CareSilver-PVP is a PET/VMPET/PE barrier lamiation film that serves as a great base for printed bags, and provides a quality general use barrier to protect the contents from oxidation, moisture, and premature spoilage. CareSilver, is a 3-layer lamination structure consisting of PET, Vapor Metalized Polyethylene Terephthalate, and PE. It is the primary line of Vapor Metalized polyethylene Terephthalate (VMPET) or Mylar films. 

As with most of CarePac's barrier films, CareSilver-PVP is designed for FDA applications (foods and beverages). CareSilver-PVP is free of toxins such as TSE, Sulfur, Phthalates, and BPA. It is specifically designed to maintain the freshness of FDA Food Items like dried goods, snacks & chips, pet food (cats, birds, and all kinds of dog breeds), and its low thermal permeability rate, as well as the UV resistance.
