Biaxis: Increase of BOPA film production

Finish Biaxis, a joint venture between Nichimen Europe plc, UK, and the Wihuri group, Finland, has announced plans for a capacity expansion for co-extruded biaxially oriented polyamide (BOPA) films at its Lahti site in Finland. With the expansion, to be in place by Q2 2003, Biaxis, will be able to produce 7,000 t/y of the films. The new capacity will be used in part of high value-added products such as high oxygen barrier films. The expansion makes Biaxis one of the leading suppliers for BOPA films in Europe.
