Alternatives to metallized papers
Metallized papers are just one option for incorporating metallic looks onto labels and packaging. What other technologies are there, and what benefits do metallized papers offer in comparison?
So why choose metallized paper over MetPET?
Metallized papers offer a solution to achieve the distinctive, metallic finish on packaging with only a fraction of the aluminum content of traditional foils.
Our metallized papers take their gloss from various sources: the paper itself, the aluminum layer and a top coat which moisturizes the paper – neither of which hamper the recycling process which makes our metallized papers environmentally friendly and offer excellent recyclability.
Our overall production process has a very low-waste ratio again giving us an better overall environmental footprint compared to other metallized product options.
Being paper, our product scores easily and conforms to the intended final shape and construction requiring less adhesives similar to paper applications.
