absorbent laminates for

meat packaging

Super absorbing performance with laminates and airlaids for meat packaging.

Gelok superabsorbent laminates and TotalCore airlaids for Food Tray Pads are made with FDA approved food grade superabsorbent polymers, natural cellulose fibers and tissues, making them a safe choice for use with poultry, seafood, and meat. As the absorbent core, Gelok superabsorbent laminates and airlaids for meat packaging lock fluid into a solid gel, reducing unattractive liquids, odors and bacteria. Because liquids are locked in physically by hydrogen bonding they will not be released back into the package and inconvenience the consumer.
