Oppera™ modifiers  

From food packaging to confectionery, tea and even cosmetics wrapping, Oppera™ modifiers play a significant role in our daily lives. These modifiers are used in the manufacturing of transparent or opaque films with added stiffness and barrier properties. They enable the production of downgauged films, reducing raw material consumption while extending shelf life and product freshness. Altogether, Oppera modifiers support sustainable PP film development.


  • Enhanced optics films with low haze and high gloss
  • Improved shrinkage
  • Improved machinability during challenging converting operations
  • A reduced melt viscosity and the ability to lower stretch/orientation temperatures to reduce power consumption
  • Possibility for smooth extrusion of difficult polymers with fewer films breaks interrupting operations
  • A proven track record of cleanliness and consistency

Performance benefits

  • Barrier protection: improves shelf life and product freshness
  • Twist retention: offers excellent candy wrap performance and improved deadfold characteristics
  • Sealability: lower temperature seal for faster line operating speeds, energy efficiency and less heat degradation of films
  • Shrinkage: allows tight overwrap
  • Transparency: enhanced optical properties with lower haze with high gloss

Processing benefits

  • Extrudability: enables production at lower temperatures with enhanced melt flow
  • Thin film capability: stiffer film that offers downgauging opportunities
  • Stretchability: better film orientation for easier processing, optimized throughout and reduced waste
