VAW Flexible packaging opens up new applications. (Packaging & Equipment).

A new sealing system for PET bottles is under development by the Societe, Alsacienne d'Aluminium (SAA), part of VAW's Flexible Packaging Business segment. The basis of the new application lies in the peelable foil laminate system TOP PEEL.

It is already in use as a sealing material for HDPE bottles or containers, mainly in the dairy product applications with the main advantage being ease of peeling. It is suitable for milk bottle capping to lidding systems for drinking yoghurt and yoghurt and can be used with all types of milk (sterilised, UHT, and fresh). TOP PEEL fits in with today's lifestyle where consumers are opting for snacks and individual portions.

The packaging system can now -- with a different material mixture -- be adopted for use on PET bottles in the dairy and food drinking products sector. The material can be supplied in reels, as flat pre-cut lids or recessed lids.
