Sclairfilm A-514

Sclairfilm A-514 is a linear low-density polyolefin film specifically formulated to provide optimum sealing and durability performance for coffee packaging applications.


Typical Applications

  • A-514 film has been specially formulated for use in coffee 'brick pack' and other coffee packaging laminations.
  • A-514 film provides excellent durability, resistance to moisture, and hermetic sealability when laminated to polyester film, nylon film, foil, or cellulose film.

Key Features

  • A-514 film is specifically produced to provide excellent opticals, toughness, and freedom from gel particles-all necessary requirements for a laminating application.
  • Its outstanding heat seal performance, and ability to seal through contamination, ensures leakage-free seals in vacuum packaging coffee applications.


Sclairfilm GL

Sclairfilm GL is a general-purpose, linear low-density polyethylene sealant film designed for less critical sealing applications than Type SL film.
