Event Overview


Fogging, or the undesired formation of small water droplets on the surface of films, is a common problem when packing moisture-containing products such as fruit, vegetables, or meat in a tight container. This not only makes packed food look less fresh and less attractive, but sensitive applications can even be damaged or have their shelf-life reduced due to the presence of water droplets. 

Oriented polyester film converters and thermoformers can now count on an innovative Antifogging Compound that offers durable, transparent, and homogeneous performance for direct food contact PET packaging. 

The SUKANO® Antifogging Compound ensures easy handling without the requirement of additional machinery investment and eliminates the need for secondary processing steps, such as coatings. 


In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about SUKANO® Antifogging Compound for oriented polyester films and thermoformed applications to replace coating technology. 

  • Gain an understanding of how to achieve a transparent, durable, and homogenous antifogging effect.  

  • Find out about the recyclability and circularity test results of the SUKANO® Antifogging Compound.
