Toray Plastics (America), Inc., a leading manufacturer of metallized films for flexible and rigid packaging has expanded its portfolio of white films.
It now offers consumer product goods companies and converters five new Torayfan white-pigmented metallized biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films. The new films comes both in sealable and non-sealable versions with a variety of heat-seal strengths. End users can also obtain preferred oxygen and moisture-barrier levels. End users and converters are able to manufacture a duplex instead of a triplex lamination in many applications using Toray’s film that combines pigment, sealant, and barrier. Salted crisp snacks, cookies, protein bars, and confectionery items are some of the applications of Toray’s films. High-barrier cavitated white metallized versions are also part of the Toray’s portfolio of films.
Tammy Williamson, Associate Product Manager, Torayfan Division, said, “CPG companies wanted an aesthetically pleasing high-barrier alternative to traditional metallized and cavitated white metallized films. These new pigmented films offer robust barrier-durability after converting, extended shelf life, and a clean, bright white appearance, all of which enhance brand integrity.”
Torayfan MPX4, MP5H, MPHX5, and PCP5 films are suitable for gas-flushed applications. Toray’s portfolio runs both on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) and vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machines.
Toray Plastics (America), Inc., a subsidiary of Toray Industries, Inc. is the world leader in synthetic fibers and textiles, carbon fibers, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and high-performance films having annual sales exceeding US$19 billion.
