Protecting the product remains the number one priority of our customers. Maintaining the product’s quality throughout its shelf life is important and in some instances, shelf life expansion is desirable.

For many foods and particularly dried foods, moisture ingress may be detrimental and the packaging needs to present a barrier to water vapour. Equally, many food ingredients are susceptible to oxygen deterioration and therefore demand protection from oxygen.

Our range of Propafilm™ film presents a wide range of barrier films that demonstrate excellent moisture and gas barrier. Discover the options with our BOPP films.

  •  Excellent moisture barrier makes our BOPP films ideally suited to dry products wrapping.
  • Films with excellent gas barrier available, for gas flushing applications or for products which suffer from oxygen deterioration.
  • Films with aroma barrier properties to protect delicate flavors.
  • UV barrier possible through a choice of white films.
  • Mineral oil barrier solutions, validated by an external independent laboratory.
  • Hermetic sealing films enable further protection in the seal area.
