FILMtech, one of the leading suppliers of transparent and metalized barrier films, has developed SEMG, a process for enhancing adhesion and barrier of metalized films.
The company currently offers three metalized products available utilizing the proprietary technology, a metalized OPP (FT 709) and two metalized PET films (FT 164 and FT 264). Films undergoing the SEMG process exhibit enhanced barrier properties and adhesion values over 1,200 grams.
‘Over the last four years, we have invested in state-of-the-art metalizing equipment, and this has provided a development platform for modifying the surface of various polymer films, which has resulted in our process called SEMG,’ commented Paul Ghejan, engineering manager at FILMtech.
FILMtech, founded in 2001 as a manufacturer of metalized films for the packaging and converting industries, has grown to provide products and services for the food and pet food packaging, construction, agricultural, aerospace, printing, labeling, and industrial tapes markets. It is the exclusive North American licensee of CeramAlox clear barrier products.
