Japan-based Toppan Printing has introduced the new GL FILM Digital Printing Grade film for retort packaging, using its transparent GL Barrier film.

Developed in collaboration with HP, the new film is compatible with HP Indigo digital presses, which are used for flexible packaging.

The product is scheduled to be commercialised later this month.

The GL FILM Digital Printing Grade film can be used for retort pouches containing food products such as pasta sauces and beans.

“The recent demand for barrier films has increased in Japan due to growing concerns over food wastage and sustainability.”

The film provides same heat-resistant, oxygen and water vapour barrier performance levels as conventional films.

It also enables digital packaging, which facilitates the provision of a wide range of package types in small lots, based on the varied requirements of the consumers.

The recent demand for barrier films has increased in Japan due to growing concerns over food wastage and sustainability.

The changing lifestyle and increasing number of foreign visitors also escalated the need for proper packaging.

To address this challenge, Toppan Printing introduced the Toppan FP Digital Solution last year in a bid to provide optimal flexible packages for the production of different products in small lots.

With the introduction of GL FILM Digital Printing Grade, the company will be able to enhance its portfolio.

Furthermore, the applications of GL FILM Digital Printing Grade film are planned to be expanded to the food, medical, pharmaceutical and industrial materials sectors, where resistance to high temperatures and humidity is required.
