Original Press Release:
New CPPeel Lidding Film – A Better Alternative to Aluminum
Profol introduces the new CPPeel® family of lidding solutions. This new film gives manufacturers a better option for sealing, protecting and marketing food products. CPPeel is made with polypropylene resins in a cast film process – and is an alternative to lidding films containing aluminum, metallized PET or paper/PE lids. Our sealant layer is designed to be universal and will seal to a wide range of materials including polypropylene, polystyrene and PET.
CPPeel does not react with lactic acid, is solvent-free and generally more neutral towards packaged food. It is suitable for peelable lidding applications such as yogurt, cream cheese, instant soups, margarine, desserts, salads, sour cream or whipped cream. It can even be used with corrosive foods such as paprika or tomato spreads.
CPPeel lids can be heat-sealed to food containers without applying solvent-based heat-sealing lacquers and do not need to be embossed after printing. The production of CPPeel requires 90% less energy to manufacture compared to aluminum alternatives. The sealing temperature is approximately 100°C (212°F) lower, allowing for additional energy savings during application.
Colors appear crisper and brighter on CPPeel lids thanks to the film’s white base, boosting the packaged product’s appeal on the refrigerated supermarket shelf and grabbing the shopper’s attention.
Damaged closures and leaked food contents are a thing of the past. CPPeel lids adhere tightly to the rims of food containers and have a high puncture resistance. Lids stay on, but consumers also appreciate how CPPeel lids peel off containers smoothly and residual-free.
In contrast to existing aluminum/PP laminate lidding films, where aluminum residues on the sealing edge prevent the cup from being recycled, a polypropylene cup sealed with CPPeel is 100% recyclable.
Brand owners value the ability to use metal detectors on products sealed with CPPeel, which gives their customers more security. CPPeel meets all food safety regulations and requirements.
