These films meet the packaging industry’s need for highly functional, single-material solutions that can be more easily separated and recycled.
CPPouch PP film for stand-up and pillow pouches offers excellent functionality and differentiated performance for narrow web and traditional pouch converting markets. In addition to improved sustainability and recyclability, PP-based pouches can offer operational efficiency and can be designed for low haze, directional tear, and higher stiffness advantages versus polyethylene pouches. In order to expand upon solutions where this unique pouch film can be used, a version suitable for retort applications is in development. They also provide a barrier to moisture and options for oxygen barrier.
“Our CPPouch polypropylene pouch solutions give manufacturers an important tool for improving sustainability of packaging materials,” said Mark VanSumeren, Director New Business Development at Profol. “Our U.S. manufacturing facility is also certified to meet the Safe Quality Food (SQF) code for the manufacture of food packaging.”
CPPouch solutions include a coextruded, polypropylene-based film material. There are no extra lamination steps and no need for adhesive curing, which allows pouch manufacturers to increase production speed and reduce costs.
