As the pressure on converters to reduce costs increases in the flexible packaging industry, they have to rely on film suppliers to develop new and more economical products that still maintain performance. Metallized films have historically had some success in replacing foil for reasons such as esthetics and improved barrier properties. As the price of ingot continues to increase, metallized films are now starting to make head way in applications that have historically been foil for economic reasons.

This study examines the economic value of metallized film compared to foil by examining the impact of material cost, productivity savings, and inventory. The study will also demonstrate that you can reduce your overall package cost using metallized film over foil and still maintain performance integrity.
