First Glance


Looking Good on Two Sides
Flexicon, Cary, IL, an Ampac co., announces Flexi 6818 peelable lidstock for thermoformed PET trays.

The lamination features heat-seal coated polyester coupled with metallized, white OPP. The film is said to offer good barrier properties as well as other advantages.

The company says its ability to produce two-sided printing allows the outer facing to be printed with esthetically pleasing graphics for shelf impact, while the reverse side can offer secondary copy. Flexicon says it can produce the lamination with 100% opacity, and the copy on the reverse side will not show through the front facing (or vice versa).

The material can be sealed around the face of the tray, leaving a corner exposed to grab and pull for easy product access. Reported to be an ideal lidstock for consumer goods and solid or semi-solid products such as food items, room fresheners, etc.
