Clarity, sustainability, cost-effectiveness and innovation are just some of the core benefits of Celanese's line of Clarifoil Cellulose Diacetate films. As a world-leading producer, Celanese prides itself on fulfilling its customers' diverse needs for filmic solutions.
Cellulose, the primary raw material used in Clarifoil, is derived from wood, a naturally renewable resource. Celanese's wood pulp comes from FSC-certified sources, and its film is biodegradable and compostable to EN13432, ASTMD6400 and Vincotte 'OK Compost' standards.
Quality is critical in any consumer-product industry and print lamination is no exception. Clarifoil Gloss lamination film produces a brilliant sheen, while Clarifoil Matt adds an elegant aesthetic. When customers require silk-like finishes, Celanese's Satinè film provides the perfect solution.
Cartons windowed with Clarifoil films are used in the packaging of a variety of products, from baked goods to electronics. Crystal clear with a high-gloss finish and excellent scratch resistance, Clarifoil films can maximise shelf impact. When used in the packaging of moist food, the high moisture-vapour permeability allows products to be stored in chilled cabinets without misting.
In labels, Clarifoil acetate is highly transparent and has exceptionally low haze, which makes it perfect for use in applications seeking a 'no-label' look. Due to its excellent tensile strength and low tear strength, standard Clarifoil acetate film - also available in a matt finish - is also often used in tamper-evident applications such as packaging closure seals and on-product labelling. For high-security labels that require a fully destructible face material, Clarifoil Integuard provides high-performance frangibility.
Clarifoil bio-based thermoform film offers a number of distinct advantages compared with traditional plastics. Made from renewable wood pulp, it is also recyclable and safe for incineration. The high-performance solution is
safe, cost-effective and easy to apply.
