FlexiTuff™ 18 is a one-layer film that uses linear-low density polyethylene to form a non-barrier film that provides strong seals and performance in hot-fill and aseptic applications.
Fills heated, commercially-sterile product in non-sterile packaging. Can reduce product taste and texture.
Uses cold temperatures to kill bacteria. Must be kept cold throughout life of product.
Uses UV, laminar flow, and/or hydrogen peroxide to achieve high sterility levels for short shelf-life products.
Fills commercially-sterilized products into pre-sterilized packaging. Products can be held unopened without refrigeration.
Yes - Surface Print
Complies with USFDA and EU food contact regulations.
