"With ClearFoil Z, we are able to provide barrier properties 100 times better than those typically found with non-foil structures," explains Doug Dodrill, vice president of technology. "ClearFoil X's barrier properties are approximately 10 times better. Because pinholes are inherently present in thin-gauge foils, they can impact barrier properties. As a result, ClearFoil X and Z can outperform structures made from the most common foils."
The new barrier films achieve their properties via aluminum oxide-coated polyester that can be either laminated or extrusion-coated with any of Rollprint's proprietary sealant technologies for added functionality, the company says. "ClearFoil X and Z are ideal for IV bag overwrap, combination drug/device products and sensitive devices such as absorbable sutures and tissue," Dodrill says. "They are well-suited to pharmaceutical applications where keeping a tight tolerance on oxygen and moisture ingress are critical. These products target applications where oxidation or small changes in ingredient ratios compromise efficacy or performance. Additionally, the films can be used for moisture and oxygen-sensitive food applications." Another advantage is that structures without aluminum foil do not interfere with metal detectors and do not compromise RFID devices, he notes. www.rollprint.com.
