High Barrier Films

Protection is key

Ensuring products reach the consumer in pristine condition continues to be the key concern for many Brands.  This means that maintaining the product’s quality throughout its shelf life is important and in some instances, shelf life expansion is desirable to prevent food waste.

For many foods and particularly dried foods, moisture ingress may be detrimental causing the product to lose its crispiness.  Other food ingredients are affected by oxygen ingress causing rancidity and flavour changes.  In both instances the packaging needs to have a barrier to water vapour and gases to prevent product deterioration.  In addition, delicate aromas need to be maintained within the pack and care must be taken to avoid migratory chemical contamination from mineral oils.

Our Propafilm™ film range includes a wide range of barrier films that can prevent these situations, demonstrating excellent moisture and gas barrier to meet specific requirements. They also offer other properties which are beneficial in a variety of applications such as anti-static which can enhance machinability and prevent dust attraction.  Whether you need protection from moisture, oxygen or chemicals, or barrier films that can run fast, we have a solution.

Our latest addition to the high barrier film range is Propafilm™ Strata a range of mono material web structures that have been independently certified recyclable.  The film has been designed to extend shelf life and reduce food waste, by giving your product ultimate protection, even at high humidity.
