PET FILM

Polyester film is one of the most widely used plastic films in the world today. Its unique versatility allows it to be used in a wide range of applications ranging from food & drug packaging, pressure sensitive tapes, graphic arts and industrial and electrical goods. Based on it’s great balance of properties including high thermal stability, mechanical strength, chemical inertness and excellent barrier properties; polyester film is the product of choice for many converters. As the demand for more and more complex flexible packaging grows (including retort packaging), so does the demand for PET.
