Ampac Has New Anti-Fog Technology

CINCINNATI, OH | Ampac, a division of ProAmpac, has engineered what it says is an improved anti-fog technology for film used in fresh produce packaging. 

Ampac has been a long-time supplier of surface-printed anti-fog OPP film with controlled perforation for vegetables. Company says that, from a market need and through the efforts of a strong technical team, it has developed coated films with superior anti-fog properties that help prevent condensation for heat-sealable films. Unlike other technologies, the new anti-fog coating technology reportedly has excellent seal and hot tack properties and does not impact the coefficient of friction (COF) of the films, while providing improved transparency for fresh produce.

In addition, the features and performance of the anti-fog coating works in conjunction with tailored perforations in the film to control the respiration rate of different vegetables. This is said to create a unique combination for grocers requiring improved properties for produce packaging. The anti-fog coating is exceptional for bag and lidding applications, company adds, and is also FDA approved for microwave applications.

Says Dr. Hesam Tabatabaei, ProAmpac’s director of Research, Innovation and Technology, “Our new anti-fog technology offers improved clarity with technical advances that improve line efficiencies on form/fill/seal packaging machines. The improved clarity helps drive sales of fresh produce by highlighting the freshness of the product. We’re excited to add this new anti-fog technology to ProAmpac’s broad portfolio of innovative flexible packaging solutions.”
