TORONTO—Celplast Metallized Products Limited is ready to go to market with its revolutionary DURAMET top-coated metallized PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) film.

It brings a lower cost, lower carbon footprint alternative to foil in the high barrier flexible packaging market. In head-to-head tests with four-ply PET/foil/nylon/CPP (Cast polypropylene) adhesive laminates, three-ply PET/DURAMET/CPP adhesive laminates have achieved similar barrier and bond results to the four-ply foil structure.

This is also the case when comparing four-ply PET/foil/PET/LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) to three-ply PET/DURAMET/LDPE adhesive laminates. These results have been proven out on different laminators with several commercially available adhesive systems.

DURAMET meets USFDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) food contact requirements for use with all food types under Condition of Use E.


It also complies with relevant requirements of the Swiss Chemicals Ordinance SR 813.11 (ChemO) and European Regulation No. 10/2011 for food contact.

With the imminent commissioning of the world’s first large scale 2.45 meter wide Metacoat top-coating and metallizing process, Celplast is ready to partner with converters to make its next-generation laminates with DURAMET a commercial success.
