Coveris, a leading European manufacturer of flexible packaging solutions, is launching a new, sustainable and high-performance version of its CPP film. The latest invention is a cast polypropylene film (CPP), the Coveris Print Layer (PP CPL), designed for flexible packaging of a wide range of food, pet food and non-food products.

With its improved structure, it offers outstanding stiffness that perfectly protects the product from external damage. The key factor behind CPP’s excellent performance is the ability to withstand re-shrinking at high temperatures (0% at 150°C). In addition, the mono-material is retortable and provides strong heat-seal resistance up to 180°C.

Thanks to its 100% PP based structure, it successfully minimises material waste and thus underlines Coveris’ commitment to the circular economy. “In summary, our latest film solution outperforms the standard CPP film’s characteristics and compensates some of the disadvantages the manufacturer experienced in the past. By combining the benefits of normal CPP and BOPP film, it offers ideal properties for flexible packaging of food, pet food and non-food products on the market,” comments Jan-Torsten Vollmer, Head of R&D and Quality Management at Coveris Kufstein.

The new Coveris Print Layer is also perfect for polypropylene laminates. It offers high transparency and gloss, which help brands boost their presence on the supermarket shelves. The new CPP film is available for both flexo and rotogravure printing, which ensures that the graphics catch the customer’s attention.
