Biodegradable oriented film (BOPLA)
Biodegradable oriented film (BOPLA)
Biaxially oriented polyamide film (BOPA) has convincing properties:

  • Very good stiffness and strength
  • Excellent high barrier properties
  • Wide temperature range

 

These properties make the various products ideal for different applications in multi-layer technology, especially in the food packaging field (e.g. for greasy and oily products).

 

Brückner has gained specific experience on how to achieve BOPA film of high quality - 14 sold lines clearly state Brückner`s leading position in BOPA technology.

BOPET film
BOPET film
Biaxially oriented polyethylene terephthalate`s (BOPET) main benefits include its stiffness, as well as its excellent temperature and puncture resistance.

Whether focusing on high efficient production of packaging film grades or getting into the optical film grades up to 400 µm - Brückner offers numerous solutions and international references.


BO-Polyester film production - biaxially oriented film

BOPP film
BOPP film
Polypropylene (PP) has become one of the leading flexible plastics packaging materials and is by far the mostly used polymer for producing biaxially oriented films (BOPP).

Traditional applications are packaging for crisps, snacks, confectionery, noodles or tobacco. New applications are wrap-around and shrinkable labels, high barrier films, synthetic paper. Line layouts for outputs above 6,000 kg/hour, production speeds up to 525 m/min and up to 10m working widths - Brückner is first and foremost in bringing such developments to the market.

BOPS film
BOPS film
In view of its excellent transparency, stiffness, strength and its good barrier properties, biaxial oriented polystyrene (BOPS) film is used today for packaging, especially in the food sector.

Brückner provides various BOPS lines for packaging applications as well as for special thin film applications, e.g. labels, envelope windows, twist wrap.
