BOPP films (Biaxially Oriented PolyPropylene Films) are produced by stretching polypropylene film in both machine direction and transverse direction. BOPP film is used in vast range of applications comprising packaging, labelling and lamination. BOPP Films are preferred substrate for food packaging globally because of its inherent moisture barrier properties, seal ability, high clarity and graphic reproduction and shelf appeal, best possibilities of the pack being a mono layer/homogeneous structure.
For food packaging, it is prominently used as co-extruded heat sealable reverse printable film. In labeling, it is preferred because of its yield benefit (Lowest density of 0.55 for IML orange peel effect), recyclability with PP containers et al. BOPP Films has a strong demand globally which is driven by expanding flexible packaging industry. The advantages BOPP offers are numerous.
