This paper illustrates new solutions to upgrade metallized film properties to meet the demand of expanding their applications or to replace existing materials with more economical and environment friendly ones. It will describe and discuss industrial experience and results to achieve high barrier, metal adhesion and improved workability of popular metallized films including Bopp and cpp by using film surfaces treatment or modifications, pre and post coating and optimizing the polymer composition for the vacuum deposited process.
