Product information

Skin films are an ideal application for meat or seafood packaging, allowing the product to be clearly seen by the consumer for ease of choice. The product rests on a piece of paperboard or preformed tray and is covered by a thin film of transparent sheet film.

The skin film is softened by heat and draped over the product on the card or tray, bonding to the heat-seal coating. Vacuum can be used to create a firm fit over the product.

Although this product resembles a blister pack, the plastic cover is formed over the product on the line rather than using a pre-formed packaging, allowing consumers clear choice.
