Coextruded Films

Coextruded films provide in one film what once required multiple layers of film to achieve. Not only does this reduce the thickness of the final film, it also saves money. They offer an effective way to combine the performance characteristics of several types of films materials to meet many needs. With coextrusion, very thin layers of different materials are created within a film. This reduces the amount of resin needed, especially compared to multiple layers of monfilm. For example, you might require an outer layer designed for abrasion resistance and printability, with a strong sealant inner layer designed for shipping prescription medications or one that can have direct contact with food.
