PolarShield™ PET (formerly Printkote® PET)
A worthy option when moisture isn’t an issue.
When you desire strength and wet conditions aren’t a factor, turn to PolarShield™ PET. It’s a perfect choice for frozen and bakery applications. Use it to create packages capable of going from shelf or freezer directly to a conventional or microwave oven. This eliminates excess packaging expenses. Beyond performance, PolarShield PET also looks attractive enough for consumers to take to their dining table.
