New generation clear-barrier films
July 7, 2011
Toray Plastics Plastics (America), Inc. introduces to packagers and converters new, technologically advanced Torayfan® CBH and CBLH clear-barrier biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films designed to be used as mono-webs and as alternatives to PVdC-coated film.
New Torayfan CBH film’s advanced friction properties create a low CoF, which enables faster processing on high-speed VFFS and HFFS equipment. CBH film also eliminates the need for over-lacquers used to maintain a low CoF, and therefore provides an inherent economic advantage. CBH film’s low seal-initiation temperature (SIT) and broad heat-seal window further expedite processing and manufacturing.
New Torayfan CBLH film has the same characteristics as CBH film, and it offers an improved sealant layer that provides greater seal strength and a better hermetic seal.
Both CBH film and CBLH film are twice as effective in protecting against moisture-vapor transmission as standard BOPP films are. Better hermetic seals and improved barrier protection help maintain product freshness and brand integrity. Applications for the new films include baked goods, crackers, cookies, and confectionery items.
