Demand for metallized-barrier BOPP for use in tri-laminations propels development of a versatile packaging innovation.

North Kingstown, Rhode Island — Toray Plastics (America), Inc. (, announces to consumer packaged goods manufacturers and packaging converters the introduction of new Torayfan® PC5 metallized BOPP film, a versatile ultra-high oxygen- and moisture- barrier film that can be used in tri-laminations, as a foil replacement, and as an overwrap lamination or wrapper. New Torayfan PC5 high-barrier metallized BOPP (, 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. It can also be used as a cold-seal layer and as part of a lamination for high-quality confectionery wrappers and bakery overwraps.

Advanced PC5 metallized OPP film is designed with an ultra-high-barrier layer resistant to crazing on one side. The other side is corona treated for excellent bond strength in cold-seal adhesive applications and in extrusion and adhesive 3-ply laminations. With its guaranteed protection against oxygen and moisture in gas-flushed applications, PC5 film ensures that food manufacturers’ products will stay fresh throughout shelf life and brand integrity will be maintained. PC5 OPP film is available in 60 gauge (15 um) and is designed to run on HFFS and VFFS packaging equipment. End users and converters can now specify that Torayfan PC5 film be used as the barrier layer in laminations for a vast array of packaging applications, including cookies, snacks, specialty food items, dried fruits, pet food, powdered hot chocolate and cheese, spices, cough drops, and more.

It has superior oxygen- and moisture-barrier functionality, is versatile and readily available, and is an economical solution, particularly when compared with foil.”
