ProAmpac's foil packaging provides a complete, impermeable barrier for a variety of fresh packed stick or chuck butters. Our unique aluminum structure is made without intentionally adding per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and protects product integrity and improves shelf-life. The foil has a strong flexible bond that will not delaminate, or curl as there is no inbuilt stress with the process. Our embossing process has been developed to give the best dead fold possible due to its mechanical properties. This in combination with very controlled slip value, ensures our foil runs smoothly, without issue on packing machines.
We use solventless adhesives as part of the makeup of the product which assists in generating excellent migration results. Our foil has been developed to be environmentally highly efficient, using lower energy during distribution therefore reducing the carbon footprint.
Great for wrapping food, ProAmpac’s parchment paper can be used on its own or in conjunction with waxed paper, aluminum foil or other packaging materials. Made from renewable materials without intentionally adding per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), our parchment paper is grease and moisture resistant and also has excellent dead fold properties.
