BOPP

Bi-Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) refers to polypropylene films that are generally used for packaging snacks, pasta and confectionary goods and commonly as a collation wrap for multi-packs. The main benefits of BOPP films are is that it has great stiffness and extremely high tensile strength. BOPP also has strong barrier protection properties against water and oxygen. It offers excellent gloss and clarity. Our BOPP is available in gauges from 15-50 microns.

BOPP is corona treated on one side meaning it has very good ink adhesion with flexographic and rotogravure printers. It is suitable for single ply and lamination and can be used on a wide range of packaging machines. It has excellent hot tack and sealing strength. As BOPP is designed to be used with edible products, and thus, it is entirely food safe and produced according to EC and FDA food contact regulations.
