What is Performance Packaging?

Plastics, unlike other materials, have been continuously evolving since their invention to meet the demanding requirements of food packaging. Today, modern polymers and processing technologies produce performance packaging to optimize food protection, convenience and efficiency.

The basic design of a multilayer film consists of a structure ranging from three to 12 layers formed by an outer layer of material that provides structural, thermal and printing properties, a central layer constituting the barrier layer, and an inner layer with good sealability.

Benefits of Performance Packaging

Longer shelf life

Today’s lifestyle demands convenience and time saving actions.

Flexibility and convenience

Today’s lifestyle demands convenience and time saving actions.
Less trips to the grocery store means more time for yourself.
Purchasing food online without the risk of packaging failure.
Portion control results in less left overs.

Hygiene and safety

Food products are exposed to a delicate process of storage, shipping, transport and delivery network. This heightens the risk of contamination to food products without packaging.

See, touch, select and consume food items without risk of contamintation.

Food items are protected when customers sneeze or cough around packed food.

Food protection against germs, dusts or the chaiser's hair strand.

How is it made?

It’s made of multiple thin transparent layers, each with unique properties and functionality.

Polyolefins

(PP, PE)
Water vapour barrier.
Flexibility.

Adhesive

Bonding polar &
non-polar material.

Polyamide

Mechanical performance
& flexibility.
Barrier for oxygen,
aroma & grease.
Transparency & printability.
Thermal resistance.

EVOH

High oxygen barrier.
Good aroma barrier.

Using these thin layers, each with specific characteristics, significantly increases shelf life and freshness of food by controlling the transmission rate of oxygen, carbon dioxide and moisture, while also improving the mechanical and physical properties of the film against puncture, tear and heat.

Why do we need packaging?

Food packaging is a protective barrier against environmental factors, such as microbial contamination, water vapour, oxygen, odorous substances or light.
