All about Vacuum Skin Packaging
Vacuum Skin Packaging is a highly efficient packaging film with excellent optical properties. It extends the shelf-life of fresh products like meat up to three weeks. Therefore, it reduces the food wastage from 12% to 3% for a beef sirloin steak. This is achieved among other functions by a high oxygen and moisture barrier.
Due to the attractive, clear packaging, customers can inspect and touch food products without spoiling them. The material usage is reduced compared to conventional Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP).
- Produced on TÜV certified energy efficient AQUAREX the VSP film offers the best optical presentation of fresh meat - like a second skin
- Studies show: VSP helps to reduce food wastage from 12% to 3% for a beef sirlion steak
- The amount of CO2 saved by avoiding food wastage is 10 times higher than the complete packaging process
As a competent partner for film manufacturers, Dow provides high-performance resins for vacuum skin packaging that fulfill all requirements of the end product. we know the application and can provide comprehensive advice. This VSP film provides good thermoforming and skin effect, enables exceptional seal integrity and improved liquid retention for better protection. It also allows for tamper-evident and easy open packaging. Good drawability results in an improved skin effect, further ensuring that VSP solutions have great shelf appeal.
Energy Sciences Inc. (ESI) is the world leader in Electron Beam (EB) systems and solutions for Flexible Packaging and Printing. EB Crosslinking of films is 100% recyclable and leads to improved elevated temperature resistance, improved puncture and impact resistance, better shrink ability, in addition to lowering costs on existing packaging lines by increasing line speeds and lowering defects.
