SUKANO® Antifogging Compound for cold food contact PET packaging
Fogging, or the undesired formation of small water droplets on the surface of films, is a common problem when packing moisture-containing products such as fruit, vegetables, or meat in a tight container.
This condensation not only makes packed food look less fresh and less attractive, but sensitive applications can even be damaged or have their shelf-life reduced due to the presence of water droplets.
Oriented polyester film converters and thermoformers can now rely on an innovative Antifogging Compound that offers durable, transparent, and homogeneous performance for direct food contact PET packaging.
The SUKANO® Antifogging Compound ensures easy handling without needing to invest in any additional machinery and eliminates the need for secondary processing steps, such as coatings.
