In addition to good barrier properties, the new film offers several advantages to competitive laminations in the marketplace, including the ability to produce 2-sided print. The co. can print 10-color process jobs using a state-of-the-art impression drum press, so the front side can be used for high-end consumer graphics while the back side can feature print that will not show through the front-side artwork. Lidstock can be sealed around the face of a tray leaving a corner exposed for opening. Also features good strength characteristics that eliminate film tear upon opening, and good puncture-resistance to minimize retailer rejection due to packaging failure. Ideal for products such as razors, toothbrushes, toiletries, food items, room freshener gels, etc., that are designed as stand-up shelf items or with hanging profiles.
