The outer most layer of polyethylene provides the coating surface. Next is paper, providing the package with stiffness and the printing surface. Then comes an adhesive layer of polyethylene to bind the paper to the 4th layer i.e. aluminum. The aluminum has barrier properties to prevent the inward migration of light, air and bacteria. Finally, the innermost layers of food-grade polyethylene protect and contain the product.
