchandising.

Highlighted at the International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Assn. Expo in Houston, TX, June 5-7, Clear Lam introduced new flexible polyethylene terephthalate (PET) lidding films, drink pouches, foamed PET rigid rollstock and the Peel ReSeal lidding system for a variety of food and non-food applications. Each product is said to offer intuitive, easy-to-use features designed for consumption on the run and enhanced merchandising.

The products include:

SealChoice PET Lidding Films: Clear Lam's new PET Lidding Films, SP705 and SP707, designed to seal to APET (amorphous polyethylene terephthalate), rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) and CPET (crystallizable polyethylene terephthalate). Recommended applications include: SealChoice SP705 for snack kits, meal kits, produce, milk, lunch meat, and personal care items. SealChoice SP707 was developed for high pressure pasteurization processing (HPP) of premium food products, such as deli platters, dips, side dishes, and fresh fruits and vegetables.


Drink Pouches are rapidly replacing rigid containers for many food applications because of their lightweight structure and grab-and-go convenience. Designed to provide consumers with a resealable, portable package, Clear Lam's new packaging films absorb distribution abuse, seal through contamination, and feature superior graphics. These pouch stock flexible films have been used for a variety of dairy applications, including non-fat yogurt for adults and kids and a variety of Stonyfield yogurt pouches.


Peel & ReSeal Lidding Film: The growing demand for clear, convenient, tamper-evident and easy to open, multi-serve packaging drove Clear Lam's expansion of Peel ReSeal technology. Designed to replace rigid lids and shrink bands, this lidding film provides 30% or more weight savings, reducing fuel consumption and increasing cube utilization. The film is hermetically sealed to a rigid or semi-rigid tray and can extend shelf life when combined with micro perforation or modified atmosphere technology. This lidding is ideal for deli, bakery, confectionery, and produce packaging, as well as personal healthcare and industrial applications.


Foamed APET and rPET Rollstock: Clear Lam introduces new foamed APET and rPET rigid rollstock. The foamed materials are designed to reduce weight, add durable vertical strength and work with existing recycling programs. A variety of opaque and colored rollstocks are available. Product applications include: meat/seafood trays, produce containers, portion control cups, bakery containers, deli/cheese trays, and meal kits.
