Innovia Films Launches Clear, Durable Film for Reclosable Applications
Innovia Films is launching a new biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) Rayoface facestock film specifically designed for reclosable applications, such as wet wipes. This clear film’s strength comes from its thickness of 92 microns. While it is thick, it still has exceptional clarity, which allows printed branding on a wet wipe pack to show through. The film also has a special print and adhesive receptive coating to ensure high-quality print performance.
“The market for wet wipes has grown considerably over the last few years and brand managers have tried a range of options to improve the consumers experience when opening and reclosing a pack,” says Richard Southward, global product manager, labels. “We have taken on board the various requirements shared with us and are confident that our strong reclosable film is ideal for both large and small packs. The film’s robustness allows the pack to be easily opened and resealed without losing its stiffness. The fact that this performance can be achieved with a mono film, eliminating the need to laminate several layers together, reduces costs and resources.”
The film can be printed via a wide variety of print processes including offset, screen, letterpress and flexo. BOPP’s natural resistance to moisture ensures the film will perform on a wide range of pack sizes across different applications.
