Camvac launches new multi
Camvac has developed a multi-layered metallised laminate, which it says features light, moisture and gas barrier that maintains high performance throughout the supply chain.
The metallised and transparent barrier films and laminates specialist said Camfoil was created as an alternative to aluminium foil, suitable for multiple flexible packaging applications.
Camvac said the material has also been engineered for its heat seal characteristics – the film is tailored to heat seal through contamination making it ideal for powdered products such as milk and infant formula, protein and whey powders. It’s also perfect for foodstuffs such as peanuts and other snacks that require robust light and gas barriers.
Typical consumer end applications for Camfoil include bags, sachets, pouches and lidding film for products as wide-ranging as dry food, dry powder packaging and bulk shipment of high oxygen and moisture-sensitive products.
It is available as a triplex extreme barrier laminate for further conversion downstream, and Camvac can supply a print-receptive finished goods laminate with a range of sealant webs, including PE, PET, CPP and OPP.
Gary Chalkley, director of product development, said: “Camfoil removes the risk of pin-holing while providing an excellent gas and water vapour barrier and providing the potential to extend product shelf-life. It’s eminently suitable for extreme applications, for example vacuum insulation panels that contain silica or liquid cleaning products, as well as regular and powdered foodstuffs.”Waqas Qureshi
