Metalized Pet Film

Metalized PET film, also known as metallized PET film or metallized polyester film, is a type of packaging material that is widely used in various industries. PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate, which is a thermoplastic polymer resin.

The metalized PET film is created by depositing a thin layer of metal, typically aluminum, onto one side of the PET film substrate. This metal layer imparts specific properties to the film, making it suitable for a variety of applications. The metal coating is applied through a vacuum metallization process, where the metal is vaporized and then condenses onto the PET film's surface, forming a thin and uniform layer.

Some key characteristics and advantages of metalized PET film include:

1. Barrier Properties: The metal layer provides excellent barrier properties against moisture, oxygen, and light, making it an ideal choice for preserving the freshness and extending the shelf life of products such as food, pharmaceuticals, and electronics.

2. Reflectivity: The metalized surface reflects light and heat, making it suitable for applications like insulation and radiant barriers.

3. Aesthetics: The shiny, reflective appearance of metalized PET film can enhance the visual appeal of products and packaging, making them stand out on store shelves.

4. Electrical Properties: The metal layer can provide certain electrical properties, making it useful in electronic applications and as a conductor for specialized purposes.

5. Heat Sealability: Metalized PET film can often be heat sealed, allowing for secure packaging and creating pouches or bags for various products.

6. Lightweight: PET is a lightweight material, and the metal coating is generally very thin, so the overall weight of the metalized PET film is still relatively low.

Due to its versatility, metalized PET film is used in packaging applications for snacks, candies, coffee, tea, pharmaceuticals, and more. It is also employed in industrial and decorative applications, such as flexible ducting, insulation, gift wrapping, and holographic products.

Keep in mind that the specific properties and applications of metalized PET film can vary depending on the thickness of the film, the type of metal used for metallization, and any additional coatings or treatments applied to the film.

What is metalized pet film ?

Metalized polyester film, known as metalized PET film, met PET film, or aluminized PET film, is a type of plastic film coated with a layer of aluminum particles on one side. The degree of aluminum coating determines the level of tinting achieved. This aluminized PET film exhibits exceptional physical, mechanical, optical, thermal, electrical, and chemical properties, making it highly suitable for numerous specialized applications.

Metallized PET Film is a flexible packaging material made of Vacuum Metallized Polyester Film coated with a thin layer of metallic aluminum. The PET film used as the base is treated with corona on one side. Through high-temperature processing under a high vacuum, the aluminum is evaporated, creating the metalized PET film. This versatile material finds extensive applications in printing, lamination, food packaging, decorations, construction, and specialty uses like insulation and electronics.

There are various types of metallized PET film, including Heat Seal Metallized Film, High Barrier & High Adhesion Metallized Film, Matte Metallized Film, White Metallized Film, Copper, and Gold Colored Metallized PET. It is a cost-effective and visually appealing packaging material with exceptional performance, making it highly practical for a wide range of applications.
