Winpak’s Avenir heat-sealable lidding contains no foil, making it suitable for sealing to polypropylene and polystyrene containers. Benefits include suitability for foreign object detection in metal detection applications, high tear and puncture resistance, enhanced aesthetics and machine compatibility with other lidding materials, says the company. The lidding is resistant to curling, even when exposed to heat, and the lid dispenser can separate the lids for proper dispensing onto cups. A new embossing technique allows reliable separation and dispensing on packaging machines.
