02 Nov 2020

Packaging – optical – technical – medical – and now very up-to-date: face shields

Biaxially oriented polyester film – BOPET – is a real jack-of-all-trades. In a wide variety of packaging, its excellent mechanical characteristics, high barrier features, good temperature stability and brilliant puncture resistance are responsible for perfect applications. Many more good sites could be enumerated. 

BOPET thick film convinces with numerous features in industrial and optical grade films, electric applications as well as medical areas. The latter has been expanded by face shields, recently a very hot issue. In times of Corona these face coverings belong meanwhile to the standard repertoire – not only for doctors and nursing staff but also in pharmacies, public institutions, canteens and restaurants, hairdressing salons or at the weekly market.

Many of the unique BOPET features are fully applicable in face shields:

  • A very high dimensional stability over a broad temperature range
  • Mechanical robustness and chemical resistance
  • High stiffness
  • High light transmission and clarity
  • Good processability

Brückner customers support the worldwide efforts in fighting the Covid-19-virus with a special BOPET film for face shields. And not to forget: BOPET films are perfect for the upcoming circular economy. They will play an important role, due to their suitability for mechanical and chemical processes
