Finished with high-quality graphics, ProAmpac offers foil and film lidding in virtually any shape or size. With numerous embossing units incorporating various patterns and styles, ProAmpac, offers multiple material structures for various applications.
The super high gloss surface of film lidding brilliantly showcases your graphics. Plastic die-cut lidding allows for 100% in-line metal detection to ensure no contamination of the packed product while in the filling process from machine parts, bolts washers etc. ensuring a safe product is delivered to the consumer every time.
Our variety of embossing units gives you pattern and style choices. Various embossing types include random, pin dot, linen, and custom options. We offer RIM embossing to help your graphics display nicely on shelves as well as ensure your ability to print on only the required areas.
Pin dot embossing is much less aggressive on a polyester die-cut lid and is more beneficial than the traditional grub pattern seen on aluminum die-cut lids. The pin dot embossed polyester vastly improves readability, which allows a large amount of information to be legible in a small space on your die-cut lid.

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.
