TORONTO—Canadian Packaging magazine visits Celplast Metallized Products Limited at its Toronto facility on September 13, 2017, for the debut of Celplast’s revolutionary DURAMET top-coated metallized PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) 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 four-ply PET/foil/nylon/CPP (Cast polypropylene) adhesive laminates, three-ply PET/DURAMET/CPP adhesive laminates have achieved similar barrier and bond results to the four-ply foil structure.
Mike “Pinball” Clemons provided the event’s opening remarks. Clemons was a running back and kick returner with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL (Canadian Football League) between 1989-2000, and is in the CFL Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.
