Some of our films will be listed in sections below. Please contact us directly if you have questions about the suitability of a certain film for your process and are ready to get started.

Polyvinylidene chloride (PVdC)

PVdC Pacakged ItemsSKC’s PVdC coated film is a polyester film that has high mechanical strength, excellent dimensional stability, thermal resistance and transparency in addition to great chemical resistance. Our PVdC polyester film has excellent thermal adhesion and printability. This film also reduces air permeability and the moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) compared to typical PET film. It is used as a high-functioning packaging material and is heat sealable. Some additional film information is as follows:

  • Environmentally-friendly – SKC PVdC coated film has a water-based coating with no residual solvent.
  • Excellent Processibility – SKC PVdC coated film has uniform thickness, is in-line coated and has excellent printability compared to off-line coated products.
  • Excellent Adhesion between the PVdC and PET Layers – SKC’s PVdC coated polyester film does not use a primer therefore delaminating is not an issue.
  • Multiple Uses – Our PVdC coated polyester film is typically used for packaging processed meat, cheeses, snacks, bread and instant foods.

Shrinkable

Shrinkable FilmSKC’s shrinkable film is a polyester film that adheres to an assortment of packaging. It is typically used for labeling of containers made from materials such as PET, PS, PE, glass, and cans. Some of the characteristics are…

  • Optically Excellent – The clarity of this film enables eye catching graphics when printed.
  • Great Processibility – This film has a uniform thickness and is dimensionally stable. It is a high performance film that works very well in the printing, slitting, sealing and labeling processes. Post processing, this film maintains its profile which results in an outstanding finished product.
  • Superb Stability at Room Temperature – These films will not shrink when stored, or transported at room temperature thus saving on special transport, or cooling bills.
  • High Temperature Resistant – At high processing temperatures, the stable characteristics of this film are evident. Whether used as a label, or cap seal the end product is one that can be depended on to meet, or exceed expectations of quality.

 


Twistable

Twistable PictureSKC’s twistable film is a polyester film that is highly twistable. This film is suitable for packing candies, chocolates and caramels that require twisted wrappers. It is widely used for many products.  Key characteristics of SKC twistable film are:

  • Printability – SKC’s twistable film has excellent thickness uniformity, is available in wide-widths, and has good dimensional stability. It is easy to print on and productivity can be improved substantially by using it versus traditional materials.
  • Environmental Friendly – SKC’s twistable film is environmentally responsible and complies with FDA standards.The film can offer cost savings as it can be printed on the outside rather than the inside.
