4. Tray sealer creates hermetic MAP paperboard packaging

Proseal is demonstrating production of the Halopack tray—the first fully hermetic paperboard modified-atmosphere packaging (MAP)—on its SKR tray sealing machine. The board comprises more than 90% recycled material, and the trays incorporate high-barrier properties designed to preserve food quality and extend shelf life.

The Halopack trays are intended to deliver appealing product presentation, a high level of environmental performance, reduced food waste, long shelf life and ease of recycling in a MAP package. A peelable inner layer can be peeled off the tray after use, so that the tray can be recycled.

Proseal will show the Halopack tray production and SKR tray sealer at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2019 in Booth LS-6563.
