Toray Plastics (America) Expands Torayfan® White Films Portfolio with the Launch of White-Pigmented Metallized BOPP Films

 

North Kingstown, Rhode Island—(September 4, 2018) 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 is a white, metallized, heat-sealable barrier web. MPX4 offers superior moisture barrier, excellent oxygen barrier, an excellent hot tack, and a wide seal range.
  • Torayfan MP5H is a white metallized film with enhanced seal strength and improved hermeticity. MP5H offers superior moisture barrier, excellent oxygen barrier, an enhanced, “over the mountain” seal strength, improved hermeticity, excellent hot tack, and a wide seal range.
  • Torayfan MPHX5 is an ultra-high-barrier coated, white, metallized film with enhanced seal strength and improved hermeticity. MPHX5 offers superior moisture and oxygen barrier, an enhanced, “over the mountain” seal strength, improved hermeticity, excellent hot tack, and a wide seal range.
  • Torayfan PCP1 is a white, metallized and opposite-side corona-treated film for cold-seal applications. PCP1 offers good moisture barrier, excellent anchorage of cold seal adhesives, excellent bonding in extrusion and adhesive laminations, and no crazing.
  • Torayfan PCP5 is an ultra-high barrier, white, metallized and opposite-side corona-treated film for barrier or cold seal applications. PCP5 offers superior moisture and oxygen barrier, excellent anchorage of cold-seal pressure-sensitive adhesives, excellent bonding in extrusion and adhesive laminations, and no crazing.
