Brentwood IQF film seals fast and clean.

St. Louis, Mo., USA-based Brentwood Plastics, Inc. is marketing a specially formulated low-density polyethylene (LDPE) IQF food packaging film that seals at low temperatures and maximum form/fill/seal speeds--even when exterior contaminants such as blood, fats and ice are present. It is said to effectively eliminate channel leaks when used as a monolayer package or as a sealing layer in laminated stand-up pouches, and initiates at just 116[degrees]C (240[degrees]F).

The film is a blend of metallocenes formulated for superior pliability and strength compared to EVA in quick frozen food applications, often permitting down-gauging for cost savings and sustainability requirements. Tough and durable, with an Elmendorf 2-mil tear value of 250 grams and tensile-elongation of 510% at break, the IQF film is available in thicknesses of 1.25 to five mils, and can be corona treated for printing with water- or solvent-based inks.
