This FDA approved film is used extensively in food industry where good MVTR and OTR is required and easy entry into pouch is necessary. The brown natural Kraft exterior makes the structure rigid, but it tears easily in both directions. The foil provides excellent barrier to extend shelf life and protect the taste profile. The polyethylene sealant layer is extruded brown to mask the color of the foil. This unique design element makes the PF500 BRN a good fit for customers that do not want to see foil in their packaging but need the protection that it exhibits.
It can be converted in many ways: 2-seal pouch, 3-seal pouch, side gusset, stand up pouch and tubing. Features include: recloseable zipper, tear notch, round hang hole, and sombrero hang hole. The PF500 BRN can also be surface printed and is available to web widths of 48”.
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.

CareKraft-KP is a kraft paper PE lamination which is not as high of a barrier as KAP but provides a even more natural look and feel. The material is often used for low barrier applications and is a lower cost point than CareKraft-KAP.
CareFoil-PAP is an encapsulated aluminum foil based material with a similar high barrier potential as CareKraft-KAP but with a PET exterior print layer.
