To serve the varied needs of the flexible packaging market, Toronto, Canada-based Celplast Metallized Products offers several metallized films with tailored barrier properties. Where high barrier is required, FOILMET® and FOILMET® PLUS metallized PET films offer excellent WVTR and OTR and can be used for foil replacement and other high barrier applications.
Kicking barrier performance up an order of magnitude, DURAMET®, top-coated metallized PET film, offers WVTR below 0.01 g/100 in.2/day, and OTR below 0.01 cc/100 in.2/day, for applications where ultra-high barrier properties and moisture resistance are a consideration. The top coating acts as a protective layer, absorbing the flexing stress and minimizing the effects on the metallized layer. As such, top-coated films have shown better performance than standard metallized films during Gelbo flexing. Packages made with metallized films also lead to higher productivity, as they seal at higher filling speeds than packages made with aluminum foil
FOILMET®, FOILMET® PLUS and DURAMET® PET films are excellent products with a full range of barrier properties, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding applications. They are suitable to replace foil in many different products, such as snacks, pet food, coffee pouches, sachets for dry foods and even liquid packaging. They also offer the possibility to eliminate layers and reduce material usage in existing products, contributing to CPGs sustainability goals.
