Film Structures

The structure of the film has everything to do with how your packaging will protect your product. Whether using a monolayered polyethylene film or a complex multilayer foil laminated film with barrier properties, we can match your existing specifications or help you determine what would best suit your particular product.

Here are just a few examples of film types and uses:

Acrylic Coated

Two-sided aqueous acrylic. Two-sided heat sealable. Excellent water vapor and aroma barrier. Suitable for laminations, printing, single structure. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.

Acrylic-PVDC Coated

One side is coated with an aqueous dispersion of poly vinyl chloride (PVDC). The other side is coated with an aqueous dispersion of acrylic. Excellent water vapor, gas and aroma barrier. Heat sealable two sides. Suitable for printing, lamination and single structure. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.

Cast

High clarity two-side sealable for print and lamination application. Available with corona treatment. Ideal for use in side-weld seal applications. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.

Clear Coextruded Polypropylene

Two-side heat sealable, one-side corona treated for ink adhesion and lamination. Designed for use in horizontal and vertical form fill and seal packaging applications. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.

Clear Homopolymer Polypropylene

Available as treated on one side, two sides or non-treated. Used in printing and lamination applications. Superior optical properties. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.

Metallized Polypropylene

Available in sealable and non-sealable varieties. Excellent barrier characteristics. Suitable for printing and lamination packaging applications. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.

PVDC Coated

Two-sided aqueous dispersion of poly vinyl chloride (PVDC). Excellent barrier to water vapor, gas and aromas. One-side printable, two-side sealable. Suitable for print and lamination. Conforms to FDA guidelines for use in contact with food.
