Nowrin Abedin, product development engineer at Celplast Metallized Products, co-presents a paper with Larry Jopko of Dow at the TAPPI Barrier Symposium at ICE in Orlando, Fla., entitled “How good is your barrier packaging in the real world?” This paper focuses on barrier properties and lamination bond strengths of two-ply and three-ply metallized film structures, both before and after gelbo flexing. Two different high-barrier metallized films were examined: Barrier Sealant metallized PE and Metacoated PET. Three different adhesive systems were evaluated: solvent-based, solventless and water-based. The Barrier Sealant in a two-ply structure, laminated to clear PET, gave the best performance in terms of retaining barrier properties after Gelbo flexing.
Come meet Nowrin and the rest of the Celplast team at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, Booth #6609.
