Abstract

Absorbent Meat Tray Design. A superabsorbent-containing film may be produced that is also heat sealable. The thermoplastic sealable film or film laminate can be used as the absorbent layer in a cut produce or raw meat, fish or poultry tray or pad. The pad or tray may also comprise a porous cover layer to separate the SAP-containing layer from direct contact with the tray contents. Because the film or film laminate is made of appropriate thermoplastic materials, it can be sealed to a liquid and gas barrier film without removal of the self-absorbing material and other materials to expose a gas barrier layer before sealing.
