Toray Plastics (America): Directional-tear polypropylene sealant films for non-retort market
Torayfan® TreaTear™ LT52 and LT72 polypropylene films for non-retort applications, from Toray Plastics, perform as drop-in replacements for LDPE sealant films in stand-up pouch applications.
The films can be used to create attractive stand-up pouches that provide precise straight-tear and source-reduction benefits. Films also delver flexibility with the overall lamination design, as well as compatibility with zippers, spouts, and other reclosable features. Available as thin as 30 microns (1.2 mil), TreaTear films are said to offer yield advantages over the traditional 60- or 70-gauge sealant films and source-reduction benefits without compromise to rigidity or tactile properties.
