HGFL BOPP (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene) Transparent Film



Heat-sealing transparent BOPP film with a low threshold of welding, with high coefficient of friction for a special purposes, for high quality rotogravure and flexographic printing and lamination. The main advantages are: A wide range of heat sealing; contains antistatic and antiblocking additives; excellent optical properties; good mechanical properties; intended for contact with food; high coefficient of friction stable in time; without coatings and primers.

Technological properties

Application areas

High quality solvent based rotogravure and flexographic printing; solvent based and solvent free lamination with polyurethane adhesives; manufacture of flexible packaging for food products; for vertical VFFS and horizontal HFFS packaging machines; laminating with PE and CPP films with a high content of slipping additives; to reduce the impact of slip additives transition from PE or CPP film to the BOPP film side, which leads to a significant coefficient of friction reduction. The high coefficient of friction of the HGFL film, provides a certain margin in this case. For a case in which the bondage process of packed products is present, for example, in pasta packaging; to save the packed packages in a single group without sliding over each other (if necessary); in the other cases, when slip reduction on BOPP side of the flexible packaging is necessary; for cold seal glue frame coating onto UT film side (if necessary).


Kinetic coefficient of friction µ= 0.4-0.65 (GOST 27492, ISO 8295, ASTM D 1894).


HGFL BOPP films comprise: A treated modified heat sealable copolymer skin layer, a transparent oriented polypropylene core layer, a heat sealable, non treated skin layer with low seal intention temperature and high coefficient of friction.
