Dual Surface HOSTAPHAN® polyester films

Often the surface properties of a film play a vital role in its applications. Special optical effects like holograms require special surfaces. In other processes, the surface characteristics of HOSTAPHAN® are transferred to other materials. The static and dynamic friction of a surface can be specially designed to achieve sticking or slipping properties between two surfaces as desired.


Our “dual surface” films have two different surfaces that we can fine-tune independently of one another.

Typical applications for “Dual Surface” HOSTAPHAN® polyester films:
  • packaging
  • large sacks for products such as animal feed or soil
  • holograms
  • process film to create a particular surface structure

HOSTAPHAN® RD – Polyester film with one smooth, blocking side

One of the transparent film HOSTAPHAN® RD is very smooth and exhibits high static and dynamic friction (COF) as well as high gloss. The other side slips normally and thus allows easy processing. HOSTAPHAN® RD is approved for food contact in the EU and the USA.

Thickness range in µm: 12, 23

Available with chemical pre-treatment for adhesion promotion.

HOSTAPHAN® RDO – Polyester film with one very smooth side

In comparison to HOSTAPHAN® RD, HOSTAPHAN® RDO is even glossier or shinier on its smooth side. Here too, the back side is designed with a low coefficient of friction for easy processability. This film is approved for food contact in the EU and the USA.

Thickness range in µm: 12, 50, 75

HOSTAPHAN® MPK – One-side matte polyester film with high contact transparency

HOSTAPHAN® MPK is a coextruded 3-layer film with a rough and a smooth surface. The special layer design low a matte appearance together with crisp, high contrast printed images. The film is particularly suitable for reverse-side printing. HOSTAPHAN® MPK is approved for food contact in the EU and the USA.

Thickness range in µm: 12, 36

Available with chemical pre-treatment for adhesion promotion.

HOSTAPHAN® MPKN – One side matte polyester film for stand-up pouches

HOSTAPHAN® MPKN was especially developed for use in stand-up pouches. As with HOSTAPHAN® MPK, one side is matte, the other smooth. HOSTAPHAN® MPKN is approved for food contact in the EU and the USA.

Thickness range in µm: 12

Available with chemical pre-treatment for adhesion promotion.
