Teslin® Food-Grade Substrate

Teslin® Food-Grade substrate is a microporous synthetic sheet material engineered for food contact packaging and labeling applications.

Durable and Flexible
Teslin Food-Grade substrate provides the ultimate in durability, breathability and conformability. It is:

  • Ice and steam resistant
  • Tear, abrasion and chemical resistant
  • Pliable in extremely cold temperatures and able to survive heat of up to 170⁰C (338 ⁰F).
  • Flexible to withstand expansion, contraction and bulging when filling or shipping
  • Conformable
  • Water-resistant, yet breathable to enable the diffusion of various gases
  • Tamper-resistant and tamper-evident


Labeling Solution for Food Safety, Regulatory Compliance and Tracing

Enabling supply-chain traceability, Teslin Food-Grade substrate can be used to print tamper-resistant labels with encrypted bar codes or quick-response (QR) codes, or to fulfill requirements for permanent labeling with nutritional data, warnings and other critical information.


Branding and Marketing

With excellent color and precise photo and text print reproduction, Teslin Food-Grade substrate offers a broad range of options for branding, packaging, protecting and displaying food goods.


Easy to Print

Fixed information can be printed on Teslin Food-Grade substrate via offset or flexographic processes, with variable information added later via laser, ink-jet or thermal transfer.


Regulatory Information

When used as intended, Teslin Food-Grade substrate is fully compliant with the U.S. Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and all related food-additive regulations for food-contact applications. It is not limited by food type, amount of material used or operating conditions.


Available thicknesses
Teslin Food-Grade substrate is made-to-order in thicknesses of 6, 7, 8 and 10 mils (145, 178, 20 and 254 microns).
