How does ThermoSkin® work
The innovative ThermoSkin® packaging solution highlights your products to the maximum. This fully automated vacuum skin packaging system not only convinces due to its efficiency, but also provides a number of other benefits, for example in the area of retail presentation. For example, various easy opening methods are available to increase user friendliness.
The thermoformed pack with product is hermetically sealed with a special skin film by means of a deep evacuation process. The film fits the contours of the product without folds or creases. Subsequently, a second top film can be sealed to create an additional head space for extras, even under MAP.
On any standard thermoformer
Instead of requiring a dedicated machine, the sophisticated ThermoSkin® packs are produced on a standard SEALPAC thermoformer with a specific tooling. Depending on machine configuration, products with a maximum protrusion of 45 mm above the sealing edge will be securely packaged.
