are capri sun pouches UV resistant?


after reading the capri sun welding instructable i was thinking of making an outdoor tarp out of them to cover my lawnmowers. maybe even putting it on the roof in summer to reflect heat and reduce cooling costs. my kids love these things so i have a lot of them.

well yeah, but not 100%. I suppose it all depends on what's acceptable to your application.

Maybe.

From the Kraft (IIRC)foods website:  CAPRI SUN pouches are polyester-reverse side printed to aluminum then laminated to polyethylene.

So depends if the polyethylene and the polyester is of a variety that is UV protected.  Some are and Some aren't.  Either way the packs are NOT recyclable.

You cold make your tarp then use it and report back to us the results.
