All BOPA film converters are familiar with the challenge to improve production efficiency. Reducing production stops for cleaning of the equipment is a sure improvement. Another area of attention is the reduction of fine powder released into the air during production. This powder may pollute the production environment, block the equipment as well as potentially the quality of the film.
Akulon Lopa is a specially designed engineered plastic with a lower oligomer count. It’s especially suited to medical packaging where migration has been a very critical parameter; and increasingly also for food packaging – where new food contact legislation in Europe could be about to change the playing field.
By using Akulon Lopa our customers can safeguard air quality in production by reducing the amount of powder released into the air – which means increased productivity through less equipment cleaning and maintenance; plus the ability to extend production cycles by reducing extrusion die vaporing.
