Sudpack Showcases a Variety of Innovations in Its Anniversary Year

Products combine safety, sustainability and convenience (November 2-5, 2014, Chicago, Illinois USA, In-Line Booth No. E-8856)

Chicago, Illinois – Celebrating the group's 50th anniversary, Südpack Verpackungen GmbH Co. KG presents a new dimension of film at this year's Pack Expo International in Chicago. The company also showcases high-performance films designed for secure sealing even with contaminated seams, and films that fit the product like a second skin. One of this year's highlights is a new member of the resealable family Multipeel: Multipeel on Mono APET.

High-performance films from Southern Germany

The films of Germany-based packaging expert Südpack achieve the highest performance and reliability. Just like Südpack Managing Partner Johannes Remmele, the U.S. subsidiary also relies on unsurpassed form-fill-seal quality and "lives packaging every day".

Today, the Südpack Group is one of the industry's market and technology leaders, and ranges amongst Europe's top manufacturers of high barrier films. For 50 years, the packaging professionals have been placing special emphasis on the development of high-performance thin materials that help conserve natural resources, thus contributing to environmental protection. The film manufacturer's product portfolio ranges from multilayer hard and soft films to tubular bag films, top films, microwaveable convenience packaging solutions, and prefabricated bags.

With many years of experience and a long tradition in packaging development, manufacturing and finishing, Südpack is able to consistently optimize proven products and introduce new developments to the market. Visitors to Pack Expo will receive an overview of the portfolio that the U.S. subsidiary Südpack USA Inc. has in stock for the North American market.

Sealing layer expertise

The name SafePeel stands for top films for trays. Its special sealing medium works perfectly with contaminated seams. The packaging can be peeled open for maximum consumer comfort. SafePeel film is also characterized by excellent anti-fog properties, which prevents unsightly water drops.

Südpack also shows two new tray films to the trade show audience at Pack Expo International. SafePeel Hot and CanLid Peel offer outstanding sealing properties and are designed for use in ovens and microwaves. Thanks to excellent sealing properties, SafePeel Hot can be pasteurized and is ideal for convenience products. Polypropylene (PP) is used as a sealing medium in the tray and top film. SafePeel Hot is extremely durable and fulfills the highest safety requirements, even with multi-chamber trays.

Easy-to-use CanLid Peel top film for trays offers outstanding barrier properties and is extremely durable. The white top film offers the best possible visual cover, protects the packaged product from light and enables a wide variety of eye-catching designs to attract attention at point of sale. Both SafePeel Hot and CanLid Peel offer a long processing window and can be pasteurized to prevent germ formation, thus extending product shelf life.

Multi S V top film is another innovation from Südpack designed to completely seal the product. The top film tightly fits the product without changing its shape or form. Multi S V offers outstanding barrier properties and is puncture-resistant. At the same time, the film is highly transparent and offers a clear view of the product. Südpack supplies both the top film Multi S V and base films, which enables the company to perfectly match properties. Packages can be easily and smoothly opened without forming threads.

Expertise in resealable packaging

Südpack further presents a new development in its established Multipeel series: Multipeel on Mono APET. The resealable film can be processed on all thermoforming machines and is particularly tear-resistant. Multipeel on Mono APET is easy to reseal thanks to its very rigid material. At the same time, the top and base films are extremely thin, which saves weight and storage space while providing the accustomed protection for packaged goods and efficient handling, for instance during roll changes. The barrier properties of Multipeel on Mono APET can be flexibly adapted to meet the requirements of the packaged goods. This extends their shelf life and facilitates optimal gas exchange, especially for cheese products. The packaging is persuasive at point of sale thanks to its brilliant shine and clear view of the product inside. Packaging solutions with Multipeel on Mono APET use far less material and are especially suitable for manufacturers that support eco sustainability. The amount of material in the overall packaging can be reduced by up to 20 percent without sacrificing product protection.
