National Flexible Engages In Germ Warfare

National Flexible, the film packaging specialists, have expanded their portfolio of films to include a new material that directly addresses recent health-scare problems facing the food industry.

 The new anti-bacterial film makes use of silver ion technology as a way of inhibiting bacterial and microbial activity on the surface of the film. Just like the ‘well known brand of bleach’ the film is effective in eliminating 99.9% of bacteria on packed product in contact with the film.

 

This includes effectively attacking the Staphylococcus bacteria as well as Escherichia Coli (E.coli) which was at the source of recent food poisoning outbreaks and has potentially cost the food industry millions through lost confidence as end consumers seek assurances about food safety.

 The film’s performance has been independently tested under ISO:22196 and meets approval for direct food contact. It can be applied in a variety of packaging formats for products such as fresh and prepared produce where its unique properties potentially offer extended shelf life. Extra anti-fog properties can be added to the film if required.

 The film is identical in performance and appearance to standard BOPP films and can be used on existing packing lines without any modification to the machinery.

 National Flexible are theUK’s largest distributor of polypropylene, laminates and special films. Their custom factory is purpose built to be compliant with the latest BRC standards for food-grade packaging, and they have become well known as an innovator in the field of packaging films for the food, bakery, snack, confectionery and contract packing industries.
