All you need to know about lidding film

For over ten years FPS has been helping customers across the world to identify and create the most effective lidding solutions to meet individual packaging needs. Used in a wide range of retail, supermarket and bulk packed tray products, lidding film technology has developed a great deal in recent years, with FPS constantly seeking new and innovative ways to satisfy the most challenging of lidding requirements.

Our current range of lidding films offer a number of distinct advantages, including:

  • Cost savings – up to 20% saving in tray costs, with removal of rigid lid
  • Easy first opening
  • Superior reclosing / resealing functionality
  • High shrinkage effect
  • Anti-fog
  • High moisture barrier
  • Product waste reduction

Designed with the essential strength, peelability, puncture resistance and barrier properties required to maintain peak product freshness; our high quality 8-colour printed films provide great shelf presence and extended shelf life for a variety of ‘easy peel’ or ‘weld seal’ applications. We have years of experience matching the correct film type with a particular tray material and offer lidding film solutions for a wide range of tray types, including PP, PET, PVC, PS and foil. We can also match your lidding requirements with thermoform, semi-rigid bottom web films.

Complementing established monolayer and laminate solutions for lidding we now offer lidding film for re-closing mono-material trays. European sourced, this film offers optimum machinability and superior reclosing, which is suitable for packaging cheese, meat, ready meals, snacks and confectionary.

So whether you’re after anti-fog lidding films for fresh meat or an effective lidding solution for heat-sensitive products, FPS has the answer.
