CHADWICKS of Bury , a leading UK producer of die-cut lidding primarily for the food and beverage industries, has added clear polyester to its range of die-cut membranes.
Chadwick’s Australasia manager John Savage said co-extruded clear polyester was initially developed to meet customers’ requirements - seeing their product through the membrane which greatly increased the overall presentation of the pack.
“Clear polyester can also be printed to the same high standard as other variants. Normally our customer's like to add their own logo which will re-enforce the branding,” he added.
Another advantage with Chadwick's polyester is its ink lift resistance. Ink lift is a problem with some other polyester membranes that can be found in the market.
Irrespective of the variation, Chadwick's polyester can be used in microwave applications, has improved graphics over foil, and provides customers with the ability to metal detect following sealing.
