Reliable Performance

Reliable during processing

Barrier films used for lamination can suffer stress during the production process. Even if stretched during processing, the special coatings on KURARISTER™ maintain their barrier properties.

The types of coatings common in other barrier films are more easily damaged, which can result in the loss of barrier properties in the final package. KURARISTER™ also has excellent scratch resistance, reducing the possible effects of abrasion that can occur during processing and handling. Since KURARISTER™ is coated on both sides instead of just one its functional barrier properties are more secure.

Reliable before and after retort

Moisture has little effect on the barrier properties of KURARISTER™, which remain superior to those of standard transparent metallised films. This difference widens after retort treatment since, unlike some metallised films, KURARISTER™  maintains its original barrier properties.

Reliable during different kinds of retort treatment

Some coated films are more sensitive to certain kinds of retort treatment, resulting in a loss of barrier properties. KURARISTER™ gives much more flexibility and choice when choosing retort treatment, and retains its barrier and optical properties during hot water, spray and even steam retort processes.

Easy processing

Since KURARISTER™has its special coating on both sides, curling is not a concern making the film easy to handle. Slip properties are similar to those of PET film. Unlike some oxide coated films, the barrier coating layers on KURARISTER™
will not lose their properties if flexed, either during processing or during transport and handling of the final package.

Easy printing

Both solvent-based and water-based inks can be used for printing or coating directly onto KURARISTER™.
No corona or other special surface treatment is required.
