Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) is a thermoplastic polymer or polypropylene film which is “Biaxially Oriented.” Biaxially Oriented means the film is stretched in both the machine direction (MD) and across machine direction (AMD). It is an ideal printing surface and can be made into stickers, labels as well as textiles and a host of different plastic parts & materials. It is used for decorative packaging or gift wrapping. It can be white, clear or metal-colored. The ability to make clear BOPP film agrees the creation of transparent labels to show off the contents of clear containers. With the appropriate inks & adhesives, labels are waterproof which immersed in ice-water or subjected to high-humidity without failing. It is used in vast array of flexible packaging applications such as labels, metallizing, pressure sensitive tapes, stationery, consumer products as well as a wide variety of non-packaging uses. The key properties include ruggedness, moisture resistance, fatigue resistance, very low toxicity, controllable transparency and flexible finishing options.
