The 1-Seal in-mold labeled lidding system is designed to eliminate the need for an additional foil seal or film membrane, providing marketers of premium packaged foods with a strong, environmentally-friendly packaging solution. By leaving a portion of the in-mold label surface exposed inside the lid, the device allows a container to be capped and sealed without the need for an additional foil seal or membrane. According to the manufacturer, this streamlines the sealing process by completely removing a step, and reduces waste due to membrane failures and membrane scrap. Further, the 1-Seal solution enables food and consumer packaging companies to optimize production efficiency and lower costs, the company says. The label, lid, and tray are made of the polypropylene, making the containers 100 percent recyclable; they also are heat- tolerant and microwavable.
