Article-Toray to debut new film solutions

Toray Plastics (America) Inc. will showcase leading-edge polypropylene, polyester, and metalized film innovations that the company promises will engage and inspire consumer product goods manufacturers, and converters at Pack Expo 2010 (Chicago; Oct. 31–Nov. 2). The new line of heat-sealable PP white cavitated films are for use in snack food, confectionery, ice cream, and industrial applications.

Toray’s new TreaTear PP directional-tear sealant films for retort and non-retort gusseted and non-gusseted pouch applications will also be on display. Visitors to Toray’s booth #2935 will learn about advancements in polyester lidding films; metalized PET; low-COF clear-barrier PP film for PVdC replacement; PWX5, a heat-sealable metalized BOPP; and ultrathin and bio-based films.

Additionally, Toray will share its knowledge about the distinct advantages to be gained in partnering with a single-source provider. “End users and converters tell us they are interested in film performance, value, and sustainability considerations that support new product development and product enhancements,” said Christopher Roy, director of sales and marketing, Torayfan Polypropylene Film Division for Toray Plastics (America) Inc. “To meet their needs Toray offers customers the freedom to source materials from one trusted manufacturer that provides an unparalleled array of advanced, thin OPP, PET, and metalized films, which can be bundled for even greater value.”

Toray Plastics (America) Inc. is a manufacturer of polyester and polypropylene films for flexible and rigid packaging, lidding, graphic, industrial, optical, and electronic applications. The company is a subsidiary of Toray Industries Inc. [email protected]
