The clear transparent plastic window is mostly made of the PVC and PET. And the latter is very eco-friendly because it is totally recyclable. The paper food boxes usually choose the PET plastic material to make the clear window of the paper box.
After the creasing and diecut of the PVC|PET materials, there is usually 2 ways to make the window box. One solution is that we glue the PET|PVC to the inner surface of the corrugated printed box. Another solution is that the PET|PVC is folded to make a sleeve. Then the sleeves can slide in to the paper box.
And the thickness of the PET/PVC is varied from 0.15mm to 0.30mm. For the paper printed box with the PET sleeves, the 0.25mm, 0.30mm is widely applied.
The clear window on the paper box can be any shape. They are square window box, rectangular window box, heart shape window box and other custom shapes. Besides the common clear window boxes which have the plastic window on the front panel, the clear plastic window can be folded and glued to the side panels of the paper box. It is called a corner window box, or paper box with the corner window.
Also, you can have a PET or PVC blister insert to put inside the printed paper box to hold the product.
