    Decorative coatings for aluminum foil are used to apply both color and/or design such as a company logo. Protective Coatings are added to the foil for resistance to abrasion, finger prints, chemicals, as well as strengthen the foil. Heat Seal Coatings can be used (based on applications) for bond strength, air tight seams and closures. Extruded Films consist of a molten liquid of various plastics used to create a bond to produce various laminations.
