Allegro® M's sealing properties help the lidding structures stand up to transport challenges, thereby minimizing the chance of compromise. Allegro® M's "no residue" clean peel offers a positive visual aesthetic. Additionally, it has a good thermal and dimensional stability and it is also suitable for radiation sterilization.
