The Metallized Film Manufacturing Process
To metallize film, a process of vacuum coating takes place, which adds a thin layer of aluminium or other metal coating to a substrate material. This results in a uniform, flat metallized layer.
Our vaccum metalizing services include a process that begins with evaporating the coating metal in a vacuum chamber, then applying it to the substrate web as it is passed through a small gap in the machine. The coating condenses on the material, creating a metallized finish.
Vacuum metallizing is sometimes referred to as ‘Thermal Evaporation’ metallizing or Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD). It is the most common process for applying metal alloys to a substrate material.
It is used primarily in the decorative and packaging industries for items such as streamers, ribbons, beer labels etc.
