Details

Mylar is an industrial trademarked brand name that is often confusing. In its basic form, mylar is a CLEAR material made from polyester resin. IMPAK produces MylarFoil bags used in a wide range of industries which require moisture and oxygen barriers to ensure product integrity. Polyester film, ('mylar') when laminated to aluminum foil provides additional barrier properties and higher puncture resistance than any metallized polyester structure.  The ubiquitous "mylar" balloons are actually made from metallized polyester, a very lightweight structure in which the aluminum is deposited onto the surface of the polyester (mylar) film in a thickness measured in angstroms ( 1 angstrom = 1/1000th of a human hair). To compare the properties of MylarFoil, review the specifications for PAKVF4 which has a complete layer ( .00035 ) of aluminum foil with a metallized structure like PAKVF2.5M. An aluminum foil layer actils like a FLEXIBLE can providing the best possible barrier properties. Our PAKVF4PC structure has a .0005 foil layer structure that is 6.0 mils thick. The majority of foil structures use only .00028, a thickness rife with pinhole problems.

We have over 60 films available in stock for custom package production. They range from 2.0 to 10.0 mils in thickness, vary from transparent to opaque and include seven stock colors of aluminum foil. 75% of our work orders are for custom sizes, printing, or materials.
