FLEXICON: Peelable Lid Stock
Flexicon, an Ampac company, has announced the launch of Flexi 6818, a peelable lid stock for thermoformed PET trays. The Flexi 6818 lamination features high-seal coated polyester coupled with metalized, white-oriented polypropylene. In addition to good barrier properties, the new film offers several advantages to competitive lamination in the marketplace, most notably its ability to produce two-sided prints. The company can print 10-color process jobs using the latest state-of-the-art impression drum press. The front side can be used for high-end consumer graphics while the backside features print that can be held in register with the front-side artwork. This is possible because the company has successfully tackled the reregistering challenge that has eluded most U.S. converters.
