Multi-layer rigid films


A multi-layer rigid film, comprising more than one polymer mix, offers high-end sealability in the finished packaging. This helps to increase the protective barrier for some products, giving them a longer shelf-life.

ReClose

kp® ReClose

Tray2Tray
kp® ReClose is our range of multilayer PET rigid films for form, fill and seal and thermoforming food applications, like sliced cheese, that require a peel and reseal solution for improved consumer convenience and food waste prevention. It’s an easy drop-in solution for PET form, fill and seal and thermoforming lines that is compatible with standard lock seal PE top lidding films.

Lower eco and national plastic taxes

Made with up to 75% post-consumer recycled PET, with almost half (33%) coming from food trays (kp Tray2Tray®). This can result in lower eco and national plastic taxes in countries (eg France, Spain and United Kingdom), where the use of PCR PET from bottles and/or food trays is incentivised.


Allows for a reduction in packaging weight up to 12.5%

kp® ReClose combined with lock seal PE top lidding films, such as kp FlexiLid® EH 373, allows you to reduce your packaging weight by as much as 12.5% compared to a combination of lock seal PET rigid films and reclosable PE top lidding films.


Consumer friendly packaging

Designed to be easy to peel and reseal up to 20 times when the packaging sealing surface has a width of 5 mm or higher.

Drop-in solution

An easy drop-in solution that works with all standard PET thermoforming and form, fill and seal equipment, with no need to change or retrofit existing equipment.

Secure Icon


Secure and leak proof

The protection and safety of food contents are ensured by a best-in-class hermetic seal even through contamination and by full compliance with EFSA and FDA food contact regulations.


Lower carbon footprint

Has a lower carbon footprint thanks to the use of up to 12.5% less plastic when compared with alternative packaging.

kp® ReClose is perfect for:

pentafood-kpseal

Pentafood kpseal

kpseal has enhanced sealability that works through contamination, reducing the need for reworking of packs during thermoforming and the form, fill and seal process. This rigid film is available in custom colour options and can run on standard thermoforming and form, fill and seal machinery. kpseal is highly suited for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum skin packaging (VSP) for fresh food products that require extended shelf-life.

Applications

Meat, fish and poultry, cheeses, bakery, pizza, fresh pasta, snacks and snack portions

Benefits

Enhanced sealability, good thermoforming properties and available in custom colours

Polymers

PET, Vinyl, PP and PS

pentafood-kpbar

Pentafood kpbar

kpbar has similar benefits and qualities as kpseal, however this rigid film is a mono (single) polymer film which has an ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) layer laminated onto it. The EVOH layer extends the barrier quality of the packaged product by restricting the amount of oxygen transmission rate into the pack, reducing odour and gas leakage, perfect for products that are affected by gas rates like fresh red meat. kpbar ensures you have great shelf appeal in crystal clear options or a number of colours to suit your requirements. It also runs on standard thermoforming or form, fill and seal machinery. This range of rigid films are also highly suited to modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum skin packaging (VSP).

Applications

Meat, fish and poultry, cheeses, bakery, pizza, fresh pasta, snacks and snack portions

Benefits

Excellent sealability, high barrier, consumer appeal, extended shelf life, good thermoforming properties, seals through contamination and comes in a range of colours.
