Toray Lidding Films Have Environmental Benefits


NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI | Toray Plastics (America) announces LumiLid bio-based, dual-ovenable lidding films manufactured with company’s proprietary sustainable resin blends, which are made with more than 50% renewable feedstocks. 

Company says the films were created to lessen the impact on the environment, as they use fewer petroleum resources while they are being manufactured, and to meet the needs of environment-conscious end-users and consumers. Like all LumiLid films, these are solvent-free and may alleviate end-users' concerns about solvent retention, as well as enhance the films' sustainability profile.

The new LumiLid films are designed for frozen, wet and dry food, and dairy applications. They are FDA-compliant for use with oven temperatures to 400 deg F for 30 min. LumiLid films are also Interstate Milk Shippers (IMS)-certified, so they offer another level of assurance for dairy customers.

"The next generation of innovative, bio-based film technology has arrived," says Milan Moscaritolo, ( senior director of sales and marketing, Toray Plastics (America). "The option to choose a bio-based lidding film that has so many advanced features and such high-performance capability presents a unique opportunity to end users and converters."

LumiLid bio-based films are said to have the same high performance qualities that are characteristic of the LumiLid brand, including a low seal initiation (SIT), broad seal range, outstanding seal integrity, and an easy peel. They are available in clear, white, and metallized formats.
