As an innovation led, specialist producer of BOPP films, Innovia Films are continuously researching new products and technologies that reduce food waste, enhance product shelf-life, enable easy opening or allow for the final pack designed to be used within the circular economy.
The addition of new UK assets has enabled us to develop new high barrier mono layer coextruded EVOH oxygen barrier films. These films will allow pack simplification, by removing/replacing layers within lamination materials that restrict recycling. Other developments include high barrier metallised films and AlOx clear high barrier films.
Polypropylene is a recyclable thermoplastic capable of being processed by virtually all common thermoplastic-processing methods and is it capable of being reprocessed into granules and converted into a wide variety of other plastic products.
Polypropylene is a highly functional low carbon footprint material offering a unique combination of properties, which when used as a packaging material, can extend the shelf-life of perishable goods and considerably reduce the overall food waste burden (itself a massive contributor to carbon emissions). Its carbon footprint is considerably lower than that of rigid packaging alternatives.
