Mono APET film with high or mid barriers . A sustainable approach to exclude PE from APET laminate sheet and make it recyclable. The main challenge is to maintain the oxygen barriers as with PE/EVOH or even higher. This can already be reached by our newest development. Together with our top lidding solutions, your packaging can be produced as fully recyclable, downgauge its overall thickness and weight.
Mono APET stands for “Mono-Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate.” It is a type of thermoplastic material commonly used in the packaging industry. Here’s a breakdown of what Mono APET is and its typical uses:
1. Composition: Mono APET is a type of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic that is amorphous in structure, which means it lacks a regular, crystalline arrangement of molecules. This gives it certain properties that are different from its crystalline counterpart, known as CPET (Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate).
2. Characteristics: Mono APET has several desirable characteristics for packaging applications:
3. Common Uses: Mono APET is often used for various packaging applications, including:
Overall, Mono APET is favored for its clarity, rigidity, and heat resistance, making it a popular choice for a wide range of packaging applications where product visibility and protection are important considerations.
