Oxygen Barrier IML

An Oxygen Barrier IML label label reduces the oxygen permeability of IML packaging by making use of an EVOH layer in the IML film. The OTR (Oxygen Transmission Rate) of packaging with an oxygen barrier IML label can be reduced by up to 100 times when compared to packaging with a standard IML label.

Light Barrier IML

Certain food products are sensitive to light. With a Light Barrier IML label the contents of your packaging are protected from sunlight and/or UV light. There are 2 types of Light Barrier IML labels.

  • The first type has a UV light barrier (100-380 nM) with a transmission of less than 1%.
  • The opacity of the second type is > 99% and has a transmission (100-780 nM) of less than 1%
