The Next-Generation of Metallized Barrier Films with Metacoat® Technology
Inline Coating and Metallizing Process
What is DURAMET®?
Metallized and top-coated films with excellent barrier properties.
DURAMET® uses Metacoat®, the first technology in the world that enables flexo printing of EB curable coatings at production speeds in the high vacuum environment of a metallizing chamber. By protecting the metal layer immediately after the deposition zone, significant barrier improvements are achieved on a wide variety of substrates.
- Layer elimination
- Foil replacement
- Carbon footprint reduction
- Hot fill
- Retort packaging
Improved Barrier Properties
The Metacoat® process seals and protects the metallized layer inside the chamber, significantly improving and stabilizing barrier properties.
The causes of defects:
- Impurities flaking off
The in-chamber coating protects the metal layer and impurities are trapped.
