ILIP debuts at MeatTech 2021
Italy-headquartered packaging solutions expert ILIP participates this year for the first time at MeatTech – the trade fair specialising in innovative technology and solutions for the cold cuts, meat and ready meals production chain – from 22–26 October at Fiera Milan to Rho (MI).
ILIP’s exhibition stand – located in hall 15 stand MT-A19 at MeatTech – is set to showcase ILIP’s innovative range of trays for meat packaging, consisting of two product lines: the SealMaster line and the WrapMaster line, available in five profiles, each declinable in different heights.
The main feature of this new range is that it has been designed following the logic of Eco-Design, so as to have the best product performance with the minimum use of material. Such principles have been followed with a view to the Circular Economy, for an end of life that has the objective of the recovery of secondary raw material and therefore of the recycling of the trays.
SealMaster – heat-sealable trays for meat
SealMaster is ILIP's line of heat-sealable trays for meat – designed for use in heat-sealing molds that are already existing on the market, in order to guarantee perfect processability on the packaging lines, as well as being suitable for modified atmosphere packaging (M.A.P.).
SealMaster is available in three material formulations: EVO with recycled PET content up to 90 per cent; BIO made of compostable bioplastic certified EN13432, and DUO with a classic multilayer structure in PET/PE for excellent heat sealing integrity.
WrapMaster – for stretch film or flow-pack automatic lines
Meanwhile, WrapMaster is ILIP's range of meat trays designed specifically for packaging systems with automatic lines that use stretch film or flow-pack: this objective has led to the realisation of specific shapes of the corners and the junction of the bottom with the walls of the tray. In addition, the upper edge – with reduced friction and anti-cut ERGO+ (Extended Rounded rim + reduced Grip On) – helps to withstand the stresses of the automatic packaging lines and to ensure process reliability.
The WrapMaster line is available in the EVO and BIO structural formulations, which are characterised by the same characteristics of the two homonymous formulations present in the SealMaster line.
Two solutions to absorb meat exudates
ILIP's range of meat packaging solutions, SealMaster and WrapMaster, is also characterised by the availability of two different solutions to absorb meat exudates: with Microcell bottom or with absorbent pad.
In particular, the innovative Microcell-bottom available within the Evo and Duo formulations: thanks to the surface tension, it captures and traps the exudates in the cells without the need for the classic absorbent pad.
