New Metallyte™, Bicor™, OPPalyte™ and Label-Lyte™ films at Pack Expo
Visit our booth (# E-8114) at Pack Expo in Chicago, October 28-31, 2012 to discover new flexible packaging and labeling film technologies for a range of demanding applications. Find out how these new films can deliver better performance and manage costs.
Discover a new Metallyte™ film with enhanced barrier properties, a new Bicor™ film which can reduce package weight, an OPPalyte™ film that improves operations in frozen novelty food packaging, and a new Label-Lyte™ shrink sleeve film which facilitates flotation separation of labels from bottles in support of PET bottle recycling (where available). Also find out how our industry-leading Exceed™ and Enable™ mPE resins are creating value for customers in range of packaging applications.
Metallyte™ 70 MET-HB2 film is a vacuum-metallized, high barrier OPP film with a proprietary sealant layer that provides an excellent barrier to oxygen, moisture and light. The enhanced barrier performance of Metallyte™ 70 MET-HB2 film is well-suited to vertical form fill seal (VFFS) and horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) packaging applications in which products such as crisps and snacks, bakery products, cookies and crackers need to stay fresh for extended periods.
The film delivers an oxygen transmission rate of less than 10 cc/m²/day and a moisture transmission rate of 0.06 g/m²/day.
Bicor™ 18 MAT-S film is a one-side treated, one-side heat sealable, matte-finish OPP film that can deliver package weight savings. Designed for use as the outer web of a lamination, the heat sealability of Bicor 18 MAT-S film allows lap sealing of the matte finish layer to multiple coextruded OPP sealant webs. This enables a finished package weight reduction of up to 5 percent when compared to fin seal packages.
The film provides a matte, paper-like, satin appearance for differentiated packaging when reverse printed. This provides designers with the flexibility to develop packages with a traditional, soft paper look and feel.
OPPalyte™ 42 WOS-RH film can improve operations and reduce total cost of use compared to other film and paper currently being used for the frozen foods market. It enables glossy, eye-catching package designs that attract consumers, including the impulse purchasers of on-the-go-treats.
The film is engineered with proprietary surface technology for robust machine performance in the highly variable relative humidity (RH) conditions encountered in frozen novelty foods manufacturing facilities. As a result, OPPalyte 42 WOS-RH film can improve line efficiency, increase output, and reduce downtime and product waste.
Another ExxonMobil Chemical product enhancement for the frozen novelty market, OPPalyte™ 42 WOW film, is designed specifically for ice cream sandwich overwraps. It provides a premium high-gloss, bright white wrap that allows graphics to “pop,” helping to drive consumer appeal.
With new technology, it can deliver higher yields than typical materials currently being used. The seals are strong to maintain package integrity and product quality, but can be peeled for easier opening. It features excellent stiffness and hot slip, and provides outstanding print performance for flexographic and rotogravure printing.
Label-Lyte™ 50TD200 shrink sleeve film has been designed with low density to facilitate flotation separation of the label from bottles in support of PET bottle-to-bottle recycling (where available). It also provides excellent on-bottle shrinkage. The film is ideal for customers requiring transverse-direction (TD) shrink sleeve labels for food, beverage, healthcare and other consumer goods applications.
Demand for closed-loop recycling of PET bottles is driving a desire for low density TD shrink sleeve label materials that facilitate label flotation separation from the container.
