 RKW’s Horizon® film in MDO PE (Machine Direction Oriented PolyEthylene) is suitable to replace PET or PP layers in many multimaterial applications in the flexible packaging market.

 The barrier is provided by Coathink®, the water-based coating deposition technology developed by SAES. The coating is less than one micron thick, equivalent to just 1 or 2% of the total packaging weight.


The film, coated and metallised by Coathink, finds application in 100% PE laminated flexible food packaging where the product shelf life requires high protection from oxygen and humidity. The performance is attained with OTR values (23 °C, 0% RH) below 1 cc/sqmx24h and WVTR (38°C, 90% RH) below 1 g/sqmx24h.
The film is also available with trasparent oxygen barrier and coated AlOx multi-gas barrier.
