Achieving High Barrier Performance in Coextruded Films

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Jun 6, 2018

Reach higher barrier performance levels in your multilayer thin films with coextrusion for any type of packaging goods without compromising on mechanical properties (strength, stiffness…) and sustainability.

Thomas Bezigian will share how to innovate barrier film design logic (including material selection, prediction of coextruded barrier film performance…) within limited trials to save time reaching optimal barrier performance.

Why should you view this course?

End user requirements translate into package design requirements, which in turn becomes your job! To stay competitive, you have to innovate to reach higher barrier performance levels. But with limited amount of trials, it is difficult to break the barriers using existing structures… Join this course and:


  1. Save time reaching optimal barrier properties (OTR, WVTR...) in your novel film structures by understanding the design logic for various kinds of packaged goods

  2. Make the right selection of barrier material by reviewing the various materials available (polyamides, PVdC, EVOH, OPET, OPP...) and how you can make them work together via co-extrusion

  3. Predict the barrier performance of your co-extruded packaging from film & resin permeability properties before real scale trial
