Sealed Air’s Cryovac Food Solutions has introduced a breathable, high-abuse shrink lidding film that is fully co-extruded, multi-layered and heat-sealable, allowing for superior merchandising appeal and product freshness.

Ideally suited for permeable tray lidding applications, the new Cryovac PermeLid film is perfect for packaging fresh poultry or frozen applications where retail-grade anti-fog performance is paramount.

Cryovac PermeLid film shares all the positive attributes of the company’s market-leading LID1050 shrink lidding film. Its special shrink properties result in a tight, wrinkle-free pack. High-gloss and anti-fog properties accentuate trap-printed graphics and ensure a natural presentation with complete product visibility.

"Consumers prefer to see the product they are purchasing," says Jim Belcher, marketing director of case ready products for Sealed Air’s Cryovac Food Solutions. “Our PermeLid film is the first breathable lidding film of its kind that allows processors to provide this type of merchandising appeal to consumers.”

Cryovac PermeLid film is designed to run on standard tray/lid equipment. The film’s excellent heat-sealing performance produces packs with airtight and leak-proof seals around the lip of the tray. Its abuse resistance allows safe consumer handling, while its light gauge contributes to environmental impact reduction.
