Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) bags are produced by laminating a reverse printed film to a woven fabric which is then manufactured into a bag. The film is stretched in both the machine direction (MD) and across machine direction (AMD). The result is a material with superior strength at low gauges, flatness, clarity, and excellent printability. This construction is in high demand due to its strength and superior picture-like print quality. Printing is achieved by applying the inks directly onto the film which is adhered to a woven fabric using a laminate coating. BOPP film is reverse printed, resulting in a protected interior print (between the film and laminate/woven fabric) which will not scratch or be easily damaged during normal use. The BOPP bag’s appeal includes dimensional stability, maximum water resistance, and high impact graphics that improve marketability, as well as optional anti-skid features. A key feature is that the same packaging equipment used for multiwall paper bags can be used to pack open mouthed BOPP bags.
We can supply a variety of custom constructions for your entire line from lightweight to high density (heavy) products. Each bag is designed to meet our customer’s specific requirements.
