MetPet (Metallic) or Aluminium?

If you’re putting foodstuffs or perishables into your pouches, our material options will help keep your product fresh. Both materials have oxygen and moisture and UV barrier properties. MetPet is lighter, has increased flexibility and is more environmentally friendly than the more costly Aluminium, although it does boast better barrier properties.

Foodstuffs – best material options

Biscuits - Degraded by humidity. Products with chocolate and cream are degraded by oxidation, flavour loss or uptake. METPET is the most suitable material.

Chocolate - Degraded by moisture and humidity. Causes sugar bloom. Poor sealing or light/oxygen can cause rancidity. METPET / ALUMINIUM are the most suitable materials.

Dehydrated food and beverages - Normally long shelf life products. They require high barrier to water, aroma and oxygen. ALUMINIUM is the most suitable material.

Pet food - (Wet) is degraded by oxygen, light causing loss of aroma. Barrier film required. EVOH / ALUMINIUM are the most suitable materials.

Sugar Confectionery – Un-crystallized products absorb moisture/water. Crystallized tend to lose moisture. EVOH / ALUMINIUM are the most suitable materials.

Crisps and snacks - Degrade through rancidity, this needs an oxygen and light barrier to prevent the loss of crispiness. A moisture barrier is required. METPET is the most suitable material.
