Why Choose CareSilver Pouches?

Food suppliers choose PET VMPET PE film for its variety of benefits, which include its versatility, strength, and non-toxicity. This bag material can be used in the freezer and heated and will protect the food within from both extreme heat and extreme cold. In addition, it’s a great base for printing. Since it’s opaque in nature, VMPET allows color and other stylized elements to really shine through.

Though it’s commonly used to package meat, vegetables, fruits, rice, snacks, coffee, sundries, and other food and pantry items, PET VMPET can also be used to package, medicine, and cosmetics, among other common household items.

What is PET VMPET PE Packaging Foil?

Short for Vacuum Metalized Polyethylene Terephthalate, VMPET is often referred to as METPET or MET/PET, and PET VMPET PE Packaging Foil consists of three different layers: an outer PET layer, a middle VMPET layer, and an inner low density polyethylene layer. Continue reading to learn more about each of the different packaging layers.

Outer PET Layer

This outer layer adds strength and, if you want to print your packaging,  this is the layer that is printed.

Middle VMPET Layer

This layer is constructed of vapor metalized MET/PET and is a very similar material to that of a mylar balloon. This foil layer acts as a barrier film and support layer. It provides a water-resistant surface that prevents water from penetrating what’s within. 

Inner LDPE Layer

This metallized layer works as a sealing layer and, quite literally, seals the other two layers to each other. It is food safe and heat sealable.

What is PET VMPET PE Typically Used For?
