When cucumbers are packed and stored or transport correctly in Prolong(r) Vapour Control packaging, characterized by high moisture vapor transmission rates
, storability can be extended to up to 3 weeks.
They have a moisture vapor transmission rate
400-800 g of moisture vapor per square meter of product per day.
In combination with highly breathable facestocks, vastly improved moisture vapor transmission rate
(MVTR) can be accomplished using Avery Dennison (AD2000 adhesive), a proprietary patent pending formulation.
Key parameters include the nature of the food product, the volume of space (consumer-size or foodservice package or bulk bin) being protected, volume of product, initial humidity, moisture content in the product post packaging, moisture vapor transmission rate
, and anticipated storage time.
The adhesive is pattern coated onto the urethane film, resulting in increased breathability and a high moisture vapor transmission rate
Together with the right choice of carrier materials, the wide array of monomer building blocks available offers acrylic adhesives a great deal of flexibility for building in high moisture vapor transmission rates
to maintain breath-ability without the need for perforations.
