The base film CareFoil-PAP excels at Oxygen, Gas, Moisture, and light blocking. Specialized versions of this material can have increased heat and freezer storage characteristics.
Overall CareFoil-PAP is a extremely high barrier material. The incorporation of Aluminum foil into the PET AL PE lamination gives the material a high barrier potential.
CareFoil-PAP is our high barrier film structure which incorporates encapsulated aluminum foil as the barrier layer of this film. The exterior high grade PET serves as a great base for printed bags. The interior PE sealant layer is non-reactive and is heat sealable. CareFoil-PAP is great for FDA applications where long shelf life, or susceptibility to spoilage is a concern.
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.
Use Case Profile
Encapsulated Aluminum is great for Freeze Dried Fruit
Freeze dried fruit is a growing market segment. Storage, and handling of freeze dried foods can be a real challenge.
The incorporation of aluminum foil into the film structure reduces the migration of moisture and oxygen creating something very similar to a flexible aluminum can.
