Our APET films are widely used for packaging consumer goods, electrical accessories and medical products

Cupcakes Salad Sandwich Stacked APET Single Serve Cupcake Container

Our APET films are widely used for packaging consumer goods, electrical accessories, and medical products. In packaging applications, our custom APET films act as excellent barriers to acids and strong oxidizers. Available in thicknesses ranging from 0.008” to 0.080”, the APET films also exhibit good resistance to grease, fat, and oils. The resistance characteristics make our polyester films best suited for food packaging applications, as they do not absorb flavors or impart off-tastes.

Flexibility as well as high temperature and impact resistivity are some significant features of our APET sheet. APET films are available in black, white, as well as custom colors.

Depending on your specific packaging and laminating needs, APET sheet can be offered in translucent, opaque, and transparent finishes. Through special JIT programs, we meet your fast delivery requirements.
