Barrier+ is an innovative container, suitable for Modified Atmosphere and SKIN Packaging. It is composed of pure virgin cellulose (83%) coming from cyclically renewed forests, and a multilayer plastic film (17%) with a high barrier to gases. The tray is suitable for heating up in microwave oven (800W for 6 ‘), and for food preservation in refrigerator and freezer (-18 °C). The reinforced rim (Ipack patent) gives the entire tray a particular rigidity and a high mechanical strength, necessary conditions for an efficient use in TOP SEAL (MAP) and SKIN sealing lines. Thanks to its specific features, Barrier+ is a container that can be easily used in the sealing molds for plastic containers (ex: PP – PET), without requiring particular modifications. Once the package has been opened and the food has been consumed, the film can be easily separated from the container for an optimal differentiation of materials and their subsequent disposal. Even without the separation of the film from the tray, Barrier+ is still recyclable with paper products, like all the other containers of the IPACK range.
