APET rigid films (Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate) films are a type of plastic film made from the polymer polyethylene terephthalate, which is commonly used for various packaging and industrial applications. Here’s an overview of our products and their uses:
1. Clarity and Transparency: APET rigid films are known for their excellent clarity and transparency. They offer a glass-like appearance, making them ideal for showcasing products. This optical clarity is often used in packaging where the visibility of the enclosed item is important, such as blister packaging for consumer goods.
2. Strength and Durability: APET rigid films are strong and have good tensile strength. They can resist tearing and puncturing, which makes them suitable for packaging applications where the contents need protection from external factors, such as moisture or physical damage.
3. Barrier Properties: While not as effective as some other materials like aluminum or metallized films, APET rigid films do offer some barrier properties. They can provide a moderate level of protection against moisture, oxygen, and UV light, making them useful for products that need a certain level of preservation.
4. Thermoforming: APET can be easily thermoformed, which means they can be heated and molded into different shapes. This makes them a popular choice for blister packaging, clamshells, and other forms of retail packaging where product visibility and protection are important.
5. Food Packaging: APET are commonly used in the food packaging industry. They are often seen in the production of trays for packaging fresh fruits, vegetables, salads, and deli items. The transparency of APET films allows consumers to see the contents, and their durability helps protect the food.
6. Medical and Pharmaceutical Packaging: Our films are used in the packaging of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare products. Their strength and ability to maintain a sterile environment make them suitable for these applications.
7. Graphics and Printing: films are printable, allowing for branding and labeling on packaging materials. This makes them valuable for marketing and promotional purposes.
8. Eco-Friendly Considerations: APET is considered a more environmentally friendly plastic option than some others. It is recyclable, and recycled APET rigid films is used to make a variety of products, including new packaging materials.
In summary, APET are versatile plastic films known for their clarity, strength, and suitability for a wide range of packaging applications. They are commonly used in the food, medical, and retail industries where product visibility, protection, and aesthetics are important. Additionally, their recyclability aligns with growing environmental concerns in packaging.
