Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is a technique used for prolonging the shelf-life of fresh or minimally processed foods.
Made using latest European technology, the 25um Austlon-FA lidding film ensures wrinkle free presentation for your products.
Suitable for both premade and in-line traysealers, its wide sealing temperature range, means it can run on multiple machinery and tray types.
Great antifog function and glossy appearance.
MAP tray lidding film technical specification
AUSTLON-FA is a 25um shrink lidding film for MAP case ready applications. Due to its wide sealing range and possibility, it can seal directly to both PP (easy peel effect) and PE (lock seal), and is suitable for both rigid and semi-rigid tray applications.
• Flat Width: 300-640mm
• Packaging: 1600m/roll
• Thickness: 25um
As material and structure of shrink films may differ between suppliers, it is sometimes necessary to adjust machine settings for optimal performance. We recommend the following for Austlon-FA:
Recommended sealing temp
140-150°C, 1s, 0.4MPa
165-175°C, 1s, 0.4MPa
SEALS DIRECTLY ONTO PP TRAYS!
Traditional Lidding Film: Tray is laminated with film layer for high barrier, but also for sealing to top filmNew Austlon-FA: Use special materials so it seals DIRECTLY onto PP trays
What is a Good MAP Lidding Film
Note: Antifog effect takes time to come into effect. Initially there will be a thin layer of water droplets being formed, which will transform into a layer of large water droplets and eventually all these will clear up to form a clear film. Everytime there is temperature fluctuations, the cycle will start again, so please ensure temperature variations are kept to a minimum.
