CPET trays are the most versatile option of the ready meal concept. The precision control of the material’s crystallinity means that the product can be used within a temperature range of –40°C to +220°C.
What is CPET packaging?
CPET is a translucent or opaque material which can be manufactured in a range of colors to meet your merchandising needs. As with other PET materials, CPET is #1 recyclable, and its properties make it ideal for a range of demanding food and beverage packaging applications.
Is CPET plastic safe?
A little pursuit through google suggests that the CPET container itself should be harmless but CPET is often finished with a layer of APET to reduce permeability and the APET is further coated with PVDC to give it a lustre. PVDC (Saran) has been implicated as a potential contaminant in microwaved food.
CPET trays are recyclable
The trays allow for light-weighting, #1 recyclability, optional post-consumer recycled content, and up to 15% source reduction. The trays feature toughness at low temperatures and dimensional stability at high temperatures so they go easily from freezer to microwave or oven to table.
Designed for frozen, refrigerated and shelf-stable meals, side dishes, and desserts, plus case-ready and processed meats, cheese trays, and fresh bakery. The trays are impact-modified to prevent breakage at low temperatures, and are FDA-approved for high-temperature use and bake-in applications.
Feature inherent oxygen barrier to protect freshness and flavor. Trays can be paired with rigid or flexible lidding for a complete package solution.
