PLASTOPIL FILM – Lidding, Sealing, Protecting, Forming, Extending shelf-life FILM


Plastopil Kibbutz Hazorea - IsraelPlastopil BV - The Netherlands
300 employees and annual capacity of 18,000 tons (and growing) are at the service of our international
customers, who have come to depend on Plastopil to meet world-class standards, guarantee reliable
delivery and continuously introduce innovative solutions. As technological leaders, we convert our knowledge
and insight into solutions bringing distinctive value to our customers.
As part of our specialized services AGQPE supplies film for the food and other industries. We specialize in lidding
films for tray sealers and fill-seal machines and in thermoforming film for form-pack machines.
We offer a full range of multi-layered films printed or unprinted. Our range of lidding film will seal most known
plastic containers i.e. CPET, APET, PP, PS, PVC, HDPE etc..
We Also supply ready-made bags for application of vacuuming, cooking in bag (See below) and stand-up pouches
(Doypack). These can be printed as well.

Our film range, made by PLASTOPIL includes films with Anti-Fog properties and high or medium barrier.
Barrier is achieved by using PA and EVOH only. No PVDC is used. The film will seal on containers that
have been contaminated by the packed product (i.e. oils, fats, liquids, powders or paste). It requires a
lower sealing temperature, therefore saving energy that allows for higher productivity. Polyethylene layer
enhances the lids mechanical properties, giving it greater tear and puncture resistance.
The film is available in different sealing properties:
· Lock-seal – where the film has to be torn in order to remove it.
· Easy-Peel – where the film can be peeled off from the container or in the bag.
· Burst –Peel - This is a new technology uniting the two old technologies in one film. The tray sealed
with this film will withstand great vertical pressure up to about 70kg weight placed on top of it, and
will not open unless burst by the pressure. If the film is pulled horizontally – same as easy-peel film – it
will peel of the container.
Our films range includes the high barrier, metalized film.
We are able to supply laminated films to fulfil specific customer requirements – for example – film which
has the appearance and matt feeling of paper.
Continuous R & D is a priority of our principals, to improve their material's mechanical properties, barrier
degree, and transparency, for all-use conditions.
New products available now are HIGH-TENSION (HT)FILM, STEAM FILM and BREATHING FILM:
HT (high tension) FILM: this new film shrinks while lidding and prevent wrinkles. It is thinner at 25mic or
18mic while retaining the high barrier and strength properties with excellent clarity and anti-fog properties.
STEAM-FILM allows microwave cooking without losing water. It is getting the product cooked evenly and quicker.
BREATHING FILM is of very high permeability and can also be micro-perforated allowing passage of gas, Oxygen
and CO2. It extends shelf-life of fresh vegetables and fruit. The film is made to suit the breathing requirements
of the specific product.
Our latest development is the TOPAZ range for pet-based packaging.

PLASTOPIL’s Topaz lidding films are a complete portfolio of extremely thin film with exceptional optical properties,
consistent sealing to APET, Anti-fog (AF) properties, dual oven able and different Oxygen barrier levels.

The combination of rigid PET webs or trays and Plastopil Topaz lidding offers the industry a cost-effective solution
and environmentally friendly package.
