NORTH KINGSTOWN – Toray Plastics (America) Inc. has come out with five new white metallized biaxially oriented polypropylene – or BOPP films – in its Torayfan product line up, the company announced in a press release.
The plastic films are used by consumer-product goods companies for packaging for things such as cookies, protein bars and salted crisp snacks, Toray said. The new BOPP films come in sealable or non-sealable versions, in a variety of heat-seal strengths.
“CPG companies wanted an aesthetically pleasing, high-barrier alternative to traditional metallized and cavitated white metallized films,” said Tammy Williamson, associate product manager, Torayfan Division. “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.”
Toray Plastics (America) makes polyester, polypropylene, bio-based, and metallized films for flexible and rigid packaging, lidding, graphic, industrial, optical and electronic applications. The company is a subsidiary of Toray Industries, a global company based in Japan that manufactures synthetic fibers and textiles, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and more.
