Americas: Toray Plastics unveils bio-based lidding films


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

The bio-based films were created to lessen the impact on the environment, while using fewer petroleum resources during manufacturing, and to meet the needs of environment-conscious end users and consumers.

In addition, 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 films are designed for frozen, wet and dry food, and dairy applications.

They are Food and Drug Administration-compliant for use with oven temperatures of up to 400°F for 30 minutes.

The Interstate Milk Shippers-certified films a low seal initiation, broad seal range, seal integrity, and an easy peel.

They are available in clear, white, and metallized formats.
