BOPP Films Enhancing the Quality of the Food Packaging

by Deepika Olive SEO Executive
BOPP films are made by stretching polypropylene film in both directions: machine and transverse. The film is used for wide range of applications starting from packaging, laminating and labeling. The most preferred substrate used for packaging is BOPP films due to its high moisture barrier properties, clarity, seal ability, shelf appeal and the pack being a homogenous structure.

Since it is a high heat sealable printable film, it can be used for food packaging. BOPP films have high recyclability and have yield benefits making it fit for labeling. The numerous advantages and benefits make BOPP film the most preferred material in the packaging industry across the globe.

The BOPP film has a high demand globally due to the following benefits:

  • Excellent Product Quality: The polyester film manufacturers offer strong and excellent seal print which benefits the food packaging industry in protecting the quality of the food. The low seal initiation temperature and strong heat seal strength makes it the most preferable film by the packaging industry.
  • Highly Sustainable: As compared to other plastic films, BOPP film has low carbon footprint. It requires less energy to convert one form to another due to its low melting point. It is suitable for packing food as its eco friendly in nature. The polyethylene film manufacturers aim to produce films that will have less harmful effects on the environment. The reprocessed granules of BOPP can also be used to make household items like mats, chairs, tables, etc.
  • Increase shelf life extension: BOPP provides good moisture barrier to the products. This plays a major role in food packaging to increase shelf life of the products leading to less food wastage.
  • Aesthetic looks: The excellent clarity on BOPP films provides high level of appealing and presentable look to the food packaging. Multi colored printing can also be carried out on the films. The opaque film variant, glossy look and high opacity offers an aesthetic look while packing food. The metalized film variety gives metallic look to the product. 
  • Low Density: It is the most unique property of BOPP films. The low density makes the film consume less plastic and produce more yields during the conversion of one form to another. The light weight is also due to the low density making the material handling easier.

Due to its high advantages over other plastic films make BOPP films the most preferred material for food packaging globally.
