Toray Plastics introduces third generation polypropylene packaging films

Toray Plastics (America) has introduced third generation of Torayfan transparent and high-barrier polypropylene packaging films.

The new Torayfan CB3 high-barrier BOPP films, which are free from PVdC, provides enhanced barrier-durability protection for nuts, seeds, snacks, cookies, dried fruit and confectionary items.

Toray’s CB3 films can be used for bags, pouches, stand-up pouches, and flow wrap.

Produced by using the firm’s advanced formulation, the new polypropylene packaging films are available in sealable and non-sealable versions.

Toray’s new high-barrier BOPP films offer enhanced oxygen-barrier protection along with better moisture barrier.

Alternative to thicker OPP films, the thinner 70-guage and 80-gauge CB3 films can withstand the pressures of laminating and converting processes without any degradation to barrier performance.

Toray Plastics (America)’s Torayfan polypropylene films division associate product manager Tammy Williamson said: “These are very sophisticated films that combine a modified base film and complex coating to achieve impressive barrier.

“In addition, consumers today want to see the item they are purchasing; it helps them feel confident that the food and ingredients are fresh. CB3 films offer the transparency and freshness protection they expect.”

According to Williamson, CB3 films serve as an alternative to acrylic-coated and AlOx-coated films, EVOH sealant web films, and metallized BOPP films and run on VFFS and HFFS equipment.

Toray Plastics produces polyester, polypropylene, bio-based, and metallized films for flexible and rigid packaging, lidding, graphic, industrial, optical and electronic applications.

In addition, the firm produces polyolefin, polypropylene and polyethylene foams for the automotive and flooring industries.
