North Kingstown, Rhode Island -Toray Plastics (America), Inc., (www.TorayFilms.com), the only United States manufacturer of precision-performance polypropylene, polyester, and bio-based films for packaging and industrial applications, introduces to CPG's and converters new, technologically advanced Torayfan CBH and CBLH biaxially-oriented clear-barrier polypropylene 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.
"CPG's and converters are always seeking ways to improve efficiency and produce a better product, and these new clear-barrier films deliver," says Franco Chicarella, Product Manager, Torayfan Polypropylene Film Division, Toray Plastics (America), Inc. "Equipment can run faster, processing is enhanced, and the finished package maintains product freshness longer."
In addition, the new Torayfan clear-barrier films possess excellent oil resistance and an appropriate stiffness, both of which contribute to brand appeal, and their advanced mechanical properties yield significant puncture resistance.
