Susceptor

Metallized film for consumables that need to be heated in the microwave

When it comes to packaging options for microwavable goods, printers and converters are naturally turning to susceptor films, which not only provide adequate protection to consumable goods, but help to ensure food is deliciously crispy after it’s heated in the microwave.

AR Metallizing produces metallized susceptor film and board with a low optical density. The characteristics of our film means it is ideal for use with microwavable foods despite being metallized (normally, metallized products are not microwave-safe because they can potentially provoke a fire).

The aluminum layer in our film and board is microscopically thin and therefore it is totally microwave safe because it doesn’t create an environment that can create sparks. Meanwhile, brands still retain all the benefits of a unique metallized look.

Our team of experts have decades of experience in the production of susceptor materials for a variety of microwavable goods, and because food safety is paramount when you’re packaging consumables, we’re well placed to help you ensure that all relevant regulations are met in relation to your susceptor material. By choosing AR Metallizing’s susceptor film you’ll not only be benefitting from our top quality material, but our expertise and assistance, too.
