A modified polyester, heat seal coating used in lidding applications where the coating is applied to untreated polyester film.
Adcote™ 40-51NEF is a modified polyester, heat seal coating. It is used in lidding applications where the coating is applied to untreated polyester film and then sealed to PVC, and uncoated or PVDC-coated HIPS containers. Best results are obtained with untreated polyester film surface energy levels of approximately 42 dynes/cm2.
