GL FILM's high barrier performance protects contents from moisture, oxygen, and drying.
It also provides a range of added value. GL FILM can be used to replace aluminum foil, and its transparency enables contents to be visible, thus enhancing their appeal to customers. Packages using GL FILM can also be heated in microwave ovens and inspected using metal detectors.
The market for retort foods is expanding because they can be distributed at atmospheric temperatures and stored for long periods. The effect of retort sterilization on GL FILM’s barrier performance is minimal, meaning that it is the global standard and a leading brand in this sector.
With the growing market for organic food, fewer food additives are being used, and demand for high barrier packaging material is increasing.
The use of transparent film also enhances sales promotion and stimulates sales by enabling contents to be visible to customers.
Due to the growth of the microwavable food market, aluminum-free packaging with high barrier performance is in demand.
The value of transparent film is increasing as it provides safety and reassurance by enabling contents to be seen and metal detectors to be used.
Medical and pharmaceutical products require particularly high barrier performance. This means that demand for GL FILM, which has barrier performance rivaling that of aluminum foil, is on the rise.
One of the major strengths of GL FILM in clinical settings, where decisions need to be made in an instant, is that it allows the contents of packaging to be confirmed without opening.
GL FILM's high barrier performance makes it highly effective for autoclave sterilization at high temperatures similar to those of retort food.
Aesthetics are important for cosmetics products. This means that the transparency and protection provided by GL FILM make it the ideal solution.
The expansion of markets for organic products and natural cosmetics has heightened consumers’ consciousness of the eco-friendliness of packaging materials. This means increasing demand for GL FILM, which has less impact on the environment than aluminum foil.
Vacuum insulating materials used in refrigerators and other appliances use technology that enhances insulation performance by creating a vacuum around the insulating material and minimizing heat conduction via gas. GL FILM is used as the barrier layer in these insulating materials
The moisture content of doors covered with regular decorative sheets changes due to the effects of air conditioning, direct sunlight, and humidity. This causes differences in expansion and contraction between the side of a door facing into a room and that facing into a hallway, which can result in warpage. GL FILM helps to mitigate warpage by minimizing the transfer of moisture.
