New anti-fog heat seal coatings are available for refrigeratable flexible packaging applications. Designed to improve package clarity and extend freshness for moisture-containing food products, the coatings reportedly allow converters and brand owners to address consumer preferences while streamlining processes and reducing overall costs.
Formulated to include both an anti-fog capability and heat seal functionality in one solution, the co-polyester coatings require one processing step. Available in both an extrudable grade (Vitel® 1922AF) and a solvent-based alternative, these coatings reportedly work with existing converting equipment and can accommodate various manufacturing needs.
“We wanted to formulate solutions that help converters to simplify the process of producing anti-fog lidding films while enabling them to meet the requirements of both brand owners and consumers,” said Deepa Puthanparambil, senior chemist for the global industrial adhesives business unit. “We are proud to say that our anti-fog heat seal coatings address needs across the entire value chain and fulfill an otherwise unmet need in the market.”
