Toray Plastics (America) has added to its portfolio of white films with five new Torayfan white-pigmented metallised biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films.
The new line encompasses sealable and non-sealable versions and is 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 applications such as salted crisp snacks, cookies, protein bars, and confectionery.
Tammy Williamson, associate product manager of Torayfan division, said: “CPG companies wanted an aesthetically pleasing high-barrier alternative to traditional metallised and cavitated white metallised films.
“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.”
End users can use the Torayfan MPX4, MP5H, MPHX5, and PCP5 films with gas-flushed applications. The portfolio runs on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) and vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machines.
Earlier this year Toray Plastics (America) launched the third generation of its Torayfan clear polypropylene films as it responds to consumer demand for shelf-stable food in transparent packaging.
Rhode Island-headquartered Toray Plastics (America) is a manufacturer of polyester, polypropylene, bio-based, and metallised films for flexible and rigid packaging.
