Bicor™ 85 LTSC

Product Description

Bicor LTSC is a two-side coated OPP film, which is designed for use in high-speed or demanding horizontal, fin seal, packaging applications. The low-temperature seal coating (LTSC) delivers a low seal initiation temperature and wide operating range. LTSC\'s acrylic surface is excellent for surface printing and provides good aroma barrier.

Key Features

  • Wide sealing range with a low minim seal temperature (MST)
  • Excellent seal strength and hot tack
  • Robust performances on horizontal flowpack machines
  • Excellent humidity seal retention on LTSC side
  • Good flavour and aroma barrier
  • Outstanding optical properties
  • Ideal support for normal ink systems

Legal Statement

Contact your Jindal Films Customer Service Representative for potential food contact application compliance (e.g. FDA, EU, HPFB). This product is not intended for use in medical applications and should not be used in any such applications.

Processing Statement

  • LTSC is designed for use in horizontal packaging applications, such as bakery. This is an excellent film for high-speed HFFS equipment.
  • LTSC provides a forgiving, wide operating range for applications where accurate heat control is a problem, or dwell times vary because of frequent machine speed changes.
  • LTSC is only suitable for fin seal applications. The acrylic and LTSC coatings are not compatible for heat sealing to each other.
  • Surface print and lamination characteristics are similar to other acrylic-coated films (AB, AB-X).
  • Acrylic coating and its properties can be affected by humidity and water condensation.Thorough testing is recommended when considering acrylic coated films in refrigerated or frozen applications.
  • To avoid blocking, ghosting, high residual solvents, or decreased sealability, converters should eliminate the use of slow solvents (cellosolve, glycol ethers, MIBK, butanol, etc) when printing on acrylic surfaces. The use of esters should be minimized.
  • The low temperature seal coated surface is not designed as the print surface. Consult ink supplier for recommendations, and conduct thorough testing prior to printing on this surface.
