Torayfan CB3 portfolio is a new generation of transparent, PVdC-free, high-barrier BOPP films.
Torayfan CB3 portfolio is a new generation of transparent, PVdC-free, high-barrier BOPP films.

Toray Plastics (America) has launched the third generation of Torayfan clear, high-barrier BOPP films, so as to meet the demand for fresh, shelf-stable food in transparent packaging.

The new Torayfan CB3 portfolio is manufactured with Toray’s proprietary formulation and a patented PVdC-free coating. The films offer superior oxygen-barrier protection along with excellent moisture barrier and are available in sealable and non-sealable versions.

Toray’s new CB3 technology has an oxygen transmission rate (O2TR) of 0.06 cc/100in²/day at 73° F, 0% RH, without any compromise to moisture-barrier properties. The previous generation of CB films has an O2TR value of 0.25.

In addition, the robust 70- and 80-gauge CB3 films are a thinner alternative to thicker OPP films and enable source reduction, yield, and economic benefits, says the company. The CB3 films’ strength also enables them to withstand the rigors of the laminating and converting processes without any degradation to barrier performance.

CB3 films are suited for bags, pouches, stand-up pouches, and flow wrap. Among their applications are nuts, seeds, salted snacks, cookies, dried fruit, and confectionery items.

“These are very sophisticated films that combine a modified base film and complex coating to achieve impressive barrier. In addition, consumers today want to see the item they are purchasing; it helps them feel confident that the food and ingredients are fresh,” says Tammy Williamson, Associate Product Manager of the Torayfan Polypropylene Films Division, Toray Plastics (America), Inc.

Also important,” she says, “is CPG companies’ preference that PVdC be eliminated from packaging because of the environmental concerns associated with it. Now manufacturers are able to specify a transparent package with even greater shelf stability, without PVdC issues.”

Williamson notes that the CB3 films are also an excellent alternative to acrylic-coated and AlOx-coated films, EVOH sealant web films, and metallized BOPP films. They run on VFFS and HFFS equipment.

All CB3 films are manufactured at Toray’s world-class site in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
