CO-EXTRUDED FILM

In co-extruded films, different resins are melted separately, extruded through a multi-layer die resulting in a multilayer film which for all practical purposes is a single layer of film with multiple properties.  Co-extrusion is a one-step process resulting in a single structured film.  The advantage of a co-extruded film is that you may have as many as nine distinct layers or different properties melted into one film to form multiple properties in a single structure to obtain certain barrier or strength properties.
