Toray Plastics (America) has unveiled a film for gas-flushed packaging applications offering enhanced oxygen and moisture barrier properties.

Torayfan MWX6 metallized white biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film is designed with a proprietary, "ultra-barrier" layer on one side for moisture-barrier and oxygen-barrier functionality and the other side is a hermetic, heat-sealable layer.

The film can be used as a monoweb or a lamination and runs on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) and vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machines.

It is available in 100 and 110 gauges (1 - 1.1 mil), and can be used to package salty crisp snacks, baked goods, confectionery items, and refrigerated and frozen foods.

"Metallized white BOPP films previously available to the market were limited in barrier capability and appearance​," said Kerri Boyens, Product Manager, Toray Plastics (America).

"Now, new innovative MWX6 metallized white BOPP film, with superior barrier durability and a unique aesthetic quality, is available to customers seeking a competitive advantage."
