What is BOPP film

BOPP film


BOPP film – biaxially oriented polypropylene film (BOPP) is a polypropylene (PP) film that has been oriented in two directions (machine and transverse directions), using a tenter frame sequential process or the “double bubble process”.





The main features of the BOPP film are:


l   High gloss

l   Excellent clarity

l   High tensile strength

l   Improved stiffness

l   Good water vapor properties

l   Good dimensional stability and flatness

l   Good puncture and flex-crack resistance over a wide range of temperatures

l   Resistance to oil and grease

l   Is not affected by moisture, does not wrinkle or shrink when environment changes.




Because of the BOPP films superior strength at low gauges, flatness, clarity, light weight and excellent printability, it has become an indispensable packaging material for a wide variety of consumer products.
