Wilmington, Del.-based ICI Polyester introduced two new Melinex-brand films, one with Food and Drug Administration compliance and the other designed for the automotive and furniture industries.
Melinex 813 is a PET film and can be used in direct food-contact applications such as packaging, transporting or holding food. It has a proprietary coating on one side that accepts solvent- and water-based inks, coatings and adhesives.
Melinex 376, also PET, is a translucent, smooth, matte film used to create wood and muted metallic effects.
It simulates wood finishes in car interiors and furniture manufacturing, where wood finishes are applied to particle board and other surfaces.
ICI Polyester, part of ICI Americas, is a business unit of United Kingdom-based Imperial Chemical Industries plc.
