A microwave susceptible insulated packaging material includes a thermal
insulating layer, which may be a fiberfill batt. The insulating layer is
laminated to at least one layer of a co-extruded film which has been
coated on one surface with a microwave susceptible material, such as
aluminum or aluminum coated with a food-safe contacting polymer sealant.
The packaging material can be used to form a container, such as a pouch,
or as a label or as a lining for a container. The packaging material may
be coated also with a printable coating material.
