Barrier Films

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. Whether you need protection from moisture, oxygen or chemicals, discover our filmic options.


  • Excellent moisture barrier makes our BOPP films ideally suited to wrap dry products and protect them from moisture ingress. Options down to 2.3g/m2 .24hrs.
  • Our gas barrier options, protect products which suffer from oxygen deterioration and ensure long shelf life. Options down to 6 cc/m2.24hrs.
  • Our films with aroma barrier properties protect delicate flavours.
  • A choice of white films is available where UV barrier is needed.
  • Our mineral oil barrier solutions have been validated by an external independent laboratory.
