HOSTAPHAN® polyester films for metallisation
Metallisation is the coating of a material (e.g. film or paper) with a thin metal layer by a high vacuum process.
In packaging, metallisation plays an important role due to the good barrier effect. The goal is to protect the package contents from external influences and keep the aromas inside the package. This is achieved through metallised HOSTAPHAN® types that achieve excellent barriers to air, water vapour, oxygen and aromas.
HOSTAPHAN® films offer inherently good barrier properties and are usually used in metallised form in duplex or triplex laminates.
Metallised HOSTAPHAN® films offer these advantages:
- excellent barrier
- good metal adhesion
- high temperature resistance
- good mechanical strength
- brilliant appearance
- flexible food packaging
- carton laminates
