LST is a multilayer barrier casing designed for production of all types of frankfurters, wieners, hot dogs, mini-sausages, spreads, liver sausages, and spreadable sausages.
The distinctive feature of the LST casing is absence of migration of the colorant from the product into the environment during the thermal processing or heating for consumption by the end consumer.
The high heat resistance
of the polymers used to make the packaging for frankfurters and wieners significantly extends the temperature range of utilization of the casing in comparison with collagen and cellulose casings.
The high mechanical strength
of the packaging for frankfurters and wieners makes it possible to mold the products by using various types of equipment to achieve a high speed of production and overstuffing relative to the nominal caliber. The caliber consistency in the packaging for frankfurters and wieners provides for stable filling on the modern high-capacity frankfurter lines and stuffers with twisting devices.
The materials used for production of the packaging for frankfurters and wieners are inert to the action of bacteria and mold fungi. This improves the hygienic characteristics of both the casing itself, and the finished products.
Ease of peeling when peeled manually immediately after the thermal processing or by the end consumer, without the stage of spraying (cooling).
Ease of peeling when peeled automatically.
Closed end of the shirred stick, the casing is designed for use on automatic equipment.
Open end of the shirred stick, the casing is designed for manual tying and use on stuffers with twisting devices.
