Microwave susceptor laminate
API microwave susceptor is designed to convert microwave energy into radiant heat to assist with the cook performance of foods in microwave ovens.
Specifically, susceptor provides heat to the outside surface of the food to promote browning and crisping. This in turn improves appearance and eating experience.
API microwave susceptor has been used as a paper or paperboard insert in microwaveable packaging for over twenty years for applications such as pies, fries, pizzas, popcorn and even entire multi-component ready meals.
A range of products are available for most types of application, including a safety version which provides extra protection against the risk of combustion from over-heating. All are approved for direct food contact and proven to avoid taint or odour.
Specialist technical advice should be sought from API before specifying susceptor for use in any particular application.
