CareClear-PP (PET/PE is a economical general use clear polyester based barrier material. The combination of Polyethylene Terephthalate and PE in the form of LLDPE provides strength and clarity in a heat sealable printable film. All while providing a economical price point. 

Barrier Properties

The barrier properties of PET/PE are suitable form many applications and fall squarely in the mid-range of barrier films. CareClear-PP can provide sufficient barrier to keep many products fresh for the full shelf life expectancy. 

Some applications not suitable for PET/PE would involve the requirement for light barrier, as PET/PE is a clear film, that even when printed will not prevent light exposure. 

Note: The performance of any film will be influenced by a number of factors and testing must always be performed to ensure the film meets the use.
