The film is recommended to be laminated with a sealant layer.
Its properties include high tensile strength, chemical stability, dimensional integrity, and transparency. It is an updated version of its existing grade of F-TFP. Additionally, this film can be corona treated on both sides or on a single side to enable wettability for ink adhesion while printing. A recent sample was approved by an LLP named Print and Pack of Uzbekistan, and UFlex produced 36 MT quantities of 12 microns, 15 microns and 19 microns for the LLP.
The ‘F-POX’ Excellent Oxygen and Moisture Barrier Transparent BOPET Film offers oxygen (0.5 cc/m2/day) and moisture barrier (2.0 gm/m2/day). This is said to be superior product than PVDC coated PET film and EVOH PET film.
