APEL™ Cyclo Olefin Copolymer (COC) Applications

There are numerous applications for APEL™ in the optical, film and packaging areas.


APEL has strong optical properties relative to other commercial resins and can be used in:

  • Camera lenses (digital cameras and mobile phones)
  • Lens for Head Mounted Display (AR, VR, MR)
  • Automotive Camera Lens
  • CCTV Lens
  • Lens for sensor
  • f θ lens for laser printer
  • Pick-up lens for DVD player, recorder and SACD player


Packaging and multilayer barrier films produced with APEL Cyclo Olefin Copolymer should exhibit improved moisture and thermal resistance. Current and potential applications include:

  • Pharmaceutical Packaging
    • PTP Sheet (Blister Packaging)
    • Shrink caps (Film type)
    • Stand up pouches
  • Food Packaging and Containers
    • Easy cut film (Instant coffee small stick packaging film)
    • Shrink film and label
    • Kitchenware such as coffee maker cover
    • Multilayer packaging
  • Extrusion Coated Packaging
