Toray Announces Metallized BOPP


NORTH KINGSTON, RI | Toray Plastics (America) reports the launch of Torayfan PWX5, a metallized BOPP film that is designed for use as a high-performance inner moisture- and oxygen-barrier web in gas-flushed applications. 

One side of the film is vacuum-deposited aluminum on company’s proprietary ultra-barrier layer, which produces a packaging film said to have superior metal adhesion and a shiny appearance. The other side of the film has a stable coefficient of friction (COF) and is heat-sealable. Company says product offers high moisture-, aroma-, and flavor-barrier protection, and its excellent barrier durability makes it the preferred choice for applications requiring an extended shelf life. Also called well suited for the packaging of salty, flavorful snacks, cookies, crackers, biscuits, and confectionery items.

"The ongoing expansion of global distribution channels makes shelf life a primary concern of the CPG," says Kerri Boyens, product manager of the Torayfan Division. "PWX5 metallized BOPP film, with its barrier-protection capabilities, is the solution to a significant packaging challenge."
