SK Packaging FAQ

1What are the best plastic food storage containers?
The best plastic containers for storing food are round tamper evident containers, flat flanged containers, and plastic pails with lids. Tamper evident plastic containers are leak-resistant, microwave-safe, tamper-evident, and recyclable. In contrast, flat flanged containers have a hermetic seal and are ideal for food items that need to be stored in airtight containers. Similarly, plastic pails with lids are the best choice for industrial storage and foodservice industries. Get in touch with us to place an order for any of these three food containers today.
2Can you put hot food in a plastic container?
You can put hot food in plastic containers that are made of high-quality material. At SK Packaging, our round tamper evident containers are made using the best quality plastic. This makes them microwaveable and suitable for hot food up to 85°C. Heating food or storing hot food in containers made from low-quality plastic is not recommended. This is because the chemicals from low-grade plastic can contaminate the food and change its genetic composition. Hence, we suggest checking the quality of the plastic container before putting hot food inside of it.
3What are the best storage containers for food?
Containers made of high-grade plastic are ideal for storing food. Our round tamper evident plastic containers come with secure lids and are leak resistant. Made of clear plastic, our product is microwaveable, hot fillable to 85°C, and recyclable. We supply quality tamper-proof plastic packaging for your company’s food product needs. We also provide in-mould labelling options so you can customise product packaging as per your requirements.
4What is the safest plastic for food?
Plastic containers that are compliant to Australian Standards AS2070 are safe for packing food items. At SK Packaging, we produce only AS2070 compliant plastic packaging containers to provide our customers with superior quality products. Our containers are safe for all types of food storage. Additionally, our cleanroom facility has been approved by HACCP: Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and we adhere to the quality accreditation ISO 9001: 2008. Hence, our quality systems are regularly audited to maintain an incredibly high standard.
5What plastic is used for packaging?
Plastics are commonly used for packaging as they are lightweight, easy to carry, and can be easily manufactured. In addition, they can conveniently replace glass, steel, and aluminium as a cost-effective alternative. However, all plastic packaging begins as tiny resins, which are small materials that form polymers. Plastic resins are available in various colours and forms to meet different marketplace demands. Therefore, many plastic resins with different molecular structures are used in packaging applications. Some of them include High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE), Polystyrene (PS), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC, Vinyl), Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET, PETE), and Polypropylene. As one of the expert plastic packaging manufacturers, SK Packaging takes advantage of innovative ideas and market trends to offer you the type of packaging solution you expect. You can contact us to know in detail.
6How do you make plastic packaging?
Plastic packaging manufacturers use various raw materials to make plastic packaging. The raw materials include virgin plastics, bio-based plastics, recycled plastics, and combinations with other materials like paper, aluminium etc. The use of different raw materials gives the packaging the essential functionalities throughout its life cycle. In addition, the transformation and decoration processes used to produce plastic packaging in Australia are numerous. It includes calendaring, injection, thermoforming, extrusion, etc. Then plastic packaging is used to provide the packaging solution to different products, like food, cosmetics, beverages, detergents, materials, ingredients, etc. SK Packaging is a trusted plastic packaging supplier across Australia. You can speak to our expert to know more about the manufacturing process.
7How do you know if plastic is food grade?
Plastics that are used to pack and store food and drink are manufactured to a much higher standard than other plastics. These plastics are called food grade plastic. Food agencies use food grade plastic containers. They check that they should not contain dyes or other recycled parts that are harmful to human beings while using them for storing food and drink. The easiest way to check if the plastic is food grade is to look for the Resin Identification Code, also called the recycling number. It helps to identify the type of plastic material. The code consists of a triangle of arrows surrounding a number between 1 and 7. If you want a safe plastic container for storing food items, you can buy code numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5. They are food grade and safe to use. However, the plastic with code number 1 is made for single use.
8Which grade of plastic is safe for food?
Plastic bottles or jars, including condiment containers or single-serving bottles made of food grade plastic like Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE), are safe to use. However, milk jugs, grocery bags, and squeeze-dispenser bottles made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are also safe. In addition, cling wrap high clarity food storage bags made of Polyvinyl Chloride also provide a safe storage solution. In addition, plastics with grades #2, #4 and #5 are generally considered safe for storing and consuming food items and drinks. But you should be careful while using them in the microwave, even if they are labelled as microwave safe. However, plastics with categories #1, #3, #6, and #7 should be used with extreme caution for storing food or drink. All our plastic food containers in Australia are made of food grade plastics that ensure their safety and usability. You can also contact us for different ranges of plastic food tubs in Australia.
9What is an in mould label?
In Mould Labels, commonly known as IML, is an injection moulding process. This process is used to produce the decoration of the plastic part. It decorates the plastic parts using a label during the plastic injection process. First, a pre-printed label is inserted through automation into the cavity of an injection mould. Then the plastic is injected over the label. IML or in-mould labelling provides a superior decoration option to the plastic packaging industry. At SK Packaging, we provide custom design plastics with IML. In addition, we manufacture and supply a wide range of plastic tubs Australia-wide. You can contact our expert for more information.
10What is the IML process?
In-mould labelling or IML process is the innovative labelling technology used for plastic packaging. It involves a sophisticated procedure. First, a plastic design engineer places a pre-printed label in the injection moulding machine. Then, the labelling process takes place simultaneously with the packaging production process. You don’t need a separate adhesive film, as when you inject liquid plastic, the labels bind directly with the plastic polymer melt. As a result, the label forms an inseparable unit with the packaging after it cools. Therefore, you can use this processing technology to create recyclable single-material packaging. It’s a primary factor that you can’t underestimate.
11What are IML containers?
IML containers are made from IML technology. IML technology is the popular method of decorating rigid plastic containers used by almost all progressive plastic industries nowadays. IML or in-mould label is the process of labelling on the plastic package that is simultaneously carried on during the manufacturing process of the package. It results in labelled plastic parts directly from the tool. In addition, it helps in producing containers with high-quality graphics. As a reputed IML container manufacturer and a supply, SK Packaging stocks IML tubs and many other containers catering to the needs of different industries. You can get in touch with our IML specialist to learn more about the procedure.
12What is IML material?
IML or in-mould labelling involves using plastic or paper labels during the manufacturing of a container or parts using blow moulding, thermoforming, or injection moulding processes. However, the term IML stands for a technique. It’s a technology where a pre-printed polypropylene is inserted in a mould that has the shape of your end product. When you add the molten polypropylene to the mould, it fuses with the label and takes the shape of the mould. Again, you can contact us to know the procedure in detail.
