Honeywell Specialty Materials: Moisture-barrier film

Using new fluoropolymer materials, HydroBlock industrial-grade barrier films from Honeywell are designed for products and applications that require a high level of moisture protection.

FILED IN:  Package Component  > Films

Said to provide moisture barrier performance at a lower cost than traditional industrial barrier films, the high clarity and strength of the film makes it practical for a wide variety of applications.  In addition to moisture barrier, the material also offers resistance to chemicals, low temperatures, odors, and ultraviolet light.

The new polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE) film is a more cost-effective alternative to fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) and polyvinyldene fluoride (PVDF) films, and provides a higher moisture barrier and equal chemical resistance. It is not intended for use in food or medical applications.
