What is BOPP? Why use BOPP Labels from Vintech Poly?

BOPP is an abbreviation for Biaxially-Oriented (BO) Polypropylene (PP). It is a sibling of Polypropylene (PP) and is currently considered the most appropriate printing surface. It is mostly used as a printing surface for labels and stickers while being present in textiles and making other plastic materials and parts. Fundamentally, polypropylene stretched flat gives us BOPP. It can be stretched in two directions, and that is where it got its name ‘Biaxially-oriented.’ 

 

How is BOPP produced?

 

BOPP is commonly produced using three methods, and those are: 
 

  • Tenter frame sequential process
  • Simultaneous tenter frame orientation
  • Double bubble process


Polypropylene PP, the BOPP parent, is the second most-produced synthetic plastic material globally, Polyethylene PE. This is because it is economical to produce and retain a wide variety of uses on performance characteristics.

 

BOPP and PP are commonly applied for
 

BOPP Labels for packaging
 

  • Containers for food products
  • Plastic ropes
  • Medical plastic equipment

  • Textile requirements

Since the material is versatile and resilient as a labeling product, BOPP labels are widely in use. BOPP labels or films are available in white, metallic colored, or transparent. 

 

What properties make BOPP popular?

 

The properties that make BOPP popular are:
 

  • Rigorousness – the strength and durability is superior quality. Keeps the labeling intact no matter what it has endured. This makes BOPP labels long-lasting.
  • Fatigue resistant – no matter how much time has passed or the products have traveled quite a distance, BOPP products remain unharmed. 
  • Moisture resistant – does not allow moisture to penetrate it and contaminate the products or affect the labels in that case.
  • Low toxicity has a deficient level of toxicity, making it safe containers for food and beauty products.
