Clean Nylon

Clean Nylon packaging film is the ideal answer for challenges involving toughness, cleanliness and maximum resistance to abrasion. Clean Nylon used for cleanroom packaging is an unplasticised, FDA-approved, food-grade clear film.

Clean Nylon is a hydrophilic (water-sensitive) material; moisture acts as the plasticizer. The higher the moisture content of the film, the more flexible and rubbery it behaves. Clean Nylon is an unplasticised, FDA approved food grade clear film that offers the lowest levels of particulate counts of any clean film. Additionally it is very low in ionic contamination and non-volatile residue.

Clean Nylon is used in applications with a high sensitivity to contamination. With its high abrasion resistance, Clean Nylon is ideal for packing sharp or hard items that otherwise would cause a softer material to contaminate the product.
