Exxon Chemical (Houston, TX) announced that its new modified PP film resins have been approved for use in direct contact with fatty food. Previously known as HP3, OPPERA® resins are for use in oriented, cast and shrink film monolayer and multilayer constructions.

Exxon claims that compared to conventional PP, OPPERA resins provide barrier improvements of greater than 40% in MVTR, 70% in OTR and 50% in stiffness, as well as enhanced clarity and aroma barrier characteristics.
