Innovia Films adds thinner, high yield, cavitated BOPP IML film meets EUP50
Innovia Films has extended the BOPP material range by developing a thinner version, EUP50, to accompany the Rayoform EUP60 into the global market and to deliver thinner material.
At only 50 microns, and with a density of 0.55 g/cm3, EUP50 is a high yield, high opacity, matt in-mould label (IML) film.
The BOPP material is in line with “Design for Recycling” recommendations given by RecyClass, that stated that PP-based in-mould label technology is considered fully compatible with coloured PP recycling.
“EUP50 is perfect for labels for small-to-medium sized packaging in all food areas, whether you are moulding to polypropylene or polyethylene containers,” explains Alasdair McEwen, product manager labels & graphics at Innovia Films.
McEwen adds: “EUP50 allows you to downgauge significantly where a thicker film is not needed, but also has the added benefit of reducing distortion in thin wall containers and lids after moulding.”
According to Innovia Films, the key to the success of EUP50 is the material science behind its formulation, which has ensured ink adhesion using UV cured and conventional offset inks, even at extremely high sheet feeding speeds.
Lucija Kralj, labels business unit director at Innovia films adds: “Films for IML are a core part of our label offerings here at Innovia, and the addition of EUP50 to our range is just the next step in building an innovative portfolio of products, with more additions to come.”
