| Subj: Press-releses
Toray Plastics (America), Inc., has expanded its portfolio of white films and now offers consumer product goods companies and converters five new Torayfan® white-pigmented metallized biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films. The new films encompass sealable and non-sealable versions and are available in a variety of heat-seal strengths. End users can also “dial in” preferred oxygen and moisture-barrier levels. Toray’s combination of pigment, sealant, and barrier in one film allows end users and converters to manufacture a duplex instead of a triplex lamination in many applications.Applications include salted crisp snacks, cookies, protein bars, and confectionery items. Toray Plastics (America)’s family of white films also includes high-barrier cavitated white metallized versions.
“CPG companies wanted an aesthetically pleasing high-barrier alternative to traditional metallized and cavitated white metallized films,” says Tammy Williamson, Associate Product Manager, Torayfan Division. “These new pigmented films offer robust barrier-durability after converting, extended shelf life, and a clean, bright white appearance, all of which enhance brand integrity.”
The new films are:
Torayfan MPX4, MP5H, MPHX5, and PCP5 films can be used with gas-flushed applications. The entire portfolio runs on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) and vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machines.
