Innovia Films’ fast seal coated high barrier film, Propafilm FFX26, is being used by Manor Bakeries to wrap its newest product development, Mr Kipling Cake Bites.
Part of Innovia Films’ Fast Flexible Films (FFF) range, Propafilm FFX, a Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) material, is coated on one side with a unique water-based low temperature sealing coating for high speed running and on the other with a water-based high barrier PVdC for added product protection from moisture, oxygen and aroma taint.
This makes it a suitable film for flow wrapped biscuits and bakery goods.
According to Alasdair McEwen, Innovia Films’ Market Manager – Biscuits & Bakery, the Propafilm FFF range is ideally suited for wrapping small units, such as Mr Kipling Cake Bites, at high speed as its performance minimises product waste, reduces set-up times and significantly cuts down on the amount of line supervision and adjustments required.
The Mr Kipling Cake Bites are wrapped on new, high-speed SPS machines supplied by Italiana Pack Systems, part of the PFM Group.
The machines run at 360 pieces/minute. The Propafilm FFX26 was selected for its machine performance and barrier properties, giving protection to the new product.
