has developed a newfilm,
, which
is a high barrier metalized film, with both sides treated. The DZ406 was proposed, and successfully tested, as
it is suitable for multi-layer (3+) sandwich laminations. The new vacuum tea pack is now produced with TSS/
DZ406/PE, whereas our DZ406 replaced the aluminum foil, and the TSS replaced the PET film.
There are multiple applications for the DZ406:
• Low concentrated ketchup sachets
• Shampoo sachets
• Powdered tea vacuum packs for one year shelf life packs.
And in all of the above product structures, the DZ406 successfully
passed the following tests:
• Shelf life from 15 to 18 months, specifically in the shampoo sachets
• Barrier properties
• Product weight change of packaged product
• Compatibility with the product contents
• Packaging feasibility on the production machine
• Laminated material properties.
