Specific applications for FRESH+ 1032 AF (1001032-E) include grocery packaging for washed, pre-cut and ready-to-eat vegetables and fruits. In this type of packaging, fog and water droplets can form on interior surfaces, affecting shelf appeal and produce shelf life. FRESH+ 1032 AF (1001032-E) provides an attractive shelf appearance while offering excellent machinability, including a low coefficient of friction, for the manufacturing of form, fill and seal packaging.
In addition, the anti-fog benefits of FRESH+ 1032 AF (1001032-E) are ideal for lidding applications.
Ampacet’s FRESH+ 1032 AF (1001032-E) demonstrates excellent anti-fog performance in barrier and non-barrier single wrap films as well as in laminated film structures. It provides outstanding slip properties (COF < 0.25) without the use of a migrating slip additive.
