Pactiv Corporation offers microfoam polypropylene (PP) foam under the brand name microfoam XFS as a protective packaging for food applications. Microfoam XFS is compliant with FDA regulations for all food applications, under all conditions at temperatures not exceeding 250º F.
The PP foam’s high coefficient of friction makes it possible for it to immobilize food items and prevent abrasion/bruising in a variety of applications such as produce, meat, poultry, prepared foods etc. Specific food examples include protecting cut fruit from roller abrasion, minimizing breakage for fragile taco shells and top/bottom pads for produce cases. Its minimal absorption properties make it resistant to staining and mold/mildew growth. Microfoam XFS comes in sheets and is perforated in a variety of sizes.
