1 of 41 products in this brand
Capran® MT1000 film is a 0.40 mil (10 micron) biaxially oriented Nylon 6 film with a metallized barrier coating by controlled vacuum deposition of high-purity aluminum. The metallized film has corona treatment on the reverse side. Capran® MT1000 film not only maintains its physical properties, but also offers exceptional gas barrier and a pure glossy metallic appearance, making it especially well-suited for packaging and balloon applications.
