Rockwell Solutions, a UK packaging converter, believes it may have the world’s first compostable, peelable lidding film for PLA trays. BioPeel is a clear, peelable PLA lidding or flow wrap film for biodegradable applications. The company said the film is suitable for use in chilled and frozen conditions.
According to the Dundee-based converter, the film has a broad sealing window and can be perforated. Rockwell uses its own heat seal technology and, according to its website, became one of the first companies in the United Kingdom to achieve ISO 9002 and BRC certification.
