PLA/VMPLA/PLA Lamination Overview
This film is a multi-layer Poly-Lactic based laminated compostable metalized film providing enhanced barrier to oxygen and moisture over un-metallized PLA with an attractive price point and more reliable supply chain than other high barrier compostable films. Great for plate printing.
This FDA approved film has minimal stretch due to the orientation of layers during the laminating process. The material consists of a lamination of PLA/MetalizedPLA/PLA.
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.
