What is a Lidding Film?

Lidding films are an essential component of packaging fresh food products. This film serves as a critical barrier that seals products within the container, preserving freshness, extending shelf life, and maintaining product integrity.

This thin film may seem frivolous, but it is specifically designed to adhere securely to the rim of various container shapes, such as trays and cups, to create an airtight seal that protects the product from contaminants, while still allowing for easy access.

The versatility that lidding films provide makes them suitable for a wide range of applications, from food and beverages to pharmaceuticals.

Engineered to perform under temperature extremes and handling stresses, lidding films maintain their integrity and functionality from the point of packaging through to the end consumer’s use.

These films can be customized to include features such as anti-fog properties, UV protection, and oxygen barriers depending on the specific needs of the product.

Additionally, lidding films can be designed for different degrees of transparency, from crystal clear options that allow for more product visibility – common with fresh prepared foods such as hummus or salads – to opaque films that provide UV protection or enhance branding opportunities.

At Bison Bag, we recognize that each product has unique requirements, which is why our team is dedicated to working with you to select the right material, thickness, and properties to ensure that your product is packaged in the most effective and appealing way possible for top performance in the marketplace.

What Is Lidding Material?

Lidding films are made of different materials that contain the product and safeguards it against contaminants during shipping and while it sits on the shelf.

Predominantly, lidding films are created from various types of plastic. These plastics most commonly range from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) to polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE). Each material is selected for its barrier properties, flexibility, and compatibility with different sealing technologies, so not every product has the same type of lidding film.

Bison Bag recognizes the growing demand for sustainability and environmental responsibility in packaging choices. Consequently, we also offer innovative, eco-friendly alternatives, including bio-based plastics and compostable materials, providing our clients with options that not only meet their packaging needs but also align with their environmental values.
