In the flexible packaging industry, 2 ply Laminates are amalgamations of different or similar films designed to provide a synergy to optimise the mechanical and functional properties of each film when bonded together.
Using our in house process development expertise, we are able to bond a host of different single ply films together to provide a complete laminate solution tailored to suit the final product of the customer.
Please see below for a description of our main product specifications:
Our printed and unprinted Duplex OPP Laminates cover a broad range of applications such as biscuits, confectionery, snacks and nuts. Specifications can be tailored to suit the graphic / technical requirements using a wide range of materials such as Clear OPP, Metalised OPP, White or Pearlised OPP, Matt OPP and Cast PP film, as well as relevant barrier properties.
Reverse printing gives a high gloss while a matt appearance can be provided via matt film or by surface printed pattern matt lacquer.
Clear or metallised Polyester (PET) laminated to a Low Density Polythene (LDPE) film in a typical 12/30 or 12/50 combination is extremely common in providing excellent barrier properties against moisture and light.
Products that benefit from these combinations are dried foods, powdered products and baking goods.
Additionally when laminating metallised Polyester to a quality polythene, it can give the look and feel of a high class foil based laminate.
Laminating paper to OPP highlights the advantages of lamination technology. It combines the traditional “feel” of paper in harmony with the technical properties of BOPP which can be tailored to suit end user requirements.
For example, metallised OPP can be used as the secondary film for beverage packaging to provide excellent moisture and aroma barrier
We can also laminate films from as thin as 3.5 microns right up to 500 microns thick.
We provide full technical advice on what combination best suits the enquiry and its end use. We work with the customer to make sure they receive the correct composition of laminate in order to preserve and sustain their product.
