If you’re a snack food manufacturer or a converter, you know how critical seal strength is and what headaches can occur when seals fail and filled packages burst or are damaged during transport in high-altitude and low-atmospheric-pressure regions of the United States. Now there’s a solution.

Introducing Toray Plastics (America)’s new Torayfan® Over-the-Mountain high-barrier BOPP films designed with the seal-strength to survive those travel stresses and beat the burst!

The new OTM films are manufactured by means of Toray’s proprietary, modified OPP core layer and a proprietary sealant, which work synergistically to provide superior seal strength and hermetic seals. Hermetic seals also ensure a proper seal through any food residue that may have migrated into seal areas, and they keep necessary oils where they belong: inside the package.

Toray’s OTM films are robust enough to allow CPGs to switch from a traditional three-ply lamination to a two-ply structure; that simplifies the converting process and promotes production efficiencies, which enable cost savings. Simplified converting also allows for productive multi-channel distribution.

Use Toray’s new OTM films for pillows, pouches, and stand-up pouches (SUP) that are specified for salty and savory snacks, cookies, crackers, biscuits, and confectionery items.
