Rollprint Packaging Products Inc. (MD&M West Booth 1856) has added two new products to its transparent ClearFoil line. With the introduction of ClearFoil X and ClearFoil Z, clear ultra-high barrier packaging options can now replace aluminum foil structures for those very demanding applications. ClearFoil Z is the first transparent, non-aluminum foil, flexible structure to reach ultra-high oxygen (O2) barrier properties of 0.0008 cc/100 in2/24 hrs and moisture barrier properties of 0.0008 g/100 in2/24 hrs. ClearFoil X performs at 0.004 cc/100 in2/24 hrs and 0.004 g/100 in2/24 hrs, respectively. The two new barrier films achieve the properties via aluminum oxide-coated polyester which can be either laminated or extrusion-coated with any of Rollprint’s proprietary sealant technologies for added functionality. They are ideal for IV bag overwrap, combination drug/device products, and sensitive devices such as absorbable sutures and tissue.
