With the goal of introducing more visually attractive packaging for the confectionary market, Uflex Limited’s Flex Films division has engineered a low-opacity, good-gloss white anti-static twist wrap polyester film: FLEXPETTM F-WTG-AS.
“Converters catering to candy /confectionery brands had been asking for a white glossy substrate with low opacity for imparting superior aesthetics to their packaging,” notes Anantshree Chaturvedi, vice chairman and CEO of Flex Films International. “The daunting challenge, however, was that if you make a white opaque film the gloss quotient goes down. Owing to our special proprietary resin formulation, we have been able to engineer a white background film which is translucent (less opaque) and offers high gloss too.”
Flex Film officials say the film can be surface printed or metalized. The film also has good twist retention and is eco-friendly.
