Uniflex tray lidding films

Uniflex manufactures flexo printed films for sealing of thermoforming and ready-made PP and PE trays. Our laminated lidding films are suitable for the packaging in vacuum and modified atmosphere (MAP).

For PE trays we recommend using material composite PET+PE. For PP trays it is optimal to use PET+PP or PET+PE. Depending on the product type and required barrier properties, the thickness of the PE layer is 40-90 µm, and PET layer thickness is 12-23 µm.

We use additional EVOH layer in case you need films with high barrier properties. A PE film with EVOH grades provides the high barrier to gas and water vapour permeability which is essential for the shelf life extension of perishable products.
