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.
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.
PET/PE was a good candidate for this use.
The customer required a bag which could be printed with logos and graphics, but allowed the product inside to be seen by the consumer. The high clarity of PET/PE allowed the viewing window to built into the art.
Transparent lamination of PET and LLDPE for use in a wide variety of packaging applications.

Here are some common uses of this film.
CareClear-PC provides some enhancement to heat potential with the use of Cast PP but also yields a very clear bag when used in thin film thicknesses.
CareClear-PNP is a enhanced version of CareClear-PP which includes the addition of Nylon to increase certain barrier characteristics and strength for liquid and powder applications.
PVDC coated PET provided extra barrier for applications which need enhanced WVTR and OTR, with the greatest increase being for the OTR barrier.
