Luxembourg (November 14, 2016) — Jindal Films Europe is pleased to announce the latest development in polyolefin sealant technology. SealTOUGH™ is a unique coextruded packaging film, targeted to replace sealant layers in a lamination or single layers in mono-web applications.
SealTOUGH™ provides unmatched puncture resistance, enhanced clarity, improved modulus and seal strength that can exceed 5,000g/2.54cm. The latest breakthrough technology from Jindal Films gives the down gauge potential of 30%, 40%, or more compared to traditional sealant films.
Jindal Films continues to set new standards for performance and sustainable solutions to support the flexible packaging industry. SealTOUGH™ bridges the attributes of BOPP and blown PE film to achieve enhanced performance benchmarks for clarity and strength. Packaging designs utilizing SealTOUGH™ contribute to the environmental objectives for source reduction and recycling.
Compared to blown PE, SealTOUGH™ consistently outperforms. With a three-fold improvement in tensile strength, two-fold improvement in modulus, puncture resistance, and impact resistance, SealTOUGH™ surpasses the current applications of blown PE including confectionary, snacks, dry fruit and nuts, pasta, rice, bakery items, produce, and dry products. Utilizing SealTOUGH™ as FFS bags, freezer bags, lamination and hygienic bags makes use of property enhancements that allow for the use of thinner film, weight reduction and cost savings.
“This product offers superior performance in critical properties. SealTOUGH™ achieves the clarity of BOPP with the high seal strength of blown PE. The film’s superior puncture resistance and strength enables significant down gauging opportunities to provide both a performance advantage and cost savings,” said Laurent Chantraine, Market Development Manager at Jindal Films.
When replacing a 30µm blown PE film with SealTOUGH™ 18µm transparent film, you get more with less:
• 41% down gauging
• 2-fold improvement in clarity
• Equivalent ultimate seal strength
• 2-fold improvement in puncture resistance
• 2-fold improvement in impact resistance
• 3-fold improvement in tensile strength
• 2-fold improvement in modulus
• 50% reduction in elongation
Jindal Films will present SealTOUGH™ at its booth (Hall 7A, Stand 031) at ALL4PACK in Paris, November 14-17 2016 and will receive from the ALL4PACK Paris PACK EXPERT Committee one of the 9 Innovations Awards 2016 for his breakthrough SealTOUGH™ innovation.
