Press release date: August 4, 2014

North Kingstown, Rhode Islandá– Toray Plastics (America), announces that it will feature new, leading-edge, high-barrier flexible packaging materials that are made in America and creative packaging solutions at Pack Expo International 2014, McCormick Place, Chicago, in November. "Toray Plastics is the only United States manufacturer of precision-performance value-added polyester, polypropylene, bio-based, and metallized films," says Milan Moscaritolo, Senior Director of Sales."Sourcing advantages, performance, value, technical support, and sustainability all influence the end user's and converter's decision when choosing film. We look forward to meeting Pack Expo attendees and explaining how Toray Plastics brings those key elements together to help the customer grow his business." Moscaritolo notes that among the technologies that will be of special interest to attendees are ultra-thin, ultra-high-barrier BOPP; heat-sealable metallized BOPP; an expanded line of advanced PET lidding films; sealant technologies; metallized PET; PVdC-free and solvent-free films, and bio-based films.

Some of the films to be highlighted are:

• An expanded and enhanced line of LumiLid« brand of dual-ovenable polyester lidding films, which meet FDA standards and may be used with oven temperatures of up to 400°F for 30 minutes. LumiLid films incorporate specialty performance film and sealant layers, delivering specified performance and seal-strength characteristics. They are available in clear, white, or metallized options for refrigerated and frozen side dishes and entrees.

• New Torayfan« CBS2 film, an economical, environment-conscious, PVdC-free, clear, high-oxygen- and moisture-barrier BOPP film designed for use as the inside sealant web for the packaging of bakery items, crisp salty snacks, cookies, crackers, granola, fruit and nut mixes, and confections, as well as pet food and treats and non-food items. Heat-sealable CBS2 BOPP film is also the more economical choice when compared with aluminum oxide (AlOx)-coated films.

• New Torayfan« PC5 metallized BOPP film, an ultra-high oxygen- and moisture- barrier film usable in tri-laminations, as a foil replacement, and as an overwrap lamination or wrapper. PC5 film is a durable, cost-effective replacement for foil in a typical paper/PE/foil/PE packaging structure. In addition, it is ideally suited for use as the inner barrier web of a tri-lamination in gas-flushed stand-up or flat pouches and can also be used as a cold-seal layer and as part of a lamination for high-quality overwraps.

• New Torayfan« MWX6 metallized, bright white cavitated BOPP film, designed with a proprietary, "ultra-barrier" layer on one side for superior moisture-barrier and excellent oxygen-barrier functionality. The other side is an improved hermetic, heat-sealable layer. New MWX6 film can be used as a monoweb or a lamination.
