Design and Tooling costs for clamshell packaging using PET are similar to those using PVC Although some variations in production process may be needed.
Each material has its own particularities that may need tooling adjustment. For example PVC clamshell packaging film may crack when the blade strikes the film and PET can require the tooling knife to cut until the striker plate is reached.
Forming temperature of PET is lower temperature than PVC so the lower level of heat limits the level of detail on the parts. Too much heat may crystallize and make it brittle.
PVC clamshell packaging film has a low COF (Coefficient of Friction) favoring smooth denesting and auto feeding process.
The correct amount of silicone coating increases productivity.
PET with a higher COF requires more silicone to separate parts than PVC.
An excess of silicone coating in the clamshell packaging film may interfere with some blister closing mechanisms.
Fortune union can customize its film formulation to meet your specific clamshell box production requirements.
CUSTOM multilayered film for clamshell box tailored to your production process can also be produced.
