Wipak offers a broad range of sausage- and other meat- packaging solutions, from thermoforming, semi-rigid, and flexible films to sustainable paper composites, efficient lidding films with high barrier effect, flowpacks, reclosable films, and tear tapes.
Thermoforming, Semi-Rigid and Flexible Films
Wipak multilayer films are customized specifically for the product to be packaged, and they can be delivered with or without a barrier layer.
Our polyester-based films (such as Multipet) are ideally suited to use in semi-rigid packages with a high gas barrier. They are available in thermoforming rolls.
The products in the flexible-film selection are based on a polyamide–polyolefin composite that can be combined with an external polypropylene layer if required. The Combitherm range also offers sterilizable versions, further expanding the extensive family of special versions.
Lidding Films and Flowpacks
Wipak lidding films protect the quality and freshness of food products that are packaged in a vacuum or under modified atmosphere (MAP). Whether anti-fog, EVOH barrier, or reclosing, the type of film always depends on the case-specific requirement profile. Polypropylene, polyamide, polyester, or paper composites are used, as the criteria dictate.
Wipak offers a number of reclosing systems. For example, we have created a “book package” reclosing system with “click lock”: two package halves are thermoformed, with different depths, and one half is pulled over the tray as a “lid.” In Multipet top-forming, two polyester trays are pressed into each other and sealed hermetically.
The Repak Bottom system uses an adhesive layer in the tray film and a sealing layer with migration barrier. The Repak Top solutions work with many kinds of bottom films, and they seal well to PE as well as to mono A-PET and PP.
Prepack: Multilayer Packaging for Freshness
Wipak offers special, PVDC-free films for meat products, including sausages, that are packaged fresh. Among these are PET composite films and paper combinations. An EVOH barrier allows for gas flushing while offering reliable protection against oxygen. The multilayer packaging protects the freshness - until the last slice is consumed.
