Cosmo Films has developed a new transparent printable bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film, TeploR, with a higher heat resistance.
According to the company statement, the FMCG brands and the entire packaging industry are aiming to recycle waste generated from flexible packaging. BOPP films have an excellent recyclability however most of the flexible packaging is made with different plastic materials making it difficult to recycle.
TeploR has been engineered to work as a printing layer allowing mono material structures in multi-layer laminates for various packaging applications in both food and non-food segments. The film has excellent slip properties, good machinability and has a great performance on high-speed VFFS and HFFS machines. It has good thermal stability (no shrinkage) upto 185˚C; which is more when compared to conventional BOPP films (145-155˚C). TeploR will prove to be a good replacement in packaging machines where the sealing temperatures are higher.
Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films, said: ‘The TeploR film has an excellent printable surface at high converting speeds, will not shrink or form wrinkles and can be recycled easily. We have also gone ahead and patented the product in the company’s name.’
