Capran® PIR-MT1200 Film

1 of 8 products in this brand

Capran® PIR-MT1200 film from AdvanSix contains 100% post-industrial recycled (PIR) raw materials while providing the same top performance and processability as Capran® MT1200, its standard, non-recycled counterpart.

Capran® PIR-MT1200 Film is a 0.47 mil (12 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® PIR-MT1200 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.
