1. PET Films
Polyester film commonly known as PET film is a versatile film, which has a vast range of applications. The film provides a strong barrier to moisture, odour and gases making it suitable for use in flexible packaging. Its high tensile strength, thermal and chemical stability makes it suitable for a multitude of applications in electric insulation, office supplies, graphic arts, magnetic media imaging, metallic yarn and industrial applications.
2. BOPP Films
Polypropylene film commonly known as BOPP is widely used for food packaging, textile bags, overwraps for cigarette and personal products, adhesive tapes and labels. BOPP film possesses dimensional stability, high tensile strength, good stiffness, high clarity, excellent printability and most importantly, heat sealability.
