DuPont Teijin Films has been at the cutting edge of packaging innovation from the invention and commercialisation of polyester film manufacturing in the 1950s, through to the ready meal revolution as the world's largest supplier of heat sealable polyester lidding films.
We have a global reach with dedicated marketing, technical and manufacturing operations in every region of the world, and regional responsiveness through our European manufacturing sites in Scotland and Luxembourg and our Global Innovation Centre located in Teesside, UK.
The Mylar® range of heat-sealable films consists of an unrivalled option of different sealable and peelable films for use with all tray materials, as well as a range of heat sealable films designed for flow wrap, VFFS or thermoforming applications. Trust and quality are bywords that define everything we do, and the combination of our long heritage in high temperature applications and close relationships with industry experts helps us to achieve the highest levels of food contact legislative compliance.
As the inventor of heat-sealable, dual ovenable polyester films, DuPont Teijin Films have been at the forefront of industry-changing developments from the emergence of ready meals through to the cutting edge of ovenable flow wrap packs. With the new Mylar® COOK range we are yet again redefining polyester film, introducing an innovative range of dual ovenable, thermoformable films.
The benefits of using Mylar® films in the cooking process are numerous. Flavours and aromas are kept and enhanced during the cooking process so even the most inexperienced cook can deliver restaurant-quality food at home with no mess and no waste. The no touch cooking experience delivers high levels of food safety and individual tastes can be catered for by cooking different foods at the same time without cross contamination. In many cases the cooking time is reduced, delivering increased convenience and helping to reduce energy consumption.
Mylar® heat-sealable polyester films have also helped to revolutionise fresh produce packaging and deliver the industry standard performance for lidding films used to package produce such as berries, fresh cut fruit and prepared salads. Reliable seals at temperatures as low as 125°C enable the use of cheaper and thinner punnets, and our unique heat seal technology delivers hermetic seals and a clean easy peel, even in the most challenging conditions of cut fruit packaging. Eye-catching shelf appeal comes with class-leading anti-fog and ink adhesion coatings.
Here too our leading edge science and breadth of manufacturing capability is changing the way we see polyester films with our new 'humidity control' films aimed at extending the shelf life of produce and minimising food waste. Our unique patented polymer development has a high water vapour transmission rate (WVTR) and has the ability to absorb moisture, helping to extend the shelf life of produce and to deliver a higher quality product to the consumer.
