BOPP packaging films

You can enhance your biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) packaging films operation through:

  • Faster packaging line speeds for small portion packages
  • Low heat seal initiation temperature (SIT), enhanced hot tack performance and seal hermeticity
  • Improved optical properties for eye-catching designs
  • Food regulation compliance* for easier market launch

Adding Vistamaxx™ performance polymers to conventional BOPP packaging film formulations can deliver:

  • Enhanced sealing properties while improving clarity by modifying sealant layer polymer
  • A cost-effective alternative to very broad sealing range (VBSR) films when blended with terpolymer polypropylene (terPP)
  • Very high packaging speeds and a wide processing window on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) packaging lines
  • Improved hot tack and seal hermeticity on vertical form fill seal (VFFS) packaging lines
  • Up to 25% enhancement of the seal hermeticity of conventional films
  • Lower haze/low gels for better clarity and eye-catching designsFood contact regulation* compliance and is organoleptic neutral

Typical applications:

  • Snacks, bakery goods and confectionery with demanding food preservation needs
  • Single-portion cakes, crackers, chocolates, and temperature sensitive foods (ice cream)
  • Consumer products
