Klöckner Pentaplast unveils BPET films for frozen foods

Klöckner Pentaplast has expanded one of its films product line to boost processing efficiency for frozen food applications.

The Pentafood BPET films are engineered with enhanced production efficiency for thermoforming, better cutting, and no brittleness, said the firm.

They are designed to be used in conditions as low as -20° C, which makes them perfect for frozen food applications and ideal for deep-draw, tray, and blister thermoformed applications.

BPET is the company’s registered trademark for the product, which is a rigid polyester based film.

Thermoforming and sealing properties provide efficient production processes with lower thermoforming temperature for energy savings to deliver energy and cost savings, said Klöckner Pentaplast.

Film options

Pentafood BPET films are offered in mono- and multi-layer structures of BPET, BPET/polyethylene (PE), and BPET/ ethylene vinyl-alcohol (EVOH)/PE, as well as BPET light films.

The films are offered in a range of standard opaque colours and are suitable for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP).

Pentafood BPET films run on standard thermoforming and form/fill/seal equipment, said the firm. Pentafood light BPET films are designed to be used in conditions as low as -40° C for frozen food applications.

They are available in mono- and multi-layer structures with PE and EVOH/PE.

The firm said depending on the requirements of food applications, mono and barrier film structures ensure shelf life and protect the product with moisture, gas and aroma barriers.

Light BPET films

Klöckner Pentaplast said the light BPET films reduce package weight and maintain physical properties comparable to standard materials, offering more than 30% density reduction compared to non-foamed PET products.

“Pentafood BPET films were developed to help meet customers’ needs for an APET film with enhanced processing efficiency,” said Gabriele Moesges-Haas, Klöckner Pentaplast’s packaging product manager for Europe.

“The expansion of our Pentafood food packaging film range to include these unique films continues to provide our customers with the broadest selection of high-performance films available in the global marketplace today.”

Klöckner Pentaplast group is a wholly owned by the Strategic Value Partners Investor Group, with sales of more than $1.56bn (€1.119bn) and employs more than 3,000 people worldwide.

The firm is a producer of films for pharmaceutical, food, electronics, and general-purpose thermoform packaging and has 18 current production operations in 12 countries.
