Product Description

Mylar® 853 is a biaxially oriented, co-extruded polyester film with a layer of amorphous heat-sealable polyester on one surface and a print receptive treatment on the other. It is normally used as a printed lidding film where strong, permanent seals are required. Mylar® 853 can be heat-sealed to itself, APET/CPET trays, APET coated board, PVdC, PVC, paper and aluminium foil. Excellent ‘hot-tack’ sealing properties can be achieved in the sealing range of 140°C to 220°C. Ideal for use as a lidding film for dual-ovenable ready meals, produce packs and bakery products, it can withstand temperatures from -70°C to 220°C.
