Toray Plastics (America) offers advanced metallized films as cost-effective solutions for foil-replacement applications.
Toray Plastics (America) offers advanced metallized films as cost-effective solutions for foil-replacement applications.

Toray Plastics (America), Inc. is offering barrier-durable, cost-effective MET OPP and MET PET films as alternative to aluminum foil used for packaging applications.

The availability and price of aluminum foil is affected by the ongoing anti-dumping duty and countervailing duty investigations led by the US Department of Commerce. As a result, the converting market needs other options for their packaging needs.

Regarding its metallized film for foil-replacement, Tammy Williamson, Associate Product Manager of the Torayfan Polypropylene Film Division, said that several forward-thinking customers were early adopters of MET OPP as a drop-in replacement in paper-polyethylene-foil-polyethylene (PPFP) packet and SUP packaging used for oatmeal, hot cocoa, seasonings, dried soup, rice, dried cheese, mixes, powdered beverages, and nutrition/energy drinks.

"They discovered that Toray’s advanced film technology could equal or surpass the moisture- and oxygen-barrier durability, yield and economics of traditional foil, while also helping to manufacture an attractive, resilient finished package," he said.

Toray's Torayfan PC1, PC3, PC5, and M23 MET OPP films are designed specifically for drop-in foil-replacement and buried-barrier web applications, showing superior flex-crack and puncture resistance, as well as moisture- and oxygen-barrier durability.

Williamson adds that pouches for coffee, nuts, dried fruits, and salty snacks that are made with foil are also ideally suited for foil-replacement. Lumirror MK61 and MK6HB MET PET films are designed for these packaging. They may be used as an outer layer in a two-ply lamination or as the middle layer in a three-ply lamination.

At its headquarters in North Kingstown, the US, Toray extrudes and orients its OPP and PET films, which include bio-based versions, and has the capability to metallize and coat many of them, including "dialing in" barrier and unique seal-strength characteristics for customized applications.

Toray is able to offer greater bond strength between the non-metal lamination layer and extrusion laminations/coatings when compared with regular corona-treated films. The foil-replacement films are also said to be the thinnest available in the packaging industry.
