BIAXPLEN launches new film grades for self-adhesive labels, confectionery and tobacco packaging

January 13/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- In 2019, BIAXPLEN partnered with its customers, multinational companies and SIBURs R&D centres to develop new films for a number of consumer segments, said the company.

 Unique for the Russian market, SOIL (pearl) and STG (transparent) label films are fused directly into polypropylene containers and do not require adhesives. These labels contribute to sustainable development and reduce carbon footprint through better feedstock efficiency and recyclability.

A LOBB film for fully wrapped labelling increases the output of finished (printed) labels by 10% compared to LOBA (standard pearl film for fully wrapped labelling) due to lower weight. The grade has undergone consumer testing and is commercially supplied to key manufacturers of bottled soft drinks.

A new TSHS tobacco film with better thermal shrinkage resistance designed specifically for high-speed packaging equipment helps improve visual properties of the end product.

A HOHG film grade for confectionery can be used to produce resealable packaging for chocolate bars. It retains the products consumer properties and complies with the current packaging and food safety requirements.

BIAXPLEN keeps engaging deeply with customers to develop joint innovative products and packaging solutions at SIBURs NIOST and PolyLab R&D centres in Tomsk and Skolkovo.

As MRC informed earlier, BIAXPLEN and Manucor will share their best practices in terms of R&D, sales and marketing, production, and technical support. Joining efforts with Manucors sales team will result in new opportunities in the European markets for BIAXPLEN. In turn, SIBUR will engage PolyLab, its Skolkovo-based R&D centre, to develop new products. Together, the parties expect to create the leading BOPP film producer in Europe.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, the PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,161,830 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 7% year on year. Deliveries of all grades of propylene polymers increased, with the homopolymer PP segment accounting for the largest increase.

BIAXPLEN is a subsidiary of SIBUR, a petrochemical company, and Russia's largest BOPP film producer. Its capacity amounts to 180 ktpa across five regions, and its products are exported to 27 countries.
