At Shepherd we are once again stretching the limits of the thermoforming process by adding coated paper to the list of materials we are capable of converting into packaging products.
Fibreform® is a paper product produced by BillerudKorsnäs of Sweden with a heat seal coating that can be heated and thermoformed on conventional in-line thermoforming machines. Preprinting and heat sealing to thermoformed trays provides an extremely attractive and functional package.
The 100% virgin material is ideal for the most stringent food packaging requirements. Draw ratios are limited but applications include lidding for food and confection trays. Contact Shepherd to have a sales representative show you a sample of preprinted, powerformed Fibreform by Shepherd.
