Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. The skeleton sheet can be directly recycled and reused in the production process. MBT enhances the oxygen barrier of the packaging produced using this method.
How does it work?
This technology provides thermoformed cups and tubs with barrier properties. Seven layers serve to increase the oxygen barrier of the packaging and, consequently, the shelf life of sensitive products. This technology is primarily used for large volumes like ready meals, coffee capsules, pâté, cheese, or fresh meat.
