North Kingstown, RI — Torayfan PC5, a metalized BOPP film that can be used to replace foils, in tri-lamination and as an overwrap lamination or wrapper, is being introduced by Toray Plastics (America), Inc.
The ultra-high oxygen- and moisture-barrier film features a layer resistant to crazing on one side and a corona treatment on the other, which allows for strong bond strength in cold-seal adhesive applications, extrusions and adhesive three-ply laminations, the company reports.
Kerri Boyens, product manager, Torayfan Division, notes the film is an economical solution, especially when compared with foils.
“New foods are introduced to the consumer daily and end users and converters want more than the packaging status quo,” she says. “PC5 film is an innovative foil-replacement and barrier packaging solution that offers clear competitive advantages.”
The film is available in 60 gauge and is designed to run on horizontal and vertical form, fill and seal machines, Toray reports.
