Selig has unveiled an advanced three-ply LDPE foam lining material which offers a range of benefits to food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and other industries that supply their goods in rigid containers.

Uni-Foam US™ is a robust, non-absorbent co-extruded expanded polyethylene lining material that is compressible and resistant to microbial growth. It offers a highly efficient and reliable barrier to aqueous, acidic, or oil-based liquids.

For example, it provides a clean and durable solution for sealing beverages when used to line roll-on pilfer proof (ROPP) closures. It can also be used in pharmaceutical applications with child-resistant closures for tablets and liquids, cosmetics creams and lotions, and liquid or solid cleaning products. Selig’s Uni-Foam US™ lining material is dust-free, non-absorbent, remains unaffected by ambient temperatures and does not support mould growth.

The smooth white surface adds value to the appearance of the package and a choice of thicknesses allow even the most irregular neck finishes, or aggressive of products to be sealed effectively. Uni-Foam US™ is initially being offered in thickness of 0.030”, 0.035” and 0.040”, with a density of 25 lb/ft³ (0.40 g/cm³), an 8” core size with a 32” maximum roll diameter.
