BOPP MINERAL OIL BARRIER FILM RANGE EXTENSION

Innovia Films has been overwhelmed by the response to its recent launch of Propafilm RCU, its first proprietary acrylic coated BOPP film that has proven barrier to mineral oil migration for up to 1.5 years.

Andy Sweetman, Marketing Manager Packaging & Sustainability for Innovia Films explains "This is obviously an area of concern for many dried food manufacturers. We are currently running over 40 trials across Europe with existing and potential customers. Some are exciting developments. We are unable to be specific at this time, but we hope to be able to announce more details in the near future. On the back of this successful launch, our R&D team have rapidly accelerated the final stages of development work on a sister product – Propafilm RBCU, a white version."

Propafilm RBCU has all the qualities and benefits of RCU – excellent barrier, a low sealing threshold and a broader sealing range. Manufacturers and packers who prefer a solid white film now have an alternative option.
Due to its versatility, the chocolate and snack markets are likely to be interested in this product.

Sweetman continued, "Our new ‘bubble’ line investment work, which means increased capacity, will come on stream later this year. This allows us to refocus our efforts on our polypropylene range of films. In fact we are also working on another extension to the range – a one side coated variant, designed specifically for laminate applications."
