eISSN: 15308014 | ISSN: 87560879 | Current volume: 40 | Current issue: 2 Frequency: Quarterly

The Journal of Plastic Film and Sheeting improves communication concerning plastic film and sheeting with major emphasis on the propogation of knowledge which will serve to advance the science and technology of these products and thus better serve industry and the ultimate consumer. The journal reports on the wide variety of advances that are rapidly taking place in the technology of plastic film and sheeting. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

The Journal of Plastic Film and Sheeting is a peer-reviewed journal devoted exclusively to the research, development, and processing of plastic film and sheeting, including the coating, drying, and curing of liquid films on substrates. Reports by specialists from industry and universities present new developments in polymer science and plastics technology that result in improved films and sheeting.


Topics include:

  • new plastics resins and additives for films
  • processing methods and equipment
  • characterization
  • test methods and data
  • applications.
  • Also included are reports on film safety in various applications, environmental aspects, and regulatory considerations. Emphasis is placed on films and film properties for food packaging.


This unique journal serves the information needs of polymer scientists, plastics engineers, packaging specialists, and researchers involved in plastic film research, development, processing and applications.
