Why BOPP Film is the Go-To Choice for Product Packaging
When it comes to product packaging, there are a lot of options out there. But one material that is quickly becoming the go-to choice for manufacturers and suppliers alike is BOPP film. This versatile plastic film offers a range of benefits, from its durability and flexibility to its excellent printability and cost-effectiveness. WEIFU specializes in production and development of polymer films and packaging materials including BOPP film, with over years of industry experience.
What is BOPP Film?
BOPP (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene) film is a thin, flexible plastic sheet made from polypropylene resin. The film is produced by stretching the plastic in two directions, both longitudinally and transversely, to orient the polymer molecules in a specific direction. This process results in a material with excellent mechanical and optical properties.
BOPP film is characterized by its high tensile strength, clarity, gloss, and stiffness. It is also resistant to moisture, oil, grease, and chemicals, making it an ideal material for packaging applications. Additionally, BOPP film can be easily printed, coated, laminated, and metallized, which further enhances its versatility.
Due to its unique combination of properties, BOPP film is used extensively in the food and beverage industry, as well as other industries such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and textiles. Its applications range from flexible packaging, labels, tapes, and lamination to decorative films, book covers, and technical films.
Our films cover BOPP, CPP, BOPE, CPE, metallized film, woven sacks, and other series products. We aim to provide customers with professional customized flexible packaging solutions.
Applications of BOPP Film
BOPP film is a versatile material with a wide range of applications. Here are some of the most common uses of BOPP film:
Food packaging: BOPP film is widely used in food packaging due to its excellent barrier properties against moisture and other environmental factors. It can be used for packaging items such as chips, crackers, cookies, and other dry snacks.
Cigarette packaging: BOPP film is commonly used in cigarette packaging as it offers excellent protection against moisture, light, and other environmental factors that can affect the quality of cigarettes. Labels: BOPP film is an ideal material for printing labels due to its printability and transparency. It can be used for product labels, barcode labels, and promotional labels.
Tape: BOPP film is commonly used as a base material for adhesive tapes due to its durability and strength. Lamination: BOPP film is often used for lamination purposes, where it is applied to paper or cardboard to provide a protective layer against moisture, dirt, and other environmental factors.
