Clear barrier single-web bopp films for heat seal HFFS applications 

Jindal Films is launching the Bicor 25 and 30 MBH568 films during the CFIA tradeshow in Rennes (France).

Bicor MBH568 are clear barrier films designed to run as single webs at high speeds on HFFS (horizontal form fill seal machines) packaging machines using a new barrier coating technology in combination with Jindal Films’ well-known VLTS seal technology. MBH568 grades can be used to substitute films using PVdC coating as they provide equivalent WVTR, OTR, aroma barrier and are surface printable.

This new film type provides very high gloss, stable slip and barrier properties, great scuff resistance and additionally is resistant to alcohol spraying which is used for some baked goods packaging. 

Bicor MBH568 has higher stiffness than most barrier OPP films of equivalent thickness and can help end-user reduce further their virgin plastic usage for HFFS single web market segments. MBH568 films have a PP mono-material composition (≥ 95% polypropylene) that conforms to the CEFLEX design guidelines for a circular economy.
