Skin packaging films made from Dupont™ Surlyn® are an attractive, lightweight alternative to clamshell and blister packaging.
Surlyn® is used for skin packing onto coated boards where high clarity and toughness are required. Surlyn® can be used for deep draw applications and will conform to the shape of almost any product.
Fast Processing: Surlyn® absorbs infrared heat at twice the rate of LDPE. Its ability to soften more quickly during the heating stage speeds up the packaging process by around 40%.
Tamper Resistant: Film made of Surlyn® are highly resistant to tampering making it very difficult to remove the product from its packaging without leaving obvious signs.
Chemical Resistant: Film made from Surlyn® will not corrode plated metal and is resistant to grease and oil.
Age Resistant: Surlyn® film will not become brittle with age.
Cold Weather Durability: Film made from Surlyn® retain their property down to -40c.
Board Curl: Surlyn® has a higher shrink force in its molten state for a perfect draw down but a low shrink force in the solid state. Compared to LDPE alternatives this removes board curl and prevents objects from being deformed.
Puncture Resistant: Surlyn® films are not easily punctured by pointed objects of sharp edges.
