Packing Equipment Systems in Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in Canada. Still, this didn’t hold back the island from bringing a diverse range of attractions to the table. In fact, its rural charms are what attracts many people to this unspoiled little island of farmland, dunes, and lakes. One of the most popular attractions is the enormous Prince Edward Island National Park, covering much of the island’s central, northern coastline. The park boasts its own set of attractions from beaches and other outdoor areas to historic buildings.

For a Victorian-era vibe, Charlottetown is the place to go. Heritage buildings of various feels can be found in this small town. What’s more, it’s home to the Confederation CEntre of the Arts, a major cultural hub that features a museum, art gallery, and theaters. Are you a fan of L.M. Montgomery?

If you’re into lighthouses, then you’ve come to the right place. Points East Coastal Drive is on the eastern end of the island/Along the drive, you can visit six lighthouses.

Polypropylene as a flow wrapping film material

When it comes to horizontal flow wrapping, polypropylene is the most commonly used film. This material provides an overwrapping package to snack foods, baked goods, candy, and many more. It is commonly composed of three layers: an outer coating, a polypropylene core, and an inner sealant layer. The outer layer is typically coated with Acrylic so the film won’t melt on the crimping jaws. This is also done to lessen the friction on contacted surfaces.

Polypropylene overwrap films come with a containment seal and protect products from dust and dirt. This kind of packaging material is also capable of providing a certain degree of, albeit not full, protection from oxygen and moisture. However, over time, air exchange from inside to outside will occur with this film. Depending on your packaging needs, a polypropylene film can be available in numerous laminations. For instance, there’s an unprinted polypropylene that’s characterized by a clear film for complete visibility of the contents inside.

Polypropylene film can also be used with multiple types of sealing methods, be it through heat seal layers or a cold seal adhesive layer. For some sealant layers like EVA, metallocene, or Surlyn, they melt easily at lower temperatures compared to most sealant layers, thus, helping boost production lines. Also, polypropylene can be laminated with other materials like low-density polyethylene so it can be utilized for gas flush or Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) applications.

A barrier film and airtight seals are necessary for these gas flush applications. With a barrier film, there won’t be any atmosphere exchange in the package. Meanwhile, MAP applications involve the replacement of oxygen with nitrogen, carbon dioxide, or a mix of both gases. This process curbs mold growth while extending the shelf life of the content in the package.
