Skin films for meat, fish, and poultry

Schur Flexibles offers a broad range of skin films for meat, fish, and poultry packaging applications. Even rough and hard-edged products such as bacon, seafood, or food products with bones are safely covered by skin films like a second skin. Our skin films stand out for their transparency, gloss, and high puncture resistance. Skin films also offer a longer shelf life compared to packages using protective gas.
