Luxembourg (April 7th, 2014) – Jindal Films will display its broad portfolio of industry leading oriented polypropylene (OPP) and polyolefin (PO) films for packaging innovation at the Open Area at Hall 9/09-1, Interpack, Dusseldorf, Germany, May 8-14, 2014. A highlight at the booth, will be the introduction of new film technologies for a range of flexible packaging and labeling applications which can help customers improve performance and meet sustainability challenges. There will also be a celebration of Oppalyte™ OPP film which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
“The business that is now Jindal Films has always been an industry and technology leader. With Jindal Films a core business of the Jindal Group, there is a rejuvenated commitment to the global OPP films business. A testament to this commitment is the ongoing investment in new film technologies which are helping our packaging and labeling customers grow their businesses through innovation,” said Paul Griffith, executive vice president, Jindal Films.
The new solutions include Bicor™ 50 SuP 490, the first OPP-based sealant film for stand-up pouch applications. The film offers excellent stiffness for stand-up display, high transparency for optimum visibility, and outstanding moisture barrier, while providing opportunities for downgauging compared to blown linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) or cast polypropylene (CPP) alternatives.
Metallyte™ MM688 OPP film is a metallized, surface printable monoweb solution with a broad seal range and operating window for high-speed horizontal form fill and speed (HFFS) packaging. The film, with a very low temperature seal coating, can replace lamination while maintaining moisture, flavor and aroma barriers to keep products tasting and smelling fresh.
Label-Lyte™ 52LLC247 film is a new white lightweight oriented PO film offering excellent converting characteristics, conformability and flexibility for pressure sensitive label (PSL) applications. The conformability and squeezability of the film allows the label to remain intact and appear new even after multiple squeezes of the container. The printable surface enables point-of-sale impact to be enhanced for a wide range of products including health and beauty care, household products, beverages, canistered or bottled food.
“These new films follow the introduction of several technologies in the past 12-18 months. And, with many more in the development pipeline, this is a particularly dynamic and exciting time for the company and our customers,” said Griffith. “But, of course, we cannot forget Oppalyte, an industry-leading brand that was introduced 30 years ago. In fact, we still have staff who remember its introduction which is an indication of the expertise, experience and commitment that remains in this organization.”
