Offering consumer convenience in addition to offering product protection

A new tamper-evident, induction seal liner has been developed by Tri-Seal to provide food, beverage, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products with protection and easy opening.

EdgePull induction seals from Tri-Seal, a division of Tekni-Plex, headquartered in Wayne, PA, US, require low peel force to remove. They also peel cleanly, which means no adhesive residue/strings to contaminate the contents after opening.

The pull tab has enhanced strength to resist delamination from the rest of the structure when removed. The liners are typically used with closures ranging from 28–63mm and are suitable for a range of narrow- and wide-mouthed containers.

EdgePull PPE has been engineered for use with polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) containers typically used for dairy, nutraceuticals and other liquids.

EdgePull Universal targets packaging operations that use multiple bottle types (PE, PP, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene terephthalate) and require one liner material that can be used across all product applications.

Both induction seal materials feature a multilayer structure, including a proprietary heat-seal formulation. The induction seal pull tab is also printed with arrows indicating in which direction to pull to facilitate easy removal.
