Coatings for Lid Films

The right product for every lid application

Lid films protect food from external influences such as light, oxygen or water vapor and prevent the oxidation of fat. In addition to their protective function, they also serve as an information and advertising medium and must therefore be easy to print on. At the same time, the lid should be easy to remove from the container without tearing.

Our coatings for lid films are optimally matched to the opening behavior, processability and the respective substrate and sealing partner. We have extensive expertise in packaging for sensitive foods such as dairy products, which place high demands on taste, freshness, storage processes and shelf life. Our product portfolio includes protective and heat seal coatings, primers as well as spacer and overprint varnishes.

Coatings for plastic lid films and their composites

Plastic lids are more cost-effective than aluminum lids and are extremely robust due to their high puncture and tear resistance. Compared to aluminum lid films, plastic lid films require less energy during production. Their lower weight also has a positive effect on transportation costs.
