China-based Shiner International, an emerging global supplier of anti-counterfeiting and advanced packaging products, has received its sixteenth National Invention Patent covering the product and production process for its proprietary bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film with superior-strength heat seal properties.
The company’s BOPP film, incorporating its patented high-strength heat seal technology, is a new type of environmentally friendly flexible plastic packaging material and can replace certain complex and coated films, such as CPP and multilayer BOPP complex films.
This technology can be applied to packaging for the food, medical, and consumer products industries. The material not only reduces packaging costs for Shiner’s customers, but it also eliminates the environmental problems created by the utilization of adhesives and solvents in the manufacturing of complex and coated films.
Rising food safety and hygiene standards, increased demand for convenience and packaged foods, and the demands of feeding the world’s growing population are expected to contribute to growth in the global BOPP film market.
