A Lower Cost, Lower Carbon Footprint Solution for the High Barrier Flexible Packaging Market
Toronto, ON – March 17, 2017 – Celplast Metallized Products Limited is ready to go to market with its revolutionary DURAMET® top-coated metallized PET film. It brings a lower cost, lower carbon footprint alternative to foil in the high barrier flexible packaging market. In head-to-head tests with 4-ply PET/foil/nylon/CPP adhesive laminates, 3-ply PET/DURAMET®/CPP adhesive laminates have achieved similar barrier and bond results to the 4-ply foil structure. This is also the case when comparing 4-ply PET/foil/PET/LDPE to 3-ply PET/DURAMET®/LDPE adhesive laminates. These results have been proven out on different laminators with several commercially available adhesive systems. Below figure shows barrier results of a 3-ply DURAMET laminate versus barrier values in a 4-ply foil structure.
DURAMET® meets FDA food contact requirements for use with all food types under Condition of Use E. It also complies with relevant requirements of the Swiss Chemicals Ordinance SR 813.11 (ChemO) and European Regulation No. 10/2011 for food contact. With the imminent commissioning of the world’s first large-scale 2.45 m wide Metacoat® top-coating and metallizing process, Celplast is ready to partner with converters to make their next-generation laminates with DURAMET® a commercial success.
