Metallized plastic Films
One of the most fascinating and attractive colorings used in the printing and packaging industries, is metallized (metallic) colors, which due to the beautiful color, have given a unique attraction to various types of packages. These metallic colors are used for a variety of applications, such as cardboard cake (cookie) trays, candlesticks, birthday streamers, beautiful fantasy boxes, and more.
Metallized wrappers used in the packaging industries can be based on CPP, OPP, BOPP, BOPET, PVC, etc., or a combination of these layers, depending on what application they will be used for.
The minimum thickness of these wrappers is 8 microns and they cover almost all color spectra.
Gold, Silver and Other Metallic Colors Papers and Cardboards
One of the applications of metalized color films is in the form of the lamination of papers and cardboards, which are used for packaging wraps for tea, coffee, natural herbal teas, cigarettes, chewing gums, chocolates, festival decorations, etc.
The combination of these types of wrappers with a thin foil of aluminum is used for more specialized packaging applications.
Sealable Golden, Silver and Other Metallic Color Films
These types of metallic films and wrappers are also sealable, and their sealing has a very high strength. They can also be resistant to air and water vapor permeation.
The compounds used in this areas include polyester-polyethylene (PET-PE), PVC-polyethylene (PVC-PE), Polyvinylidene chloride-polyethylene (PVDC-PE), or a combination of these polymers with ethylene‑vinyl acetate (EVA).
The packaging of pickles, cucumbers, lemon juice, sachet packaging and other attractive and fancy packaging can be mentioned as some of the applications of this category.
