Honeywell trusts Italy’s CFP with nylon film distro

In a move it hopes will help its films find broader use overseas, Honeywell has formed an agreement with plastic film extruder CFP Flexible Packaging giving CPP exclusive distribution rights in Europe, the Middle East and Africa for Honeywell's Capran-brand nylon film. Honeywell began marketing these films on its own in Europe in 2008, according to a company spokesman.

Capran is the supplier's name for its simultaneously bi-axially oriented polyamide 6 (BOPA) films. In addition to food packaging, the films are used in book covers, balloons, and bags and pouches, offering strength, toughness, clarity, and an oxygen barrier to these and other applications.

CFP extrudes and converts bioriented and multilayer cast nylon films, and bioriented PET films. It has three processing facilities in Italy and claims to hold betterthan50% market share in Europe for BOPA films as well as a leadership position there in cast polyamide films. The processor will sell Capran 1200, 1500, 1500M, 2500 and 2500M grades, all of which are manufactured at Honeywell's facility in Pottsville, PA.
