Toray Plastics (America): Low seal-initiation temperature for matte BOPP food packaging film
Toray Plastics’ new Torayfan® KMS1 70-gauge biaxially-oriented heat-sealable matte polypropylene film is designed to be used as an outer web in food packaging applications requiring a premium appearance.
KMS1 film offers a low seal-initiation temperature (SIT) for lap seals—20 degrees lower than what typical sealable matte films offer—and a broad heat-seal range, which enables faster processing on high-speed form-fill-seal equipment.
Film features a low-gloss surface with excellent haze and a print adhesion layer on which the water- and solvent-based inks commonly used on rotogravure and flexographic presses print well. Also features low coefficient of friction (CoF) and the ability to bond during the manufacture of adhesive and extrusion laminations. The low CoF, along with the reliable bonding and printing, also contribute to faster, more efficient processing and package manufacturing. Applications for the new KMS1 film include salty snacks, baked goods, crackers, cookies, and confectionery items.
