BOPP is a bi-axially oriented polypropylene film designed for flexible packaging, packaging, label & Print finishing applications. OPP, oriented polypropylene, is a flexible material derived from melting and orienting a polymer called polypropylene.
Biaxially oriented means that the polypropylene film is stretched in machine direction and in transverse direction. The main feature of BOPP films are improved stiffness, high tensile strength, excellent optics and good water barrier properties. They range from 12 to 50 microns and are most commonly 12 to 20 microns.
BOPP films have the advantage of being non-toxic and fully recyclable.
