Klöckner Pentaplast’s new Pentafood BPET films offer esthetic appeal and can be used in temperatures as low as -40˚C


Montabaur, Germany – The Klöckner Pentaplast Group has has extended its Pentafood film product line to include Pentafood BPET films.

The company says the Pentafood BPET films are designed to be used at temperatures as low as -20˚ Celsius, which makes them ideal for frozen food applications.

The films are ideal for deep-draw, tray and blister thermoformed applications, and are offered in mono- and multi-layer structures of BPET, BPET/PE, and BPET/EVOH/PE, as well as BPET light films.

Pentafood BPET films have outstanding sealing properties and multiple sealant options, such as permanent or easy-peel seals.

The films are offered in a broad range of standard opaque colours and are suitable for modified atmosphere packaging.

The company says the Pentafood light BPET films can reduce package weight and maintain physical properties comparable to standard materials. These films can offer greater than 30 per cent density reduction compared to non-foamed PET products.

Pentafood light BPET films are designed to be used in conditions as low as -40˚ Celsius for frozen food applications. As with standard Pentafood BPET® films, they offer high production efficiency, superior formability, and cost savings. Pentafood light BPET films are available in mono- and multi-layer structures with PE and EVOH/PE.
