Barrier film

Featuring Dow Chemical Co.'s Saran™ PVDC resin, the co. offers coextruded, wide-width, clear barrier film. It's suitable for standard converting equipment producing laminations and/or rollstock for end-use packaging applications such as coffee, cheese, soup, snack foods, cereal, processed meats, pet food and medical products. Targeted for high-oxygen-barrier applications that are subjected to moisture, the films are ideal for applications where flex cracking is an issue, the co. says. Also providing flavor and aroma barriers, the coextrusions are microwaveable and can be used in conjunction with other barrier resins to accommodate additional oxygen barrier or toughness properties. The film's thickness can be varied to produce longer shelf life, depending on the application.
