1 of 41 products in this brand

Capran® MT3000 film is a 1.2 mil (30 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® MT3000 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.
