Seal strength and integrity are important for food safety and shelf life. But, what factors make a strong seal?
Heat, time, and pressure. The perfect combination of these three factors is essential for strong seal integrity and strength in packaging. Maintaining seal integrity throughout the package’s life cycle is important to guarantee high product quality upon opening. For the consumer, there is nothing worse than buying a product, such as a delicious cut of steak, only to find out the product has spoiled because of a seal breakage. Obviously, that reflects poorly upon the meat company.
