Skin film, is a type of packaging material. Skin pack is a method of packaging where a product is placed on a backing card or a tray, and a transparent film is heated and draped over the product and card/tray, following tightly to the shape of the product. The film is then sealed to the card or tray, creating a secure and see-through package.
We make skin pack films from a combination of plastic materials, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), or polypropylene (PP). These films are chosen for their clarity, strength, and ability to conform to the shape of the product being packaged.
The primary purpose of film is to provide a protective barrier for the product. The film prevents contamination, and damage during shipment and display. It also enhances the visibility of the product. It allows customers to see the item clearly without opening the package.
Some key features of skin film include:
- Clarity: Skin films are very clear, allowing customers to see the product inside without limitation.
- Flexibility: The film conforms tightly to the shape of the product, providing a secure and snug fit.
- Sealing: Skin film should be easily sealed to the backing card or tray, creating a strong bond that prevents the film from coming off during handling and shipping.
- Strength and durability: The film should have enough strength to protect the product from damage during shipment and display.
Skin pack films are available in various thicknesses, widths, and roll sizes. Skin Film is also available with adhesive in the film. This allows adhesion to uncoated board.
It’s important to note that many skin films may have different issues due to their make up. Some films are recyclable, while others may require specialized processes. It’s advisable to check the specific material and rules for the skin packaging film being used.
