Phoenix "PET-M E7070" is a high barrier, metallized, biaxially oriented polyester film. It offers excellent gas barrier, moisture barrier and light barrier properties on a 35 gauge base sheet of PET E5100. "PET M" provides good puncture and improved flex crack resistance in comparison to 48 gauge metallized polyester films. This metallized, ultra-high yield polyester film exhibits the following features:

  • Excellent gas, moisture and light barriers
  • 33% source reduction/yield improvement versus 48 gauge polyester films
  • Better flex crack resistance versus thicker polyester films
  • Excellent dimensional stability reduces film shrinkage during processing
