In order to better meet the demands of its customers, adapa Group has comprehensively revised its SkinFresh Top range and now offers "SkinFresh Top Expert", a solution that is at the forefront in terms of both processing and presence at the POS. This once again exemplifies the Group's development expertise, putting even established products to the test during R&D in order to meet contemporary user needs at all times.

Skin packaging - premium look for premium products
Skin packaging is the first choice for presenting high-quality meat and fish products. After all, anyone who offers first-class quality is entitled to show it. The transparent, perfectly fitting films enclose the packaged product like a second skin, allowing it to be inspected from all sides. The premium look also characterizes the presentation at the POS: meat, fish and more are gently secured in the packaging and protected from drip loss by the tight-fitting, high-gloss film. This enables them to be presented in an eye-catching upright or hanging presentation. Another advantage of Skin is its improved shelf life: compared to other common packaging methods, this can be significantly extended with Skin packaging. Finally, skin also goes hand in hand with convenience, e.g. for packing ready meals that can be microwaved in their packaging with suitable film.

Having already proven its reliable performance on thermoformers and tray sealers, adapa’s newly revised SkinFresh Top Expert range works perfectly on all common substrates and impresses with its premium optics.

"SkinFresh Top Expert" by adapa - diverse applications, excellent performance

The accumulated know-how from more than three decades of experience in the development and production of skin films has resulted in adapa's high-quality SkinFresh Top Expert range, which covers all common applications. The modern films for packing fresh foods such as meat, poultry, fish and cheese, as well as plant-based products and convenience dishes, now feature a new formulation for even better processing on all state of the art packaging lines. The SkinFresh Top Expert range includes highly transparent, glossy and even printable PE-based films with a high barrier that tightly yet tension-free enclose the product. Elastic and at the same time robust, they can be used for food products of various heights and are also suitable for packaging products with bones. The high-performance skin films are available in film thicknesses between 80 and 150 µm and seal reliably to PE sealing layers or APET and PP mono films and trays. For material-saving and thus resource-saving applications, it has thereby been possible to reduce the film thickness further and further while maintaining the same high performance.
