Hi Jens,
we are using SARAN which we get from Migros which is a grocery store. The
foil is originally made by DOW chemicals and the material supposedly is
PVDC. PVDC probably means polyvinyl dichloride. Other brands did not work.

I have no idea whether you can get in the US but it should be possible.
Good luck
