Linear tear properties: Films for modern convenience
This film is marketed under the product name NOWOSTRAIGHT and is full of promise. However, the most important feature of the film is its linear and parallel tear property. You can now open every film packaging easily and conveniently. No messy fingers, no spills from the bag. An extremely elegant and modern version of the opening aid. No matter whether it is used for foil envelopes, stand-up pouches, or special technical solutions – with NOWOSTRAIGHT as a strong partner everything runs smoothly. "The variety of applications offers so much potential," says Wolfgang Rasp, Managing Director of NOWOFOL Kunststoffprodukte GmbH & Co. KG. "We see enormous opportunity. The films can be sterilised and sealed," explains Rasp. The film solution also bears comparison to laser scribing: as opposed to laser-machined film, the barrier against gas and water vapour is not adversely affected. Parallel linear tearing is the solution. The notch on the side ensures that the film always tears in a linear and parallel direction.
The material is suitable for direct contact with food in the EU (PIM 10/2011EG) and in the USA (FDA). The raw material, polypropylene, is completely safe regarding effects on health and can be recycled easily. The film packaging is also a true lightweight, which could mean a new future for many of the old, familiar packaging products. An absolutely successful product – one could even say innovative – but for more than 40 years, that is precisely what the Upper Bavarian-based producer has been known for.
