Traditionally, puncture-resistant patches are applied to the standard shrink bag, so that sharp, protruding bones won't puncture the bag and break the hermetic seal, which could compromise the safety and shelf life of the meat. This however can be a time-consuming process that's often less than accurate in a fast-paced meat-packing plant. Unlike patch bags or wraps that use bone caps, Austlon-BD packs don't need to be oriented so that a patch or film lamination layer covers the bone protruding from the meat.
Austlon-BD bags allow consumers to easily see the meat and can reduce in-plant leaker rates by more than 50 percent, compared with conventional patch bags. They're said to help keep packaging costs low and have oxygen and moisture barrier protection to extend meat shelf life. They're also glass-clear and can be used with existing packaging equipment.
The result of proprietary coextrusion technology and new polymeric, raw materials from partner suppliers, the BD bags also exhibit outstanding shrink properties and stiffness that allow them to lay flat across a seal bar and seal with fewer pleats.
