Product Description

Mylar® OL12 is a biaxially oriented polyester film with a heat-sealable coating on one surface and plain polyester on the other. Mylar® OL12 can be used for ready meals, where security of seal at room temperature is required. The product can be heat-sealed to itself, APET/CPET trays, polyester coated board and PVC. It seals in the range 140°C to 200°C, providing a strong seal at room temperature which becomes peelable when heated. Dual-ovenable ready meals sealed with Mylar® OL12 can be cooked at typically 220°C for 30mins, yet withstand temperatures as low as -70°C. Mylar® OL12AF has anti-fog incorporated into the heat-seal layer to minimise fogging during freezing, chilling and cooking. It can also be used to improve clarity, when ‘breathable’ products such as fresh vegetables are packed.
