Biaxplen launched new polymer films production lines

February 18/2011

(SIBUR) -- The Novokuibyshev-based enterprise "Biaxplen NC" (Russia) hosted a ceremony for the launching of three new polymer films production lines, which should boost output from 26 thsd to 42 thsd tonnes per annum. The total investment in the expansion of the plants production facilities exceeds 500 mln rubles.

Thanks to its barrier, the optical and physical-mechanical properties of polymer film has result in it being widely used for packing goods in the food, perfume, tobacco, paper and other light industries. Earlier, "Biaxplen NC" was only engaged in the production of biaxially oriented polypropylene film (BOPP).

New types of film offer a different set of consumer properties. In particular, non-oriented 3-layer coextruded polypropylene film is characterised by high resistance to punctures and is widely used for lamination, as with BOPP and other kinds of film.

5-layer co-extruded polypropylene blown film has a high shrinking capacity, which ensures a high integrity seal in terms of further lamination and the opportunity to create complex materials for packaging bulk, grocery, and frozen foods, foods containing oils and fats, as well as coffee and tea.

The "Biaxplen" Group of companies is one of the main producers of biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film in Russia. SIBUR owns a 50% stake in the share capital of "BIAXPLEN LLC".
