Description

[Cadillac Products Packaging Company] A registered trademark for a Barrier films made from Aluminum foil sandwiched between a biaxial nylon film and layers of heat sealable Polyethylene. Some types of CADPAK contain an additional layer of Heavy Duty green coex on one side. CADPAK films are strong, waterproof, vaporproof, greaseproof and flexible. Originally made for military applications, CADPAK films have found its way into museums and has been used to seal wooden packing crates, display cases, and storage shelves since 1980. It has also been used to create air-tight sealed enclosures for pest eradication.
