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.
PET/VMPET/PE is a good general use three-layer film . Cost effective with medium-high barrier properties, CareSilver-PVP provides a better barrier than most clear films.
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/VMPET/PE is a great choice for many food products.
Granola, snacks, and other food items are a great use for Care-Silver-PVP. In the case of granola a full color CMYK lifestyle photo of granola displays well with CareSilver-PVP as its base material.
