NEW SPECIALTY FILMS
"NEW" DEGRADABLE BOPP FILM:
This new film is 100 percent degradable while offering the same strength, clarity
, sealability and printability as standard BOPP film. When disposed of in a landfill
site the film will degrade in the presence of oxygen, heat and stress within 12-24
months and will even degrade in sunlight and wind when dropped as litter. This
new degradable BOPP film is substantially cheaper than compostable film (PLA)
as well as being
25 percent lighter by weight when comparing the same gauges

bacteria that can penetrate the package. These additives also eliminate bacterial
growth on the film itself.
"NEW" HIGH OTR BOPP FILM:

of laminated package structures over traditional films
