Toray Plastics: New Metallized OPP Film Boasts Higher Performance

Toray Plastics has developed a co-extruded metallized OPP film that reportedly has improved sealing, barrier, and pinhole resistance over conventional OPP packaging materials. Called PCFS, the film eliminates the need for a sealant extrusion coating step. The product has an innovative heat-sealing characteristic, activated at relatively low temperature, that provides an outstanding and thorough hermetic seal. Moisture and oxygen barriers are claimed to be high, and pinhole resistance is said to be greater than on conventional metallized OPP films. The PCFS grade also has improved stiffness and dead-fold properties, which upgrade package appearance.
