Curwood Intros Next-Gen Peel-Reseal Tech For Trays & Lids

Processors looking for the latest in reclosable tray and lid packaging will find it in an advanced new solution from Curwood with the new EZ Peel/Reseal lidstock for semi-rigid or rigid trays that offer superior re-tack for multiple closures and the added benefits of enhanced sustainability, shelf life, shelf impact and productivity.

The resealable system is ideal for multi-serving foods like sliced meats and cheeses, as well as for multi-packs of consumer goods like razors and batteries.

New EZ Peel/Reseal lidstock features a proprietary resealable pressure-sensitive adhesive layer engineered within the film. This allows the film itself to be fusion sealed to the tray even through contamination, creating a hermetic package with superior barrier.

The pressure-sensitive layer is then exposed when the lidstock is peeled back, creating exceptional resealability for multiple re-tacks with only fingertip pressure.

Lidstock is printable in up to 10 colors to create an outstanding billboard effect. Superior clarity highlights the quality of the products inside, with anti-fog and anti-grease features available to maintain clarity throughout the distribution cycle. The rigid packaging material is available as rollstock or pre-made trays, in clear, pigmented or custom colors to create a unique brand look.

From a production standpoint, new EZ Peel/Reseal film’s peelability and resealability are independent of seal temperature, pressure or dwell time, allowing faster line speeds and fewer rejects. New EZ Peel/Reseal films can be run on existing equipment, typically with minimal machine modifications.
