Toray: Metalized BOPP film
Toray Plastics’ Torayfan PC5 metallized BOPP film is a versatile ultra-high oxygen- and moisture- barrier film that can be used in tri-laminations, as a foil replacement, and as an overwrap lamination or wrapper.
Torayfan PC5 is a durable, cost-effective replacement for foil in a typical paper/PE/foil/PE packaging structure. In addition, it is suitable for use as the inner barrier web of a tri-lamination in gas-flushed stand-up or flat pouches. It can also be used as a cold-seal layer, and as part of a lamination for high-quality confectionery wrappers and bakery overwraps.
Advanced PC5 metallized OPP film is designed with an ultra-high-barrier layer resistant to crazing on one side. The other side is corona treated for bond strength in cold-seal adhesive applications and in extrusion and adhesive 3-ply laminations. With its guaranteed protection against oxygen and moisture in gas-flushed applications, PC5 film helps ensure that food products stay fresh throughout shelf life, and brand integrity will be maintained.
PC5 OPP film is available in 60 gauge (15 um) and is designed to run on H F/F/S and V F/F/S packaging equipment. End users and converters can now specify that Torayfan PC5 film be used as the barrier layer in laminations for a vast array of packaging applications, including cookies, snacks, specialty food items, dried fruits, pet food, powdered hot chocolate and cheese, spices, cough drops, and more.
