Toray Plastics (America) has launched its third generation of Torayfan high-barrier biaxially oriented polypropylene BOPP films.

The company attributed the latest film’s introduction to consumer demand for fresh, shelf-stable food in transparent packaging, as well as CPG companies’ preference for a PVdC-free, high-barrier film that delivers extended shelf-life performance.

The new Torayfan CB3 portfolio was designed with Toray’s formulation and a PVdC-free coating.

Toray noted that the films offer improved oxygen and moisture barrier protection compared to previous versions.

"These are very sophisticated films that combine a modified base film and complex coating to achieve impressive barrier."

Toray Plastics (America) Torayfan polypropylene films division associate product manager Tammy Williamson said: “These are very sophisticated films that combine a modified base film and complex coating to achieve impressive barrier.

“In addition, consumers today want to see the item they are purchasing; it helps them feel confident that the food and ingredients are fresh.

“CB3 films offer the transparency and freshness protection they expect.”

The 70 and 80 gauge CB3 films are available in both sealable and non-sealable variants, and act as an alternative to thicker OPP films.

The materials can withstand the rigours of the laminating and converting processes without any degradation to barrier performance.

CB3 films are said to be ideal for bags, pouches, stand-up pouches and flow wrap, while other suitable applications include nuts, seeds, salted snacks, cookies, dried fruit, and confectionery items.

Furthermore, the films are intended to replace the use of acrylic-coated and AlOx-coated films, as well as EVOH sealant web films and metallised BOPP films.
