  • OPP: Good moisture barrier, good low-temperature resistance, good light barrier, and good stiffness. Applications include dry products, biscuits, popsicles, and chocolates.
  • VMPET: Vacuum Metalized Polyester Film, vacuum metalized film is usually designated to mean the polymer films with the surface deposited a thin layer of metal, usually aluminum in flexible packaging applications, through vacuum depositing
  • LLDPE: Linear low-density polyethylene. Tougher than LDPE and has better heat seal strength but has higher haze.
  • PE: Polyethylene: A simple thermoplastic polymer of ethylene. Highly puncture and tear resistant. Not affected by extreme temperatures. Does not possess barrier properties. Good clarity.
  • PET: Polyester, (Polyethylene Terephthalate): Tough, temperature resistant polymer. Biaxially oriented PET film is used in laminates for packaging, where it provides strength, stiffness, and temperature resistance. It is usually combined with other films for heat-seal ability and improved barrier properties
  • FOIL (AL or ALU): A thin gauge (6-12 microns) aluminum foil laminated to plastic films to provide maximum oxygen, aroma, and water vapor barrier properties. Although it is by far the best barrier material, it is increasingly being replaced by metalized films, (see MET-PET, MET-OPP, and VMPET) because of cost.
