FOR ovenable packaging for a roast dinner, there is no material better than nylon – and Sirane’s Siralon offers a highly versatile solution perfect for many different markets.
Nylon is a terrific material for cooking meat and seafood in. With a joint of meat it will retain the juices and flavours, aid browning of the meat, and reduce cooking times.
It can be flow-wrapped, vac-packed or used as bags with ties – meaning no matter what the scale of your packing operation, you can offer your customers the benefits of nylon.
Sirane MD, Simon Balderson, said: “Siralon is a world’s first. A revolutionary new nylon-based bag or film, suitable for the oven or microwave, it has one crucial difference – it can be heat-sealed on a flow-wrapper – which means mass production can still use nylon.
“Nylon truly is the best ovenable packaging format for a roast that there is. It doesn’t go brittle, like many other materials, and its absorbent qualities will help with browning.
“Siralon can be cooked at higher temperatures to the traditional alternatives, which means that cooking times can be significantly reduced, especially on larger cuts or whole birds.
“And most importantly, meats cooked with nylon packaging taste delicious.”
Nylon has long-been accepted as the best material for oven-roasting bags, but until Sirane’s new blend was created it has simply not been possible to use it on a flow-wrapper.
It is perfect for whole birds such as turkey or chicken, as well as lamb, beef, and pork – indeed any bird or cut of meat. It can also be used for seafood, particularly whole fish.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies, Sirane sales director, said: “Siralon is massive news for the industry. Quality packaging for oven roasting that was dual-ovenable and could be also be heat-sealed on a flow-wrapping machine just hasn’t been possible – up until now.
“Up until now companies have been taking the best solution available and accepting the downsides that came with it – well now the downsides have been taken away.
“Siralon has everything – it can be flow-wrapped, it can be vac-packed, it is strong, it offers a great shelf-life barrier, and the results when cooked are succulent, moist meat.”
Siralon 21 – the blend suitable for flow-wrapping – is not the only blend available, there is also Siralon 10 which is perfect for microwave cooking and cooking at low temperatures.
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Siralon 10 can be flow-wrapped, is strong, has great clarity and has a good barrier so is perfect for vacuum packing. It can be cooked at up to 180oC, and is great for microwave steaming, hot-hold, sous-vide and boil-in-the-bag.
“Siralon 21 has all the same properties, but it can be cooked at up to 210oC. This means poultry, meat or fish could be flow-wrapped in packaging that the consumer can simply take home and put in the oven – it opens up a whole host of retail possibilities.”
Siralon is printable – so can be branded – and can be clear or coloured. It is available in a variety of different microns, on the reel, and is available as bags or films.
