Crosslinked film – Innovative packaging solutions
The world of packaging technology is constantly evolving and looking for ways to make products more efficient, safe and environmentally friendly. Electronically crosslinked films are among the most advanced materials in this field, offering a wide range of benefits that make them very attractive for different applications and product types.
Electronically crosslinked films: advantages and properties
Electronically crosslinked films undergo a treatment process with electron beams that changes their molecular structure and creates crosslinks between the molecules. This transformation brings a number of advantages:
1. increased strength and durability: cross-linked films have higher tensile, tear and puncture resistance, making packaged products better protected and less susceptible to damage.
2. improved heat resistance: electronically crosslinked films maintain their integrity at high temperatures, making them ideal for applications such as vacuum sealing or sterilization.
3. improved chemical resistance: these films are more resistant to chemicals, so they are not damaged or deformed when in contact with aggressive substances.
4. improved barrier properties: crosslinked films offer improved gas and moisture barrier properties, making them an excellent choice for packaging food and other items that need to be protected from oxidation and moisture.
5. environmental friendliness: thanks to their increased strength and durability, crosslinked films can be produced in thinner thicknesses, resulting in lower material consumption. They are also often more recyclable compared to conventional plastic films.
Areas of application for electronically crosslinked film as an innovative packaging solution
Due to their exceptional properties, crosslinked films find a wide range of applications in the packaging industry, including:
- Food packaging: They are used to package fresh produce, frozen foods, baked goods, beverages and more
- Pharmaceutical packaging: Crosslinked films are ideal for securing pharmaceuticals, as they provide an excellent barrier against moisture and oxygen while withstanding varying temperatures.
- Industrial Packaging: Electronics, machine parts, chemicals and other industrial products that require rugged protection can be efficiently packaged with crosslinked films.
- Cosmetic packaging: Their high chemical resistance and heat tolerance make them well suited for packaging cosmetic products.
In summary, crosslinked films are a versatile packaging solution that can meet a wide range of application requirements thanks to their exceptional properties.
