TORAY PLASTICS (AMERICA) INTRODUCES TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED TORAYFAN® MWX6 METALLIZED WHITE POLYPROPYLENE FILM

 

North Kingstown, Rhode Island (April 16, 2013) - Toray Plastics (America), Inc., (www.torayfilms.com) the only United States manufacturer of precision-performance polyester, polypropylene, and bio-based films, is pleased to announce that CPG companies and converters seeking a high-performance film for gas-flushed packaging applications now have a new option available to them with Torayfan® MWX6 metallized white cavitated biaxially-oriented polypropylene film. New Torayfan MWX6 metallized white BOPP film is designed with a proprietary, "ultra-barrier" layer on one side for superior moisture-barrier and excellent oxygen-barrier functionality. The other side of MWX6 film is a hermetic, heat-sealable layer. New MWX6 film can be used as a monoweb or a lamination and runs on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) and vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machines. In addition, end users will especially appreciate the film's bright white, glossy appearance, which enhances a package's attractiveness inside and outside, will appeal to consumers, and can contribute to a brand's success. Available in 100 and 110 gauges (1 - 1.1 mil), MWX6 film is the ideal choice for packaging salty crisp snacks, baked goods, confectionery items, pet food, and refrigerated and frozen foods. Torayfan MWX6 film can also be used for agricultural and chemical packaging.

"Metallized white BOPP films previously available to the market were limited in barrier capability and appearance," says Kerri Boyens, Product Manager, Toray Plastics (America), Inc. "Now, new innovative MWX6 metallized white BOPP film, with superior barrier durability and a unique aesthetic quality, is available to customers seeking a competitive advantage."
