The advantageous properties of arbotect make it possible to produce packaging for a wide variety of sensitive products. This group of barrier plastics prevents the transfer of pollutants and flavors through the plastic packaging itself, as well as the ingress of oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, water vapor and other harmful agents. arbotect is therefore excellently suitable as a monolayer packaging material and offers clear cost advantages. Due to individual support, decades of experience and competence we deliver Swiss quality all over the world.


Arbotect provides you with excellent barrier properties and easy thermoforming performance in a single material sheet or film. The combination of high rigidity, very good flow behavior and strength allow exceptional design forming. The packaging can be fitted exactly to contents like sterile implants, fluids, foods or documents to be preserved. 

Properties and resistance

The sealing properties and remarkable chemical resistance in arbotect single layer sheet or film favor a large variety of applications. It is also used as the direct contact layer when laminated with PE, PP or PS. Combinations with paper, cardboard or aluminum present further possibilities. arbotect can be printed, lacquered, hot stamped etc. to design individual packaging solutions.

Retention of active substances,a strong gas barrier, protection from migration or loss of flavors and aromas, extended shelf-life and flexible design opportunities are characteristics that make arbotect ideal for packaging the following products:

Solids like:

  • Implants
  • Diagnostic chips
  • Medical and pharmaceutical applications
  • Cosmetic products
  • Chocolate
  • premium foods
  • Preservation of documents and ancient scripts

Production of goods like:

  • Diagnostic trays
  • Monodose
  • Blisters
  • Thermoformed articles of daily use
  • Molds for electronic devices
  • Molds for chocolates
