1 of 7 products in this brand

OxyShield® OEB 1500 (2ST) is a 0.59 mil (15 micron) biaxially oriented nylon 6 film. Designed for use as packaging that requires high oxygen barrier (OTR <2 cc/m2 /24 hours) such as for dairy products and meats in modified atmosphere packages, OxyShield® OEB 1500 (2ST) incorporates EVOH in the core layer to provide extra oxygen barrier. In addition to conferring oxygen barrier properties, OxyShield® OEB 1500 (2ST) offers an aroma barrier, excellent toughness, and puncture resistance under both high and low temperatures, and exceptional flex crack resistance.
