In-Vacuum Flexo Top-Coating on Metallized Film: Commercial Opportunities

Dante Ferrari
Celplast Metallized Products Limited

With the manufacturing process scaling up and food contact compliance achieved, Celplast’s top-coated metallized films have become increasingly viable to use in a variety of commercial high barrier flexible packaging applications. Over the past year, Celplast has continued to work with industry partners to generate barrier and bond strength data on these top-coated metallized films. This data has been generated in various laminations, showing the use of these films to replace or eliminate layers in existing commercial applications.
