Breathable films are produced by the mixture of minerals such as polymer and calcium carbonate. They are micro porous in nature. They do not allow water to pass but vapor of water can pass through it. Hence, they are micro porous in nature. Breathable films help to retain the food products fresh for a long time and also increase its shelf-life. The main application of breathable films is in the hygienic products such as adult diaper and baby diapers. Breathable films coatings provide protection from various hazardous environments. The filler material used in breathable films reduces the cost by replacing resin with carbonates.
