Packaging

For packaging applications, polyester film has several advantages over other commonly used plastic films: Superior mechanical properties such as stiffness, tear and puncture resistance; temperature range from -40°C to 220°C; flavour barrier to preserve freshness; excellent clarity and a flat uniform surface to aid conversion.

Heat sealable polyester films offer a single web packaging solution where polyester is required. Typical applications are the lidding of ready meal trays, sandwich packs, packaging of fresh produce, convenience food and flow wrapping.
