Extend bakery product shelf life with OPP films

Bakery items protected by packaging made with coated OPPalyte™ and Bicor™ or high-barrier Metallyte™ oriented polypropylene (OPP) films retain their fresh-baked aroma, texture and taste longer than products wrapped in standard, uncoated OPP film.

Our special water-based coatings provide exceptional barrier protection from odors and moisture. For high protection from oxygen, choose transparent PVOH (polyvinyl alcohol)-coated Bicor, or for white and metal appearance, our Metallyte™ MU842.


OPPalyte, Bicor and Metallyte OPP films offer converters and end users the following product, economic and marketing advantages:

Good-to-extraordinary aroma barriers

Good-to-outstanding moisture barriers

High oxygen protection

Fast packaging speed on horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) machines

Low waste and downtime due to consistent film properties and coefficient of friction (COF)

High opacity

Robust print surface for appealing graphics

Exceptional gloss
