A Fresh Take on Protein Packaging

Klöckner Pentaplast introduce Sustainable Solutions at IPPE in Atlanta Gordonsville, VA – 11th February 2019 - Join Klöckner Pentaplast (kp) at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, GA this February 12 – 14 at the Georgia World Congress Center. kp Food & Consumer Products will be introducing the new Evolve S and Elite® recyclable packaging solutions with a team of experts on-hand to discuss your packaging needs.

The new Evolve S tray and film delivers significant improvement in vacuum skinning cycle times over standard Vacuum Skin Packaging (VSP) trays while also increasing shelf life – an added bonus for a tray already made from up to 95% recycled post-consumer rPET.

Designed for rPET or PET applications and featuring a peelable top film, Evolve S is the product of a collaboration between Klöckner Pentaplast and their partners, Proseal. This marrying of minds has resulted in a sustainable solution which not only increases packing line speeds but reduces unit costs through increased line output.

Find the range of solutions at kp’s booth (8368) at IPPE to get the rundown on the tray and film, before visiting the Proseal booth (6945) to see how the process works on their equipment with a live demo.

kp Food & Consumer Packaging will also show the award-winning Elite protein tray and film, a unique recyclable MAP solution. Elite seals through contamination, reduces rework, repacking and leaker rates, as well as reducing sealing time and temperature. This impressive protein packaging solution is made from up to 95% recycled PET content and is a mono material which means it is fully recyclable.
