The brand new packaging product, designed primarily for manufacturing trays for meat and poultry, has the same properties as multi-layer materials, but is produced from just one substrate, Mono amorphous polyethylene terephthalate or Mapet, which offers better sealability than its predecessor, Mapet I.
According to Dow, the material's clarity is comparable to that of amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET) and general-purpose polystyrene-butadiene copolymer (GPPS/SBC); its increased stiffness over conventional polypropylene allows for reduced wall thickness, and its high heat-distortion temperature and reduced density versus competitive materials enable faster processing and reduced part weight, respectively.
