Is PET packaging a “suitable choice for the future”?

Is PET packaging a “suitable choice for the future”?

 

Absolutely, its environmental advantage is one of the pillars of Circular Economy.

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is perfect for food packaging because it is inert, this means it has no interaction with what it comes into contact with. It is able to create a barrier for oxygen and water, it can be easily shaped and it is highly resistant and very light. For this reason, it is the ideal material for the production of Trays, Film Reels and Lids.

Furthermore, It is environmental recyclable. Its disposal is extremely important: more it is recycled and less they need to produce new one, reducing the environmental impact.

For this reason in Compac, we have chosen PET for the design of several Food Packaging Solutions.

PET: Functional performance throughout its life cycle

In Compac, we have integrated two main themes in Food Packaging Systems for the production of our PET Packaging:

  • ENVIRONMENT Trays and Film reelsCOMPLETE PACKAGES – based on the Plastic Material PET that fully corresponds to the requirements of the CIRCULAR ECONOMY. The Packages show the indications of Composition and Disposal as required by the Law on Environmental Labeling of packaging. The RECYCLING chain is perfectly integrated, from COLLECTION to its REUSE.

  • SIMPLIFICATIONPET, combined with CPET and CA + PET (all with APET sealing layer), allows to simplify the management of Materials of COMPAC System and leads to significant advantages:
For the Purchasing Manager
  • Versatile, ready-to-use multi-format system, easy and quick to install and service;
  • Each container, with a sealing layer in APET, produced in the same dimensions as the housings of the heat-sealing machines, thanks to the high standardization allows to reduce references to managed in the warehouse.
  • Heat sealable films with a transparent, clean, clear (free from condensation) surface of the package, ideal for refrigerated counters and thus to improve the presentation of the product;
  • The Packages show the Composition and Disposal indications as required by the Law on Environmental Labeling of Packaging.
For the Counter Operator

Single transparent heat-sealing film with a single temperature and a single sealing time on the various models of heat-sealing machines with trays in:

  • APET (POLYETHYLENTEREPHTHALATE) for cold delicatessen / delicatessen / fruit and vegetable foods;
  • CPET (CRYSTALLIZED POLYETHYLENTEREPHTHALATE) for gastronomy foods to be heated or cooked;
  • CARDBOARD + PET (CA+PET) for gastronomy food to be heated or cooked.
For the Customer / Consumer
  • Impact-resistant trays that thanks to the hermetic seal guarantee the integrity of the food product during transport from the store to the house. In addition, the hermetic closure acts as a guarantee seal and reports any opening of the package;
  • Trays offer many use features: heating, cooking, refrigeration and freezing;
  • The Packages show the Composition and Disposal indications as required by the Law on Environmental Labeling of packaging in full respect of the environment.

THE ADVANTAGES

In addition to the benefits of the heat-sealed packaging (guarantee seal / airtightness):

  • Food product enhancement for better presentation – instructions for use and disposal are printed on the sidewalls and on the bottom of the tray;
  • Freezing – withstands temperatures down to -40 ° C without any possibility of breakage;
  • Resistance – the high elasticity makes them safe from the danger of breaking during handling or transport. They can be considered a natural insulator, as they keep food warm longer out of the oven, freezer to oven and then on to the table. They keep their original shape even after thermal stress;
  • Recyclable – Recyclable with plastic.

THE ADVANTAGES

In addition to the benefits of the heat-sealed packaging (guarantee seal / airtightness):

  • Food product enhancement for better presentation – instructions for use and disposal are printed on the sidewalls and on the bottom of the tray;
  • Freezing – withstands temperatures down to -40 ° C without any possibility of breakage;
  • Heating – they can be taken from the freezer, placed directly in a traditional oven (up to + 180° C for 30 minutes) or microwaves (up to 800W for 5 minutes), and thus obtain the optimal heating of food;
  • Cooking – they make it possible to pack READY TO COOK for subsequent cooking by the consumer in a traditional oven up to +180°C for 30 minutes;
  • Resistance – the high elasticity makes them safe from the danger of breaking during handling or transport. They can be considered a natural insulator, as they keep food warm longer out of the oven, freezer to oven and then on to the table. They keep their original shape even after thermal stress;
  • Recyclable – Recyclable with Plastic.

THE ADVANTAGES of TRANSPARENT FILM REELS:

  • TSB – strong seal, can be used down to – 40 °C, if perforated it can be used in a microwave oven and traditional oven in combination with CPET / CA + PET trays;
  • TSBAF – strong seal, anti-fog, can be used down to – 40 ° C, if perforated it can be used in a microwave oven and traditional oven in combination with CPET / CA + PET trays;
  • TSPBAF + Film Sheets – strong seal + peelable, anti-fog, can be used down to – 40 °C and  in a microwave oven and traditional oven without being pierced in combination with CPET / CA + PET trays. During the heating / cooking, the steam vents from the package, and subsequently the opening of the package is getting easier thanks to the film becoming peelable;
  • TPBHAF – peelable, anti-fog, can be used down to – 40 °C and  in a microwave oven without being pierced in combination with CPET / CA + PET trays. During the heating, the steam vents from the package and subsequently the opening of the package has already taken place;
  • TARBAF – resealable, anti-fog, can be used down to -40°C. It is ideal for storing and protecting food after opening the package.
