 Press Releases

  • Introduced for the first time in North American market, Specialty's non-PVC Foodservice film & non-PVC Meat film is a safer alternative to existing PVC Foodservice & Meat films in the market.

    It does not release any harmful substances into the food that it is used to wrap.

    There are no substances in the film from the California Prop. 65 list of harmful chemicals.

     

    The Foodservice Industry has been using PVC food wrap film for over 4 decades.

    The Retail Grocery Industry switched over from PVC food wrap to PE food wrap film about 15 years ago.

    Actually, around the turn of the century, S.C. Johnson took the initiative and removed chlorine from its plastic food wraps.

    The company introduced PolyEthylene (PE) Plastic Food Wrap.

    A similar change, unfortunately, didn’t happen in the foodservice industry, which is a far bigger user of food wrap film.

    Rightly so, since no manufacturer could bring in a foodservice film using PE plastic and with the same performance quality as existing PVC foodservice film.

    Until now.

    Specialty Polyfilms took the initiative, accepted the challenge and after much dedicated efforts that spanned almost 5 years, came out with a foodservice film made of Polyethylene.

    And with the same performance characteristics as existing PVC foodservice film:

    ·         Optimum cling

    • High transparency
    • Greater puncture resistance
    • Superior oxygen transfer ratio
    • Easy tear

    Additionally,

    • no chlorine odour
    • no harmful phthalates
    • no environmental hazards

    PE film will soon become popular over PVC film.

    Earlier, PVC was widely used in virtually every industry, including construction, electronics, consumer products and packaging, toys, health care, fashion, and automotive.

    In waste incinerators, high temperatures cause the PVC to release dioxins because of the chorine content.

    Phthalates, present in the PVC food film, can migrate to the food being protected or preserved.

    Both dioxins and phthalates are suspected to be endocrine disruptors and possible carcinogens.

    Sometime back, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, environmental groups, and consumers began to express concern over the use of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) in children’s toys, medical equipment such as IV Fluid bags, plastic food storage containers, stationery material, car liners, etc.

    The use of PVC plastic in these industries has since been phased out.

    Nowadays, PVC is only found in PVC pipes used in construction (even that is getting replaced slowly with new material) and PVC foodservice film.

    Change will come there as well.

    We are sure

    Polyethylene (PE) – the base material used in manufacturing Forvara® - is a simple structure polymer that puts least eco-strain on the environment. PE disintegrates in a given time-period and when annihilated (as in incinerators), it burns to simple hydrogen and carbon with no polluting substance.
