Meat and cheese processors can now get top grades on environmental scorecards and improve package performance with new Eco-Tite shrink bags from Curwood. Eco-Tite bags eliminate PVdC (polyvinylidene chloride) and use 25 to 33 percent less material than traditional shrink bags. Performance benefits of Eco-Tite bags include superior sealability, barrier, abrasion resistance and aesthetics compared to traditional bags. The multilayer Eco-Tite structure includes a durable outer layer to resist puncture and abrasion; an EVOH layer for superior oxygen barrier without PVdC; and a high-flow sealant layer for excellent caulking and sealing under a wider range of sealing conditions. Eco-Tite bags also feature excellent shrink for a tight fit with minimal dog ears, plus brilliant clarity and gloss for an outstanding product presentation.
