Contamination at the packaging manufacturing stage is frequently overlooked because when it comes to food safety, we usually place the importance on the preparation of the food itself.

However, food packaging is a critical component of the complete manufacturing process. Packaging, and especially the food packaging equipment used in the manufacturing process, plays an important role in ensuring that the final product is suitable for consumption.

There are various different types of food packaging containers such as Composite Container & Lidding Material For PP Pet Tray etc. Each has a unique design to successfully protect the product.

In this article, we’ll discuss about the lidding film, its distinctive traits, and its applications.

What Is Lidding Film?

Lidding is commonly used as a closure on plastic bowls, cups, or trays that hold products such as yogurt, soup, cheese, meats, and numerous other food products. Lidding is usually made a laminated construction, made up of foil, paper, polyester, PET, or all other types of metalized and non-metalized materials that make up the film.

The film is specially designed for peeling without shredding. It maintains a strong grip and tight seal for an extended shelf-life.

Typical Attributes Of Lidding Film:

  • Peelable
  • Microwave Safe
  • Anti-Fog
  • Freezer Safe
  • Self-Venting
  • Grease & Oil Resistant
  • Printable
  • High Barrier

Three of these qualities are very important. When it comes to lidding film, you want your package to be peelable, temperature resistant, as well as anti-fog.

Here’s why:

#1: Peelable

Food manufacturers want to provide their customers convenience; in fact, they want their products to be user-friendly. Packaging companies know how to create a lidding film with just the correct peel strength to make the product easy to open while still keeping the product secure and protected in a sturdy package.

#2: Temperature Resistant

These packages often hold foods such as frozen, pre-cooked meals. These products should be kept frozen before eating because cold temperatures keep harmful bacteria from growing and multiplying. To keep the food safe, refrigerators should be set no more than 40 degrees Fahrenheit & freezers set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. To make the meals edible, many consumers heat the food up in the microwave. Therefore, the packaging requires staying secure in a extensive range of temperatures.

#3: Anti-Fog

Consumers want to know what they are about to eat. Food manufacturers do not want transparent parts of the lidding film to become foggy when the contents are moist.

Packaging is very important to selling a food product & keeping that product safe for consumption. When choosing a packaging type for your product, remain the lidding film in mind for all of its useful attributes.
