Camvac relaunches premium lidding film range with exclusive new features

Camvac Ltd, pioneer in transparent barrier films and laminates, has relaunched a range of market-leading AlOx barrier lidding film solutions: Camclear, Extrapet, and Extrapet PCR. Camclear is a chlorine free, EVOH alternative barrier coating, available in a wide range of single-web substrates, including polyester, polyethene and polypropylene in thickness from 12µm. Camclear features exceedingly high barrier performance, both OTR and MVTR, which is critical for MAP/CAP packaging. Extrapet and Extrapet PCR are all polyester barrier lidding film solutions. Available with weld or peelable seal options, the premium grade polyester will heat seal through contamination, preventing leaks and food waste. The Extrapet range includes retort films, also in weld and peelable grades, that have been specifically developed to withstand the high temperatures during a retort sterilisation process. Camvac’s in-house antifog coating offers superior clarity which ensures excellent light transmission and low haze values. Extrapet PCR also supports improved sustainability with over 30% Post-Consumer Recycled content – which ensures it falls outside of the UK Plastic Packaging Tax criteria. Camvac uses the highest-grade raw materials to create top-quality, highly engineered lidding films and laminates which surpass customers’ needs. They are highly print receptive and provide best-in-class protection for fresh meat, fish, pork, beef mince, processed meats, cheese, pasta, vegetables and bakery products. Camvac’s barrier lidding film solutions are perfect for converting applications, ensuring extended product shelf-life - and they are microwavable and oven-ready. Camvac is uniquely placed within the films and laminates industry as an independent company. It can maximise its purchasing power and product optimisation as it works with whichever supplier can provide the best solution. As a result the relaunched films are available in an unheard-of range of widths – from 30mm to 2100mm.
