Metallized Films

In the manufacture of packaging metallization serves two main functions: 1) provides enhanced light-and gas-tightness – a material protects fats from oxidation in the light, and 2) increase the aesthetic appeal product. As a basis can serve a variety of polymer films, among which the most widely-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) and polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) films unplasticized (rigid) PVC film, polyethylene terephthalate and amorphous (APET) films. Less commonly used polyethylene, polyamide and polyester film. Depending on the final packaging all Metallized films can be divided into two groups: flexible and rigid film. By flexible metallized films include BOPP and BOPET film. 90% of such films are used as food packaging, and well as some non-food products.

In this case, a single-layer metallized film can be used in two ways: 1. Single-layer metallized packaging (foil stamped). Single Layer Metallized BOPP or BOPET packaging may be used for packaging of confectionery, ice cream, glazed cheese curds, etc. 2. Laminated packaging. The structure of metallized film laminate is one of the layers of packaging. Distributed following a multilayer metallized packaging.

Hard thick films are intended for the production of thermoformed packaging, such as confectionery containers, Trays Trays and blisters. The most widely metallized films were hard as decorative inserts (aprons) in packaging candies, chocolates, biscuits and other confectionery products, as well as Drug blisters (in the case of PVC film). Another line of severe metallized films is the production of so-called high barrier trays for meat and fish products. These trays (Substrate) are produced by thermoforming of the laminate film PETme + PE + PE or PVHme.
