Innovia Films have launched breathable, biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films, PropaFresh P2G and P2GAF. This range of permeable, non-perforated films is the direct result of work carried out at Innovia Films’ own research and development facility.
The ability of PropaFresh P2G to breathe makes it ideal for extending the shelf life of a range of prepared fresh produce. This presents a unique challenge as fresh produce continues to respire following harvesting, processing and packing.
In addition to the new polymer formulation of PropaFresh P2G, a sister film PropaFresh P2GAF, has been developed, which provides anti-mist properties.
The feature of PropaFresh P2G is that it has an oxygen permeability of 3000 (cm³/m² 24hrs) and carbon dioxide permeability of 12000 (cm³/m² 24hrs). This ratio is maintained by increasing the volume gas exchange. The products keep their freshness and shelf appeal maintaining the organoleptic properties.
Benefits to the customer using PropaFresh P2G & P2GAF are heat sealability on sides, printability, seal integrity; food contact approved and peelable seals to make the pack easy to open.
