Typical applications include soups, flavoured rice, vegetables,

A real alternative to aluminium
Today many retort food applications are packaged in laminated
structures containing aluminium foil. While standard plastics
combine ease of use with transparency, barrier properties have not
been sufficient for many uses.
KURARISTER™ has all the advantages of plastics, but adds both
high gas-barrier and retort resistance. Stand-up pouches using
KURARISTER™ will not lose their properties during processing,
handling and folding, and offer real advantages compared to
aluminium, especially since:
- Film pouches can be heated in microwave ovens,
- Metal detectors can be used to screen for foreign objects,
- No residue remains following incineration.
- KURARISTER™ films are transparent.
