High Barrier film is a polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE) material used extensively in healthcare packaging. Usually laminated to a base film, High Barrier laminates provide a wide range of gauges to allow flexibility when selecting the optimum barrier level in a given application. High Barrier film is crystal clear, biochemically inert, chemical-resistant, nonflammable, a plasticizer and stabilizer-free. High Barrier laminates do not yellow, crack or deteriorate over time. High Barrier film’s high moisture barrier properties offer ease of distribution to all climates and environments, especially Zone 4 Tropical locations.
