NOWOSTRAIGHT - MDO Film with linear tear properties

Our range of customer-focused specialty films is perfectly complemented by NOWOSTRAIGHT, an uniaxial stretched flat film. This film has been designed in accordance with the requirements of films used in flexible packaging such as stand-up pouches for food & non-food related packaging. In laminates the particular straight tearing behaviour of the film is transferred to the entire composite laminate. A weakening of the barrier properties, as it occurs by the application of laser perforation or laser scribing, is avoided.

There are also other potential applications, and a variety of films tailored for the needs of your application is possible following consultation. Please contact us for further information.

Outstanding properties of the film include

- linear and parallel tearing
- balanced sealability features
- a relatively high resistance to temperature (important for sterilisation)
- low levels of water vapour permeability

NOWOPAQUE - Low Density MDO Film

Our NOWOPAQUE film-quality product is a low-density, monoaxially-based polypropylene film.

Due to its velvety appearance, printed images not only have a superior appearance. The printability itself has been significantly improved by the characteristics of the surface.

In packaging applications the ‘dry hold’ with its extra special surface really stands out.

Another outstanding feature of the film is the linear and parallel tearing.

NOWOPAQUE’s cutting characteristics are also highly impressive, i.e. in comparison with pigmented films it has higher slitting speeds, a longer blade service life, and lower levels of abrasion (dust).

Its naturally opaque coloured versions are predominantly available in pastel-coloured shades only.

NOWOPAQUE films are suitable for direct contact with food products.

NOWOCARRY - MDO Films for Carry Handles

For enhanced comfort when carrying multipacks (e.g. six-packs of PET-bottles), these are self-adhesive carrying handles with an insert as part of the holding section.

The carrying handle consists essentially of a transparent film strip with high tensile strength, which has an adhesive coating on one side. In order to neutralise the holding region, paper is used for standard applications. This paper insert also serves as a carrier for product advertising and sales related information (e.g. barcode). In order to increase the level of comfort while carrying, and to avoid the insert edges breaking, our monoaxially-oriented foamed film NOWOLABEL C can be used in place of the paper insert.

Our tensilised polypropylene film NOWOCARRY enhances the required features – an extremely high stress resistance with low elongation – providing an ideal combination. The typical strip width is 25 mm.

NOWODECOR - Foamed MDO Films for Decoration Tapes

Polypropylene foamed and monoaxially-oriented films (MOPP) are an attractive addition to the decoration industry. Whether it’s for gift packing with bows and rosettes or for decorating, our PP-films really introduce extra colour and cheerfulness into your lives.

Alternatively, mono or coextruded films can also be produced. Coextruded films come equipped with a compact skin layer which provides a matt (C) or gloss (HG1) surface finish. They are therefore, particularly suitable for printing, applying direct metallising or for flocking. Due to their closed cellular foam-based structure, the monolayer films also have a relatively smooth surface.

The foam structure provides a very low weight per unit area for various types of features, and yet, the film has strong resistance to tearing as a result of its monoaxial orientation.

We can fulfil the constantly-changing colour requests of our customers with our colour adjustment scheme, in the shortest possible period of time.

When compared to a monoaxially oriented Polypropylene film, a monoaxially stretched NOWOFILM HD film can clearly be distinguished in terms of its property profile.

The orientation of the film in Machine Direction itself gives you the impression that this really is something special. The hazy Cast Film turns into a highly transparent film, once it has been stretched lengthways.

Because of its outstanding tear propagation resistance and toughness, this film is the most suitable for situations of extreme stress.

In addition to this, the paper-like low restoring force provides the film with excellent deadfold properties.

NOWOLABEL - Foamed MDO Films for Labels

Foamed monoaxially-oriented polypropylene films (MOPP) are quite versatile and can be applied in label production.

Either as a carrying handle for fruit and vegetables or other consumer goods, as well as for lamination with craft- or thermal paper for wine glass labels and labelling banners, our quality film NOWOLABEL is most suited for promoting relevant product and manufacturer details.

Accurate print images can be achieved with a surface, founded on a closed cell structure.

A high yield can be obtained with high foaming ratios. Despite its low density, the film has a high level of tear resistance due to its monoaxial orientation.

For steadily increasing requests concerning print quality (higher contrast, clearer print image) we can offer our single-sided coextruded version (foamed/compact) NOWOLABEL C with an even smoother print surface.

NOWOLINER - MDO Films for Release Liners

Joining mechanisms for industrial or private applications are made better by adopting this adhesion technique. Highly efficient bonding can be achieved by using double sided adhesive tapes.

Our film-quality NOWOLINER for release liners provides the right type of double-sided adhesive tape covering after they have been silicone coated on both sides. The most frequent non-solvent or solvent-based platinum curing silicone systems and the simple processing of UV curing silicone systems are founded on radical or cationic polymerisation.

Due to the high levels of stiffness and mechanical strength, these monoaxially-oriented films can be applied without any issues during both manual and mechanical operations. The release liners are used as film strips or as die cuts.

For example, NOWOLINER can be used as liners for self-adhesive envelopes, bags and cartons. Envelopes and small cardboard parcels use the release tape for the self-adhesive seal and because of the MOPP properties, the packages are easy to open. They can also be used in the assembly process for mobile phones and automobiles.

Modern-day product designers love to use their imagination. They produce highly unusual designs for consumer goods. Round, oval and bulb shaped cans, jars which taper towards the top edge, bottles with stoppers and protrusions, along with convex or concave containers are just some of the ranges of packaging recently created.

It goes without saying that these artistic containers must be decorated with brand names, images and descriptions before they can be used.

Under these circumstances, films are often printed and placed over the containers – a relatively inexpensive method which not only embellishes the product, but which also provides the container with a certain stability.

With shrinkage values in excess of 40 % in the machine direction, the shrinkage properties of our NOWOSHRINK films significantly exceed those of standard types of BOPP film.

Although similar shrinkage properties for shrinkage films can be achieved using polystyrene, our NOWOSHRINK films provide the opportunity for both, with labels and containers produced from the same polymer. It is a solution which allows the most effective type of recycling potential.

NOWOSTRONG - MDO Films with ultra high strenght

With our new ultra strong polypropylene film, we are now able to offer strong characteristics similar to those of metallic properties. However, the low density of PP is maintained to provide an unbeatable combination!

Imagine you need to move a container which weighs as much as an elephant (approx. 3.5 tons). Instead of using strong cable connections, a 53-centimeter-wide film should prove sufficient. When packing steel cables, this film can be used to cover the products without any need for significant expansion.

Extreme strength combined with low expansion are exactly the right types of product features demanded by the strictest requirements for packaging and transport applications.

We would be only too pleased to satisfy your demands, whether for naturally translucent or for colored products. Of course, this polypropylene film is also suitable for printing, coating, lining etc.

NOWOTAPE - MDO Films for Adhesive Tapes

High-strength tapes are a typical feature of monoaxially-oriented (tensilised) polypropylene films (MOPP). The high levels of power absorption and high elastic modulus under simultaneously low elongation help to provide particularly favourable characteristics with regard to the following applications:

Securing pallets, strapping pallets with mixed or collected loads, bundling profiles and pipes, additional reinforcements for cardboard boxes, closing heavy packaging, securing heavy and the heaviest packaged goods including coils, securing electrical components for transportation, as well as with lacquered and coated surfaces, e.g. for household appliances (white goods) and items of furniture.

MOPP strapping tapes maintain their efficiency over a wide range of temperatures. They are resistant to abrasion, and are damp proof and tear proof.

Furthermore, the MOPP strapping tape provides an ideal advertising medium, when printed with a logo or advertising slogan.

NOWOTEAR - MDO Films for Tear Tapes

Excellent tensile features and maximum tear properties help to make monoaxially-oriented polypropylene film (MOPP) the most successful base material for tear strips.

The tear strip can be used as an opening aid and is becoming even more popular as goods are becoming packaged even more tightly, and the risk of damaging the packed goods when opening with knives and scissors remains very high. This level of reassurance for the customer results in a winning product image.

For the tear strips for overwrapping films, we offer a thickness range of 26 - 40 μm. For cardboard tear strips, the film thickness is within the range of 60 - 125 μm, depending upon the amount of load.

The advantage over BOPP films is the fact that MOPP has a significantly lower elongation. This allows application machines to run at a considerably higher speed. As higher the tensile strength as smaller and thinner the tear tape can be. More length can be wounded on the spool and the result is more efficiency in production and a faster machine set-up.

For envelopes made from cardboard and for small parcels the function of the release liner for the self-adhesive seal and the tear strip can be combined in a single adhesive tape made from MOPP film.

For re-assessing packaging, or for advertising purposes, the tear strips are now available in improved print quality.

NOWOGREEN - MDO Films from renewable raw materials

With its new product NOWOGREEN, NOWOFOL® is able to offer mono-oriented films made from renewable and biodegradable raw materials.

The proportion of the aforementioned raw materials varies between 30 and 80 %, according to the type of film. The raw materials used meet the strict composting criteria specified by the European standard EN 13432, as well as the American standard ASTM 6400. CO2, water, energy and biomass are produced during decomposition.

Exceptional strength, low expansion or targeted shrinkage are exactly the right types of product features for your packaging application, from packaging adhesive tapes through to tear tapes and carry handles.

The exceptional level of transparency is an important improvement, which helps such things as promotional literature to really stand out.

NOWOGREEN films are customised according to your requirements with regard to flexibility, rigidity and film shrinkage.

NOWOSTRAIGHT - Mono-oriented Polypropylene Films with linear tear properties

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.
