From basic to breakthrough solutions, Charter Next Generation has the broadest portfolio of blown films on the market. Our advanced coextrusion process empowers us to make multilayer films in fewer steps than our competitors. Plus, our redundancy of supply ensures our customers always have exactly what they need.
With multiple lines capable of making barrier films with up to 11 layers, Charter Next Generation is recognized as the leading independent producer of barrier films. Our films protect products and prevent or minimize the migration of oxygen, liquids, oils, fats and aromas for enhanced shelf life.
Our medium and high-barrier film portfolio is versatile while delivering consistent quality and consistency necessary for key applications such as meat, cheese, and liquid packaging. By combining our application expertise and state-of-the-art 7-11 layer film technology, we have proven workhorse solutions or the ability to custom design films with the right combination of key properties such as:
EVOH sealant films – The best choice for applications requiring oxygen barrier, good clarity and strong seals. These films can be further customized for added stiffness, moisture barrier, tear properties, flex crack resistance and easy-open features.
Nylon sealant films – Ideal for moderate oxygen barrier, dimple resistance, toughness and tear resistance. These films can be further customized for moisture barrier, easy-open features, exceptional formability and seal performance.
Nylon EVOH sealant films – For the ultimate combination of toughness and high-barrier properties, these films can also be customized for formability, clarity, and seal performance.
Moisture Barrier Films – Lamination and stand-alone films for high moisture barrier applications that can be tailored for various packaging formats such as VFFS, HFFS, or pre-made pouches.
Chemical Barrier Films – Designed for hard to hold substances such as alcohol or iodine, these films are built to provide exceptional chemical resistance and toughness for your most challenging applications.
We continuously invest in world-class technology and top-of-the-line polymers to ensure the highest quality. Additionally, we have a dedicated support team that understands our customers’ needs and can make expert recommendations based on performance and economic criteria. Our blown films are designed for a myriad of applications, including:
